Culture and Activation

We’re helping to unlock the creative spirit of the Royal Docks. You’ll collaborate with the creative organisations that call the Royal Docks home to launch a world-class programme of events and activation, as well as attracting new organisations to join us. You’ll inspire our communities and visitors to make the most of the area’s assets — 12 miles of waterfront, diverse landscape, global connections — and help us make the Royal Docks an attractive place to visit and stay.

The opportunity

You’ll contribute to an outstanding events programme that helps to position the Royal Docks as a unique cultural and commercial destination. Working closely with the Events Manager you will manage and co-ordinate your own portfolio of events, overseeing all aspects of delivery from planning and development to liaising with relevant licensing authorities, agencies and stakeholders. You’ll also assist in the management of larger, more complex events and campaigns and provide administrative support for activities such as procurement, business planning and budgeting.

The person

This is an opportunity to build on your event management experience and learn more about the planning, delivery and evaluation of public events, campaigns and activations on a large scale. Experience of using IT systems to aid project management is essential and you’ll be used to working in partnership with a wide range of different stakeholders, preferably in a complex, political environment. Possession of ISOH or a similar health and safety qualification would be an advantage.
