Customer Experience and Event Planning Liaison
You put the ‘panache’ in parties. You understand it is more than just dinner and drinks; it is a feast for the senses.
You are a creative, imaginative, unique, food-lover with artistic experience. You can design a stunning tablescape and you know how to style and present food. A visionary who helps dream up the big-picture dining experience, but still focuses on the smallest details. You’re often complimented on your impeccable taste level and attention to the party guest experience.
Follow your passion to Elephants Catering & Events. Spend your days designing the ultimate catering experience for our guests. This fun, local company seeks a liaison to partner with our Executive Chef, CEO, Marketing and Catering Division leaders to advise and deliver fabulous dinner parties, weddings, corporate events, happy hours, picnics, galas, and everything in between.
You’ll spend your days building relationships with Event Planners and their clients; understanding how to execute the creative and culinary vision; and enhancing the flair and elegance of the entire experience. During events, you will help realize our Executive Chef’s vision and even add suggestions of your own. You’ll also document the experience and follow up with clients for feedback. You’ll need to become very well acquainted with all of our venues and partner vendors, staying up to date on trends as well as operations.
Your experience can come from a lot of places - fine dining, event planning, catering, floral design… we are open to what you can bring to our table. What we do require is an excellent culture fit. That means fun, down-to-earth, friendly, and warm. You need a strong artistic eye and, of course, you must be absolutely passionate about high-quality food and service.
