Events Coordinator (x 2)
Full-time, 35 hours per week
As Events Coordinator, you will need to have experience of coordinating, organising and facilitating conferences and events both virtually and face to face. Experience of virtual event platforms would also be required. You will need to have good skills in advertising and marketing techniques for events including utilising social media. The ability to communicate with a wide range of people in a professional manner, written and verbally as well as excellent organisational skills is vital, with a keenness to improve processes.
You will have the ability to plan and prioritise work under pressure, meeting deadlines with tight schedules. Most importantly, you will be a team player with a ‘can do’ attitude and a positive approach to work. An interest in medicine, science or healthcare would be an advantage, but is not essential.
There will be occasional shift working and outside of agreed hours where events require it.
We have two vacancies for the Event Coordinator position.
Pathology is at the heart of modern healthcare. Pathologists work to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor diseases and are involved in the diagnosis of disorders affecting every organ of the body, from before birth to after death. The majority of tests requested by doctors will be performed and interpreted by a clinical scientist or medically qualified pathologist.
The Royal College of Pathologists is a professional membership organisation with over 11,000 members who are doctors and scientists working in hospitals, universities and laboratories in the UK and overseas. We work with pathologists at every stage of their career – from setting curricula, organising training and running exams, to approving job descriptions, publishing best-practice guidance and providing continuing professional development.
We offer attractive staff benefits including 25 days annual leave rising with length of service, enhanced employer contributions to pension scheme, an employee discount scheme, and season ticket loans, as well as a cycle to work scheme.
