We are searching for hosts to accommodate the demand and growth that we have seen in recent months.
About the position: Hosts are responsible for the facilitation of our events, from start to finish usually around 2-3 hours).

A host is an exceptional communicator, with a vibrant personality. They are equal parts creative and attentive to details.
Host responsibilities: Before events, hosts should market the event on their platforms. Even if we're sold out, we want people to feel welcome to join us at another event. The host is also responsible for preparing gift bags, place settings, and thank you cards before their events. They arrive at least 30 minutes early to events so that the table is set in advance of guest arrival. As guests arrive, the host greets them warmly and leads them to their seat. From there, hosts will facilitate the entire experience, which includes: introductions, icebreakers, guided conversations, gift opening, dinner and drinks, Bingo/ games, giveaways, and goodbyes. At the end of each event, we start a group chat and take a group photo.
