Events Officer – Maternity Cover (Part-time Contract)

The Development Office is looking for an efficient Events Officer to take up the role in its busy department for one year. The position is part-time, preferably Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but there is some flexibility by agreement.

The successful candidate will run our busy events programme, promote and manage each event with Old Members, and liaise with the catering and housekeeping departments, finance office and porters. Events range from regular reunion dinners for different year groups, to the annual Association Dinner or Garden Party, to regional events. It is expected that the Events Officer will attend the events in College, though not all the regional ones.

The Events Officer will also help with communications, updating the Raiser’s Edge database and offering general alumni relations support as needed. There is scope for the successful candidate to make a real impact on the events programme, and to introduce new ideas and improvements. This is a very friendly, busy team comprising the Development Director, the Deputy Director (part-time), the Development Officer, the Events Officer and the Office Administrator.

The Events Officer’s role is an interesting position suited to someone who enjoys working with people, can trouble-shoot on the spot, keeps a calm head and fits in well with the team. The Development Office looks after 5,000 Old Members of the College and has an outstanding record of fund raising and alumni relations.

Experience of working in events organisation, fund raising, or alumni relations roles preferred, together with a keen, positive attitude.

In return, you will receive a very competitive salary, excellent benefits and conditions of employment, including a pension scheme, generous holiday entitlement, car parking and use of College facilities.
