What does an event assistant do?

All the things!

The primary goal is to assist our wedding and event planners and production team with set up, break down and hosting events here at the venue. They help ensure that every event at CJ’s Off the Square is both beautiful to look at and beautifully executed so our clients and guests have an amazing time.

You can expect to be on your feet for about 8 hours, give or take. Of course we take breaks, but you do need to hustle as there is always a lot to do in a limited amount of time.

Most of the work takes place in our garden and outdoor pavilion, however there are design elements in our historic home that will also be part of your responsibility.
