Do you want to be part of a high level event at the cutting edge of urban policy in London?
We are looking for 10-15 support staff to help us run The London Conference 2019 on Tuesday 5 November from 8:30-17:30 at The Royal Institution in Mayfair, London.
This is a freelance position, which is paid per hour at the London Living Wage.

We will assign support staff to work for either the entire day or just the morning. Please indicate if you have a preference for full or half day. There may be opportunities for support staff to sit in on some of the conference sessions in quiet periods but this will be based on the requirements on the day.
Support staff session times are as follows:
Morning only: Start 08:00 – End 14:00 (six hours)
All day: Start 08:00 – End 17:00 (nine hours)

- Assisting delegates who have additional needs.
- Other tasks that may be required.
We are looking for people who are friendly and approachable, particularly people who already have events experience.
Please note, constant communication will be essential throughout the event. Therefore, this role will require you to have a fully charged smartphone on the day with Whatsapp installed and ready to use.
Applications close at 9am on Monday 23 September. We will then contact a number of applicants to have a short phone interview on Thursday 26 September and will notify the final selected applicants by Thursday 3 October.
