HILMA EVENTS & PROGRAMMING MANAGER - GENERATOR STOCKHOLM

WHO ARE WE

Generator is on a journey. Appropriate, given that we're a lifestyle accommodation brand. The journey began in London, swung through a heap of European capitals on its way to dominating the world. No biggie. Fast Company named us one of the top 50 most innovative global companies. We, of course, agree. And now this top 50 most innovative global company (did we mention that?) wants a pretty awesome Events & Programming Manager for Generator Stockholm.

Our spaces are safe and seriously social, in the proudest part of the beating heart of the cities we love. Cultural action, creative pulse and an outstanding way to waste some of the finite time the universe has given you - that's what Generator offers. Holds true for staff and visitors equally, and while chic design is always the backdrop, every Generator in every destination reflects the unique beat of that city's heart. 

BEING YOURSELF is the key to bringing the Generator story and brand to life.
