With the enforced shift to home working and lockdowns across the UK & Northern Ireland, this charity's Events team had to adapt its style of delivery dramatically. They moved to delivering 100% of events online, but they are now developing a future strategy for a hybrid mix of virtual and in person events. Therefore as they look to expand in order to deliver more events, an opportunity has arisen for someone to join their expert team.

This varied role requires you to support the Senior Events Officer and Events Officers to deliver high quality corporate events across PR, Communications, Fundraising Conservation Science and Internal Communications to meet the needs of the internal clients.

The role requires strong attention to detail, meticulous planning skills and excellent communication skills as well as being able to manage conflicting deadlines.

Day to day the role involves working with colleagues across the business to deliver events on Zoom, Teams and the EventsAIR conferencing platform as well as administrative tasks to support the Events Development Manager as head of team. As they move back towards holding in person events, the successful candidate will support a variety of events from Parliamentary Receptions to Exhibition Trade stands alongside the virtual events as well as deliver smaller online events and webinars.

Essential skills, knowledge & experience:

  • Knowledge of online events and conferencing tools
  • Experience of events or project management
  • Ability to undertake assigned or routine tasks in a timely manner and to an acceptable standard
