Hampton Court Palace
Temporary contract - 11 months
Are you a fabulous organiser who loves public events? We need an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our Learning & Engagement department to assist in the planning, organisation and delivery of large-scale family events across our palaces.
Here at Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), we help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
HRP are reaching out to new audiences through fresh programming, big national events, and increased digital interaction; we are deepening our relationships with current and repeat users and broadening the diversity of our audiences overall; innovation and creativity, strategic partnerships and an audience-focus are central to our approach.
Our aim is to establish HRP as a go-to destination for engaging, participatory and enjoyable large-scale learning events and festivals, predominantly aimed at a family audience. In this role you will support the Events and Partnerships team to deliver a series of events to realise the aim and achieve the overall Learning strategy to increase the reach and impact of HRP’s learning and engagement programme.
This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to build their experience of working within events - preferably with an understanding of learning, arts, culture or heritage environment. You’ll be liaising with internal and external contractors, organising resources and carrying out events administration.
To be successful you will have a willingness to learn, strong attention to detail and excellent communication skills. You will be a real team player with, of course, a willingness to work unsociable hours during events and a flexible attitude towards working hours and travel.
This is an exciting opportunity to work with a dedicated and energetic team to extend the reach of the wonderful palaces in our care to a wider audience.
Closing date: 3rd December 2017
Interviews: 12th and 13th December 2017
