Library Life — published 26/07/21


The Library Group runs two upscale business centres in Brussels focusing on great service and beautiful décor. Our members are professionals and entrepreneurs from all sectors including banking, lobbyism, consultants and design. The most important job of the Reception & Events Manager is to carry on the values and communication style of the Library Group and maintain member satisfaction and attraction.


The Library stands out for the unparalleled level of service and personal attention. If you get a kick out of putting our client’s needs before your own, then this is the place for you. You must speak English and French fluently. Knowledge of the Nordic languages/culture and/or Dutch is a bonus. You are the kind of person, who will stop to pick up a cigarette butt on the pavement in front of the house and take dead leaves off a plant without being asked to do so. You take pride in knowing that you make a difference because you care.


You must be presentable, polished and know how to dress when jeans and sneakers are not an option. Creativity, team spirit and a sense of humour are also vital. This is a hands-on job, not suited for people who prefer to sit still all day. Occasional evening hours should be expected in case of evening events.


What we can offer

A stylish, fun and creative environment with contact to lots of small businesses. A great learning experience for the future and a part in our success as we grow together. We will invest in you in terms of courses for you to expand your qualification. You’ll join a team, where we have a lot of fun, look out for each other and genuinely like hanging out together.
