About the Company

The Fx Group is a family of organisations including FutureX, WeAreTheFuture and the Mettā Network. They work to harness the power of entrepreneurs to tackle some of the world's greatest challenges. They host international summits and retreats that bring together visionaries, movers, shakers, trendsetters, entrepreneurs, and educators, with the aim of creating a better world through business.

From high profile conferences attended by 1000 delegates, through to bespoke, immersive retreats and programmes for groups of less than 10, their events vary markedly in terms of scale, style, and tone. They all, however, share customary attention to detail and personal touch that sets them apart.

The Role

You will provide assistance to the Fx team as they begin their busy 2018 programme of events. Whilst you will sit on the events team, you will also provide assistance on a variety of other tasks including, but not limited to: social media, marketing, design, administration, website maintenance, business development and sales.
