Event Planner

Location: Washington, DC
Our Values


United Fray 
is seeking a full-time Event Planner who wants to be part of a dynamic growing company that helps Make Fun Possible through sportseventsfitnesstravel, and media
We’re on a mission to never stop playing. As an Inc. 5000 company we’re growing rapidly and developing from a social sports company to a full lifestyle community. This is a high growth, high opportunity position!

We are seeking a full-time Event Planner that will be responsible for spear heading our various event planning efforts. You'll be tasked with creating parties and events that are fun, engaging, and that people wouldn’t dream of missing.  

From player parties to happy hours to field trips, to corporate contracted events, you’ll be operating as the lead event planning wizard. Some of the events you'll be orchestrating include...
  • Hungry Human Hippo on Ice (yes its as fun as it sounds!)
  • River Flotillas
  • Glow Yoga on the National Mall
  • Corporate Cornhole Tournaments
  • Our annual pro-bono Charity Kickball Tournament
  • Staff Parties
  • And many many more!
You should have event planning experience and a desire to jump into the niche portion of the event planning world that requires you to conceptualize and plan (soup to nuts) events that achieve our various objectives. You'll jump from marketing events, to revenue driven events, as well as in house events such as staff training meetings. Each event has their own objectives, challenges and opportunities and you'll be able to identify and work through them.

The right team member will know what it means to work for a small company vs a large conglomerate. They will value the benefits such a position offers... an ability to make an impact, fun dynamic content, diverse work days, strong bonds with team members, flexible hours, but must also understand the responsibilities of such a role...  that if its going to be, "its up to me", that the show must go on and work isn't always able to be left "at the office". 
The Event Coordinator will:
  • Lead the planning & execution of special event planning geared toward our membership base as well as the general public, focused on increasing business revenue
  • Build and maintain relationships with event vendors from venues to service providers
  • Execute necessary paperwork for permitting and contracting venues for all events
  • Actively build out event process and procedures to establish the "way we do things" and create organization
  • Execute promotional events that increase brand awareness and drive brand and sales growth
  • Assit with 0n-site social media capture and documentation of event festivities
  • Widening our demographic by creating new & additional opportunities to make fun possible
Your Personality & Expertise:
  • Outgoing & enthusiastic - able to talk to strangers
  • Positive attitude
  • Detail oriented & incredibly organized
  • Strong communication and presentation skills
  • Innovative problem solver
  • Willingness and ability to work flexible hours including nights and weekends
  • College degree or commensurate work experience
  • Ability to operate company vehicles and lift 25 lbs 
  • $40,000-$50,000 dependant on experience
  • Opportunity for salary and position growth
  • Bonuses provided as earned
  • Subsidized DC Health Link health care coverage including Dental & Vision
  • Paid Vacation, Holidays & Sick Time
  • Generous Market leading 401k Plan
  • Fun Dynamic Work Environment
  • Free Registration to our Leagues & Events
When applying please be prepared to provide salary requirements and a pitch for why you are the right person to join our team!
