Job Opening:

Manager of Events and Hospitality

About This Role

At its heart, the Rabbit Room aims to cultivate a joyful working environment in which each member of the team is empowered to think creatively, to strive for excellence, and to faithfully, generously, and humbly pour out their unique gifts in order to reveal the beauty of Christ to the world. 

 

As Manager of Events and Hospitality, you will provide leadership for public-facing Rabbit Room events at North Wind Manor and elsewhere. You also will manage events and hospitality staff and be the primary point of contact for contract help and vendor relationships. Your highly organized disposition will ensure that you are able to manage the many Rabbit Room events and hospitality activities throughout the year. You are calm under pressure, keeping a generous attitude toward attendees and staff alike. Your leadership style includes strong boundaries coupled with clear communication.

An important aspect of this role is to program activities at North Wind Manor that support the mission of the Rabbit Room. Presently, the staff (approximately 14) works out of the manor during the week. Programming must take this into account to ensure the smooth operation of Rabbit Room work outside the context of events and hospitality.

Above North Wind Manor is The 3 Cups Inn, a hospitality space with three rooms and a kitchen. While not a Rabbit Room property, the Rabbit Room regularly coordinates with the inn hosts to house speakers and other guests, who are participating in Rabbit Room events. You will work alongside the Executive Director and the inn hosts to coordinate the use of this space.

  • Lead ideation and development of new events at North Wind Manor and elsewhere that missionally and financially support the Rabbit Room.

  • Collaborate regularly with the development team to ensure events and hospitality supports fundraising goals and objectives.

  • Embrace a proactive approach that allows you to engage in other Rabbit Room activities that interest and appeal to you.

  • Note that the nature of this role will require some work in the evening and on weekends.


What We Are Looking For

  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent.

  • 3-5 years of experience.

  • Outstanding communication skills.

  • A passion for putting on a great event that delights attendees.

  • An understanding of the Rabbit Room’s Gospel-centered mission and a strong belief in the importance of what we do.

About the Rabbit Room

The Rabbit Room was conceived as an experiment in creative community. After author/singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson’s first visit to the Oxford home of C. S. Lewis, he returned to Nashville with a renewed conviction that community nourishes good and lasting artistic work. The Rabbit Room, the name of the back room of the pub where the Oxford Inklings (including Lewis, Tolkien, and Charles Williams, among others) shared their stories, began as an online store for books and music and a blog with contributors who are authors, songwriters, artists, and pastors. Over the years, it has grown to include a publishing house, podcast network, an annual arts conference called Hutchmoot, a theater program, a beautiful community and event space called North Wind Manor, and a vibrant community of artists and creators.
