Events Assistants needed
Are you looking to take the first step in a career in the events industry? Looking to put what you are learning in your degree into practice?
Working Knowledge is a social enterprise that bridges the gap between education and the workplace though events which bring FE students and business experts together in a ‘Dragons’ Den’ experience. The events are fun and fast-paced.
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who want to gain experience assisting the management of events through the academic year. This opportunity will provide you with an excellent understanding of all elements of event management. You will be involved with assisting multiple events and supporting the events team during the event delivery.
We are looking for someone who loves organising. You must have excellent time management skills, be a team player, have great attention to detail and be confident communicating with everyone from 16 year old students to business experts. You must be willing to work long hours during the event delivery and be able to hit the ground running.
Here are a few examples of the types of tasks you will be involved in:
Administration tasks in preparation for the events, i.e. creating and preparing event materials.
Ensuring the events run smoothly i.e. meeting and greeting, ensuring the event spaces are ready, ensuring individuals are in the right place at the right time, taking guest registers, taking photos and filming parts of the events, ensuring the event facilitators have all the materials they need and the clients are happy!
The deadline to apply for this post is midday Friday 14th December.
This is an on-going post starting in the middle of January. Our events are held on a nationwide basis and therefore you would need to be prepared to travel and stay overnight sometimes.
Salary: paid per event day. To be discussed at application process
