About New Local
“An ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE bunch of change-makers.
New Local puts me and my team at the heart of an exciting movement
that’s genuinely transforming our relationships with our communities”
Sandra Farquharson, Assistant Director, Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames
“It’s rare to work for an organisation as committed and positive as this one.
There’s an energy, focus and enthusiasm that runs through everything – from
the core mission of community power down to their innovative events”
Simon Kaye, former team member, New Local
“We recruit nice people and encourage them to be friendly, caring colleagues and the senior management model this. Does this make us soft under performers?
Absolutely not. Our membership, revenues and impact grow every year. That's because what drives performance is not whip-cracking managers but clarity of vision, a sense of shared mission and skilled, motivated people.”
Adam Lent, Chief Executive, New Local (view the Twitter thread)
New Local is the proud host of Stronger Things, an annual event that’s become known as the place for equipping and inspiring those that believe the future of public services is community-powered (watch the videos from 2020 and 2022).
The profile of this event has grown massively in recent years and we now want to take it to the next level. Our vision for Stronger Things 2023 is an international festival of community power, a must-attend for professionals and activists from across the globe.
We’re also eager to launch a second event under the Stronger Things banner, as well as work with our network of local authorities and other organisations to increase the income-generating events that help resource our work.
You and your role
This new role is an exciting opportunity for an events professional who wants to build on the work we’ve already done and make Stronger Things their own.
We’re looking for someone who already has extensive experience of events planning, management and delivery. We need a doer as well as a thinker, not afraid to embrace both direction-setting strategic thinking as well as hands-on tasks.
As we move to make Stronger Things financially self-supporting you’ll also need a strong track-record of growing income – a natural at starting and sustaining positive relationships with the fantastic organisations that support community power.
Our brilliant network and events team will support your work and, as the Stronger Things approaches, you’ll be expected to lead staff from across the organisation as everyone pitches in.
Just as important as all the above is someone with the imagination and rigour to keep our events standing out. ‘Keeping the quirky’ might sound cheesy, but for us, it’s a fundamental part of creating the warm, safe and fun space that enables people to share and learn with vulnerability.
Location: New Local operates a highly flexible approach to work location and welcomes applications from across the UK. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK.
Key tasks and responsibilities
- Envision and innovate - Lead the conversation across our members, stakeholders and team about what they need from our flagship event. Use this to develop its theme and format, combining virtual and real-life aspects.

- Grow the audience - Bring in new people from different sectors and communities as well as make our digital audience a global one.
- Develop our income - Bring in new sponsors and partners (and increase their opportunities for engagement) to help pay to the costs of this event.
- Secure speakers with something to say – Find us rock star speakers who will inspire our audience.
- Keep the quirky – Don't lose sight of the little things that make our events special. This year we ditched our registration desks, had a big pink sofa centre stage and hosted an after-hours jazz band. You’ll beat that.
- Establish and deliver new events - Use the Stronger Things banner to introduce an events programme from scratch.
- Develop our business - Work with our organisation partners to develop new, income-generating, events that help fund our work.
- Protect our data - Use processes, software and systems in a way that protects our event registration data.
- Collaborate with colleagues - Work closely with our research, practice and communications teams, ensuring our events are an asset to their work.
- Muck in - Work alongside the rest of your team (and the rest of the organisation!), sharing in event and member admin, never afraid of getting involved in even the most basic jobs.
Knowledge, skills and experience needed
- Experienced events professional, with a deep understanding and demonstrable background in delivering amazing high-profile events for large audiences.
- Broad-ranging and adaptable, equally comfortable in front of a potential sponsor, attendee spreadsheet and strategy planning session.
- Great communicator, with an ability to write compelling emails and pitch persuasively in-person.
- Relationship-builder, a natural friend-maker for an organisation that relies on strong professional connections
- Data-lover, who is not just an excellent record keeper, but someone who pushes data to spot gaps and opportunities for our organisation.
- Innovative and entrepreneurial, committed to evolving the experience of our members and event participants
- A champion for our mission, bringing an understanding of community power and a commitment to its principles.
Above all, a friendly and supportive colleague able to work in a highly creative and collaborative environment that encourages autonomy and excellence from all members of the team.

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.
We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.

We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. And we’re particularly looking to increase the number of applications from those with lived experience of stroke and those from under-represented communities.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
In 2019, we developed a bold new corporate strategy so that we can rebuild more lives after stroke and make a bigger difference to people’s lives. To help us deliver our strategy and make a real difference, we are looking to recruit talented people to a number of new roles. If you would like to support stroke survivors to rebuild their lives, we want to hear from you!
