Event Assistant

Special Events are meaningful experiences for clients and guests and the Event Assistants are an instrumental part of that experience. Clients may spend weeks, months or even years planning for an event. When the process comes to completion on the event date, the Event Assistant works with the client’s Event Coordinator to confidently and calmly ensure that all details and vendors are managed, and clients are left feeling relaxed and can enjoy the time with friends and family.

Because an Event Assistant is jumping into an event on the day it’s happening, it is imperative that the Assistant has an outgoing, welcoming and hospitable personality and is comfortable serving people with diverse backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles. Simultaneously, the Event Assistant must be able to follow the Event Coordinator’s lead in ensuring that all necessary tasks and responsibilities are effectively managed to create the perfect event.

Event Assistants must have strong attention to detail and time management skills. Since events take place on time no matter the circumstances, staff members must also be reliable, punctual and ready to take on any situation that arises. Events may take place at either of Jorgensen Farms’ venues: the Historic Barn and Oak Grove.
