Interactive Producer

Sydney, New South Wales

The role

Lumi's Event Technology Producers are an impressive set of people.  They have to be, because we rely on them to represent our company at meetings and events all over the world. We give them responsibility for implementing our interactive technology solutions at meetings and events, we expect them to provide a friendly and professional level of support to our clients (many of whom are in the ASX Top 100) and to ensure the technology runs smoothly throughout the event.

Our focus at Lumi is always on providing a high quality of service and leading edge technology. We do this through the use of Lumi's award winning solutions and the commitment and dedication of its people.

The role gives the opportunity to travel both in Australia and overseas. The successful applicant will work in a dynamic industry, gain client responsibility, and develop further their technical and client relationship skills.

Events may require you to be on-site during weekends and public holidays, time off in lieu will be given for any work carried out at these times.  Events are interspersed with days in the office; task undertaken while in the office will be varied.  You could be involved in post-event processes, the production of your next event, client support, testing new products, supporting other team members, training on new products or project work.

The Applicant

Starting salary $40-45k plus super depending on experience.
