At UWE Bristol, one of the UK’s largest universities, we’re building a brand new strategic communications and engagement department.

Our new department is different from the norm. It is agile. Creative. Responsive. Innovative. Think of it as our very own boutique agency. We’re looking for people to help shape its future.

As Events Officer you will be working within the University’s event team and will assist in planning, coordinating and delivering the series of annual graduation ceremonies. As well as coordinating over 6,000 students, 12,000 guests and university staff you will have responsibility for VIP guests, Honorary Graduates and a team of student ambassadors. The role also supports the team as a whole, assisting with other events where required.

This is an exciting fast paced role requiring someone with excellent attention to detail, excellent organisational skills and initiative in thinking fast on your feet.

While the work is unusually varied and rewarding, the benefits are every bit as exciting - from a generous 25+ days of annual leave, to support for flexible working.
