Do you want to help deliver major events that tackle London’s biggest challenges?
Centre for London is a think tank and a charity focused on London’s critical challenges. In this role you will lead delivery of our flagship event, The London Conference, as well as developing and delivering other large and medium scale events. Working with the Events and Development teams, you will plan, deliver and fundraise for high-level conferences for London’s government, business and civic leaders, experts and citizens.
Through this opportunity you will gain a better understanding of how urban policy is created and shaped in a global city, how a successful events programme is run, as well as learning what is required to find and steward donors.
This role would best suit someone who already has a good level of experience in events management and is able to take on a high level of responsibility for projects. We will be ramping up our delivery of conferences in 2020-2021, so experience delivering large scale events is strongly desired. We don’t ask that you are an expert in London policy issues – though some understanding of would be helpful – but you will need to be able to learn quickly, think creatively and communicate effectively.
This is either a four day or full-time role; we are supportive of flexible working.
Full details of the role can be found in the job description. If you meet the criteria in the person specification and are excited about this opportunity, we’d love to hear from you. The successful candidate must have permission to work in the UK by the start of their employment.
