Business Events Manager – Red Tree Business Suites

Salary: £ Competitive / Dependant on Experience

Location: Glasgow

Closing Date: 18th May 2018

The newly created position of Business Events Manager is available in the Red Tree Business Suites for a proactive and dynamic individual with previous experience in business centre management or hospitality or event management.

One of many developments by Clyde Gateway, Red Tree Business Suites has been created especially for small and medium sized businesses.
