Jacob’s Pillow seeks a Special Events Manager to develop, plan, and execute a wide variety of events, both to raise funds and to cultivate and steward relationships. While many of the Pillow’s events take place on-site at Jacob’s Pillow, off-site events include other locations in the Berkshires and may also include New York and Boston. The Special Events Manager plays an important role in the Pillow’s Philanthropic Engagement department and works closely with all members of the department and with Marketing, Production, Box Office, Finance, and more in managing a successful event schedule. The position also works directly with Jacob’s Pillow’s Board of Trustees, given their important role in this type of fundraising.
The Special Events Manager must be self-motivated, committed to working at the highest level of quality, able to work both independently and in collaboration, multi-task on concurrent projects, and thrive within extremely tight deadlines.
