We are currently looking for an Events Manager to join the Events Team at The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Foundastion.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a non-formal education and learning framework operating in more than 130 countries and territories around the world, through which young people’s achievements outside of academia are recognised and celebrated.
We at The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation are the engine that drives and supports the Award’s growth, access, and impact across the globe.
It is our long-term ambition that every eligible young person aged 14 – 24 will have the opportunity to participate in the Award. Our vision is that 20% of them are from at risk and marginalised communities for whom the Award can be truly life changing.
The Award helps to inspire millions of young people. And it’s not limited by the boundaries of one programme or place. There are more than 1 million young people currently completing their own unique programme, via hundreds of thousands of youth-focused partners and operators, including schools, youth organisations, examination boards and youth offender institutions.
This role will contribute to the implementation of the Foundation's strategy through the management and delivery of various events, taking every opportunity to enhance delegate and stakeholder experience and using those opportunities to promote the Award to all.
You will be a strategic, diligent, creative thinker with excellent communication and relationship-building skills and keen to use this opportunity to build on the strong foundations already in place. You will be joining a small but effective, supportive and collaborative team in which being a team player is vital. You will be motivated to pay attention to detail, to take initiative and ownership of the responsibilities and tasks of the role.
This role is based in London, and you will need to be able to commute to the office. You will be required to attend events which will primarily take place within the UK but very occasionally internationally. Please view the attached Job Description for further details on the role.
The closing date for applications is the 30 November 2021. Interviews will take place the week beginning 6 December 2021 and we are looking for the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.
To apply for this role, please ensure that you submit a cover letter (which should clearly show how you meet the requirements in the Job Description) and a CV. Your application will not be considered if you do not submit both documents.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
