GLL makes community services and spaces better for everyone. And it’s about more than just money. Our people invest time, energy and effort into helping and improving communities through the services we offer - and with great results. Through “Better” we provide leisure centres, children’s services, spas, libraries, extreme spots, event spaces and standalone gyms. 

We're looking for a customer-focused, confident Events Assistant to work at the Copper Box Arena, set in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. This interesting role will see you assist on a diverse range of events from weddings, to parties and film shoots.

This is an ideal role for someone looking to start a career in the events industry. You'll most likely have experience of working in hospitality such as hotels, restaurants or catering and your attention to detail and professionalism will be second to none. You'll be working with our customers and clients, helping to ensure that their event is a success, so you'll need to be friendly, presentable and fluent in English. You'll make sure that the facilities and equipment are presentable, clean and safe and also assist our Events Managers and customers throughout the event.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:

  • Pension schemes
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development

If you feel your experience matches this role, apply now.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
