The role: The conference and events manager will work on developing, coordinating and ensuring the timely and successful delivery of our events portfolio.
The At Work Partnership runs approximately 15 events a year, mainly in the London area, consisting of one-day workshops/conferences, three- and five-day qualification courses, in-house training and an annual two-day residential conference (in the Midlands).
Working as part of a small team, and reporting to one of the company directors, the role will involve liaising with content developer for each event, assisting in developing new courses/certificates, arranging venues, corresponding and liaising with speakers/tutors and students and, for the certificated courses, liaising with our academic partners and certifying bodies. The role also involves working on-site at events to ensure their smooth running.
To be considered for shortlisting, you will need experience of delivering high-quality training courses and events. You will need to demonstrate excellent customer-service and interpersonal skills, with experience of establishing and managing effective external working relationships. You will need demonstrable organisational skills as well as a strong attention to detail and ability to deliver to strict timetables.
Location: Barnet (plus on-site work at approximately 15 events a year, mainly in London). It is preferred, but not essential, for the successful candidate to be able to travel and stay overnight at 2–3 events a year, which take place outside of London. Although this is a part-time role, you will be required to attend our events, which can mean working longer paid hours on those particular days.
Part-time: 3–4 days per week
Salary: £32,000–£38,000 pro-rata
Holiday: 25 days pro-rata
