About the role
This role will take a lead on coordinating and organising our increasingly busy and complex programmes across the organisation, with a particular focus on our groundbreaking Skills for Growth programme and our Generator Union network.
From assisting with programming and producing engaging and exciting events, to handling administration and reporting requirements to ensure our funders are happy, this role will play a key part in ensuring our programmes and events run smoothly, meet our targets and ensure our participants get the most from the programmes.

You’ll be impeccably organised with a proven track record in event production and administration. You’ll be a people person who thrives off building relationships and sparking conversations.
You will have a keen eye for detail and know exactly what is needed to make a networking event, seminar, workshop, conference or session a success.
You will be an excellent networker, with a wide ranging contact list to draw on, from venue relationships to business contacts.
Experience of ticketing platforms like Eventbrite and experience of events marketing would be a huge plus.
