Job description

The Legatum Institute is looking for an exceptional Events Manager, with significant experience in the design and delivery of high-class events and excellent customer experience.

The Legatum Institute is a London-based think-tank with a mission to build a global movement of people committed to creating the pathways from poverty to prosperity and the transformation of society. One of the ways we do this is through our work developing the practical solutions and data tools that will help build inclusive and peaceful societies with open economies and empowered people and then building a coalition of leaders and decisions makers to have impact on the ground. We use a range of digital and physical materials to engage politicians, policymakers, investors, business leaders, philanthropists, journalists, and researchers in the UK and around the world.

The post-holder will deliver a comprehensive annual programme of high-quality events and intentionally build relationships with our key contacts, delivering an excellent experience to all in our growing network of guests.

The postholder will be accountable, for the excellent end-to-end delivery of a portfolio of our annual events: from Global launch events and awards, through to international in-country engagement events around the world and to roundtables, Zoom webinars and meetings – hosting events in our amazing convening space in Mayfair, as well as other special venues in London and in other parts of the world when appropriate.

The postholder will ensure that the full experience of guest engagement and touchpoints with Legatum is world class, first time, every time.  We host a wide range of renowned and influential speakers and guests including top politicians, editors, journalists, authors, the diplomatic community, academics, business leaders and sector leaders across the public square.  Previous speakers at our events have included Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Lord Jonathan Sacks, and the Dalai Lama.

In last year we have transitioned to deliver all our convening online, using the latest technology and formats to engage global audiences. You’ll be joining us at a pivotal moment of Legatum’s convening, to shape and sharpen our events strategy and reach further UK and global audiences through creative concepts and spaces.

This role is an exciting opportunity to develop and enhance Legatum’s growing events programme.

  • Assist with website updates, event presentations, and video graphics as needed.
  • Proactively externally scan to identify global commentators and high-profile individuals to speak on key issues and trends.
  • Monitor, evaluate and report KPI metrics to the Senior Team and Executive as defined in our yearly success criteria.
