- Manage event budgets, keeping tight controls on all associated costs.
- Identify and maintain a list of, and relationships with, key venues and suppliers.
- Working closely with the Philanthropy Manager, Leadership Team and our Co-Founder to further develop our Cultural Engagement (identify themes, synergies and angles to promote and amplify our conservation approach and partners among relevant networks) and the Flourishing Diversity initiative:
- implementing the engagement components of our five-year strategy;
- researching potential opportunities for strategic engagement in wider events or networks e.g., international summits and conferences (UNFCCC, IUCN, Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), World Economic Forum, etc);
- identifying relevant networks and stakeholders among our targeted sectors (arts, music, corporate and finance, media, etc);
- working with the communications team to develop key materials tailored to key audiences (videos, brochures, presentations, social media content).
- Working closely with our Co-Founder to support her broader engagement activities.
- Provide logistics support to our Programme team, partner organisations and beneficiaries (Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, youth, women groups, etc) to attend international conferences, workshops and events.
- Support Synchronicity Earth’s participation in identified events.
- Provide support to Trustees and the Leadership Team on contact management; ensure our database is kept up to date and drive targeted engagement in individuals and groups across our networks.
- Maintain relationships and support the stewardship of existing contacts across the various targeted sectors (arts, music, corporate and finance, media, etc).
