The King’s Fund paid-for events business began in 2006 and has grown organically year on year by developing new products and increasing reach. The events programme attracts participants from across the NHS, local authority, people using health and care services, commercial, statutory, and the voluntary and community sectors. The King’s Fund’s vision is that the best possible health and care is available to all and our work involves understanding developments, challenges and opportunities across health and care. The events programme supports our organisational goals and brings people together to discuss, share and learn.
The events and partnerships team is responsible for delivering a large portion of the free events that take place across The Fund; including online events, roundtables, workshops, receptions and dinners. The team also has ownership over our paid-for events programme; which includes virtual conferences, in-person conferences and congresses. The events and partnerships team ensures that there is a co-ordinated and uniform approach to delivering virtual or in-person events, and that each is delivered to the same high standard.
Working with the Head of Events and Partnerships, you’ll take on a varied and interesting role. You will take the lead in organising, delivering and evaluating a portfolio of paid for and free to attend events. You will liaise closely with colleagues across the Fund to generate new conference ideas and lead on specific event content, playing a key role in the process of researching and creating individual event programmes. You will support the development of partnerships to generate income and build strong relationships with external organisations. You will have responsibility for ensuring our annual programme of events run smoothly, keep to strict budgets, meet the expectations of our delegates and enhance the public profile of The King’s Fund and its work.
Here at the Fund, we actively encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds, people from Black and ethnic minority backgrounds, those with disabilities and from the LGBT+ community. We want people to bring their unique blend of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and knowledge as we recognise that diversity makes us stronger.
