Part time Event Coordinator

Salary £25,000 pa fte (pro rata for part time working, 24-28 hrs per week)

Do you thrive on organising and making things happen?

We need a motivated, capable event coordinator to work with our Event Manager to run events and activities which fit with our ambitions to connect people and nature in Surrey.

This year the requirement for events has grown rapidly, so we are looking for someone with organisation skills who will enjoy the challenge of helping other teams, creating new systems for the loan of event equipment and assisting the Event Manager with delivering a busy calendar of activities, including our Annual General Meeting, public events, large conservation tasks, dinners, breakfast talks and online events. The role will also focus on developing major donor and corporate partner events, establish a “walks and talks” programme to engage members, raise awareness and develop new income streams.

You will need to be able to organise and prioritise your time, demonstrate effective event organisation, use your initiative, stay calm and solve problems under pressure. A drive to deliver exceptional customer service is essential as well as the willingness to muck in when needed, even out of normal working hours.

Our offices are in Pirbright, Leatherhead and Wisley and our hybrid working policy aims to provide a good work/life balance which can incorporate partial home working. The salary offered to successful applicants will form part of a benefits package including: above minimum pension contributions, life assurance of 4 x salary, employee support scheme, 22+ days holiday, flexible/hybrid working policy.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities. We aim to offer an interview to all candidates that meet the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible.

Please apply using the Application Form available on our website or provide a full CV and explanatory covering letter, emailed to Sophie Coad, Event Manager, by 5pm Monday 6th May 2024. Interviews 15th May. Full job profile on website.

Closing Date: 06/05/2024  Location: Surrey
