Event Lead

We’re Tasting Collective (tastingcollective.com), the nation’s leading members-only dining club on a mission to transform the traditional restaurant experience into one that is all about fostering human connection. We’ve been hibernating for the past year and a half (thanks COVID), but we’re FINALLY coming back and are in the process of relaunching our private dining club in the 12 cities that we were operating in before the pandemic (one of which was Charlotte).

We’re looking for a rockstar Event Lead to help host our chef-led dining events at Charlotte’s very best restaurants. As Event Lead, you will be the face of the Tasting Collective brand at our events. You will interface with acclaimed chefs, restaurant managers, and our members to make sure our events run seamlessly and are successful for both our members and restaurant partners.

• Setting up our event equipment at restaurants (PA System, menus, etc.)
• Configuring seating charts
• Welcoming attendees and checking for their proof of COVID vaccination
• Emceeing during our events and running Q&As with the chefs
• Breaking down equipment post-event

The ideal candidate will be incredibly dependable, hyper-organized, detail-oriented, outgoing, personable, self-confident, and comfortable delegating tasks/managing people. The ability to work independently, in a high-energy/fast-paced environment (restaurants) is essential. Past work experience in event coordination, theater/performance production, and/or TV/Film production is a big plus, but not essential. Past experience working in restaurants doesn’t hurt either but is by no means essential. Oh, and ideally you’re passionate about food/restaurants.

Note, this is not a full-time position. And, we will not be able to hire any applicants who are unable to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.

To apply:
