Job description

To help take Wings for Life (WfL) to the next level, we are looking for a stand-out candidate to develop, manage and deliver our existing WfL and third-party events, maximising fundraising and awareness for the charity. The Event Manager will also be expected to take a creative and entrepreneurial approach to expanding the event portfolio, driving the potential of our target areas of Formula One, Cycling and E-Sports.

Based in the heart of Covent Garden, in Red Bull UK's vibrant headquarters, WfL in the UK are a small team of committed fundraisers who collectively raise circa £2million a year to fund research and clinical trials to find a cure for spinal cord injury. As Red Bull cover all of our costs, 100% of every penny we raise goes directly to our research portfolio. We are one of four global offices, with other WfL teams being based in Austria, the US and Germany. Collectively, we are making a difference: since WfL was first founded, a number of vital breakthroughs have been made and there is now a very real prospect that spinal cord injury could be cured in a generation.

Due to our flat structure, the role is extremely autonomous and includes senior touchpoints with our Board of Trustees, senior supporters and Ambassadors. We are seeking a confident individual, with bags of energy and enthusiasm, to join our team and really own this role and make it their own...
