About you

You're an experienced, confident and articulate events manager, looking for a fantastic opportunity to develop a successful special events programme.

We're delivering some of the most exciting special events in the UK and we are seeking a talented and enthusiastic person to join us.

Our programme of events has grown rapidly over the past few years. It's focused on delivering high quality and high profile fundraising and cultivation events, for a philanthropic and corporate audience. The programme includes both small and large scale events, with a previous event raising £1 million net. We've worked at venues such as the Southbank Centre and St Paul’s Cathedral.

We work with event committees, celebrity supporters and a highly committed Appeal Board to deliver events, which brings together high-profile, engaged and well-connected people passionate about the cause and our ambitious plans for the future.

We offer 35 days annual leave (including bank holidays), travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.

We're in the middle of an exciting, transformational period as we embark on our 5 year strategy. As part of this we'll be moving from our current National Centre in Cricklewood, North West london to a different location in London. We're currently defining where and what type of accommodation this will be, and we really want our staff to be involved in that decision.
