Careers

Would you like to be part of something very special?

At SBK Healthcare, a team of highly professional, talented people share a vision of creating unique, conferences and courses for the NHS. We care about the welfare of our colleagues, speakers, attendees and sponsors, and pride ourselves in providing an excellent service. As a team, we are incredibly proud of what we have done, what we are doing and are excited about what the future holds.


Working at SBK Healthcare can be both challenging and fulfilling

Each member of SBK Healthcare has individual responsibilities but every event is a team effort where we all have ownership. Created by the producer, supported by marketing and database management, promoted by social media and sponsorship, fulfilled by operations and customer services, and finally, closed by finance – our events are nurtured by all.


Would you like to know more about three of the main roles?


Key qualities of the conference producer

  • Communication and interpersonal skills - you will be dealing with a huge variety of people on a daily basis. A successful conference producer needs to communicate professionally, actively listen, negotiate carefully and respond to difficulties with confidence.
  • Interest in research – by gathering information from a wide variety of people, you will have to interpret what you learn, discard the red herrings and transform raw research into a compelling and educational conference.
  • Excellent time management and organisation – with tight deadlines, and many tasks demanding your attention, the conference producer needs to be able to juggle responsibilities calmly and deliver polished events.
  • Commercial acumen - you must be able to identify the market, their needs and budgetary restraints. Your understanding of the cost implications in each topic will be used to shape your event.
  • Creative and accurate copy writing - producers are responsible for writing the conference programme and all promotional material. Original thinking and the ability to reflect the needs of the audience will deliver a successful conference.

Key qualities of the event organiser

  • Attention to detail - from creating the delegate packs to proofing attendee badges, dealing with expenses, supplier invoices and post event paperwork, an eye for accuracy is essential.
  • Excellent communication skills – it is all in the planning and organisers are responsible for bringing the speakers, delegates, venue and external suppliers together for the event on the day.
  • Initiative and ideas – it’s a live event so anything can happen! Both on the day and in the office, organisers need to have their eyes and ears open for opportunities and challenges, able to predict what will happen and be ahead of the game.
  • A positive attitude - an excellent organiser is a great team worker – both responsible for organising your events but also supporting the team in their day-to-day challenges. You need to want to deliver great customer service and care for the people you work with to make a difference in this role.

Key qualities of the customer service representative

  • Excellent communication skills - customer service representatives enjoy speaking to people and you need a confident telephone manner to gather information and promote the conferences being held.
  • Motivated, enthusiastic and full of energy – enabling attendees to book onto our events is at the heart of our business and your engagement of the whole team in your role will make all the difference to the energy of the office.
  • Reliable and accurate – from inputting the correct data you gather to delivering on what you have agreed to do, it is vital that you are a reliable member of the team and attendees can trust you to do what you say you will do.
  • Multi-tasking and well organised - as part of customer services, you will need to organise your own time, be flexible in your office duties and be able to work under pressure as event deadlines cannot be moved.
