Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
Sifted is looking for a senior conference producer to join our growing team. We currently run our popular digital panels – Sifted Talks – but have plans to rapidly expand our events portfolio in 2021 and beyond.
Sifted is the media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. Thirty months after launching, we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
We currently run our popular hourly digital events – Sifted Talks – and we’re going to be doing more – both in terms of our intimate ‘member only’ events and exciting in-person events as the world reopens.
The senior conference producer will be responsible for agenda research, speaker acquisition, production and delivery (digital and in-person) for a startup, scaleup and investor audience.
Reporting to the head of events and working closely with the wider team, the senior conference producer will be responsible for creating thought-provoking and best-in-class agendas that Sifted can be proud of. You’ll get there through developing an extensive understanding of the European startup ecosystem, careful research, creating exciting agendas and encouraging the best and brightest speakers to take to the stage at Sifted events.
