Who we are looking for

Do you enjoy seeing events come to life and making sure they run smoothly? Have you got experience managing events both large and small?

We are looking for a motivated and talented professional to join our Events team as an Events Manager. Your previous experience of managing events will help you succeed in this role as you will provide hands-on leadership to a team delivering a portfolio of programmes, assessments and other events across the organisation.

You'll be responsible for overseeing events ranging from training sessions for 20 people through to high profile events with hundreds of delegates and external conferences with VIPs. This includes being accountable for all event logistics such as detailed event plans, timetables, budget balancing, allocating team members to attend events and building contingency plans for a high-quality experience for all involved.

Working in a hybrid way, you’ll be attached to either our Birmingham, London or Manchester office and will report to the Associate Director of Events. In line with our current ways of working, you’ll be expected to be in the office at least 1 day a month, in addition to team days. This is subject to review.

In addition to the day to day tasks involved in event management, you can expect to be a part of shaping the culture of the whole events department and working collaboratively with other areas in the organisation to tailor events to their specific audiences.

Some of the skills and experience you'll need to thrive your role are exemplary organisational skills, experience understanding and analysing budgets as well as developing staff within your team. It is essential that you have line management experience and experience of managing medium-sized teams.

Finally, we want you to be able to celebrate successes as they happen!
