We are seeking an Events Manager to join the busy Events team and lead on the delivery of numerous events.
Who are we?
The Royal Academy of Engineering is harnessing the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public. Together we’re working to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.
With a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive culture, we look to attract candidates from wide and different backgrounds who have a passion for the role engineering plays in society. Our aim is to make the Academy the best place to work for the staff we have and those we seek to attract.
Through our events, we convene and provide access to great networks in industry. This role will be crucial in providing end-to-end event management services in the delivery of the Academy’s events strategy, specifically the management of event logistics, programming, marketing and other operational logistics for the assigned in-person, online and hybrid events.
Who are we looking for?
We maintain a busy calendar of high-profile events, and you will help to make them happen as you oversee event logistics, drive marketing and administer some key projects.
We need a true self-starter with a strong track record in event management, a good awareness of event marketing practices, and proven ability to multitask. Naturally, you will be exceptionally organised and methodical, with meticulous attention to detail, and you will be passionate about taking on responsibility and making things happen. Tracking finances, negotiating with suppliers and managing multiple work streams should be second nature to you, and you will combine innate commercial acumen with the highest standards of creativity. In short, you will bring everything it takes to make every event a success – and to take us to the next level.
This role entails flexibility in out-of-hours working in order to support certain events. Time off in lieu (TOIL) will be allocated for an event on case-by-case basis.
Why work for the Royal Academy of Engineering?
This is the perfect time to join us. The value we bring as experts in our field and change agents is highly recognised and makes the Academy a motivating place to be. Our work today builds on a long, proud history with a focused and ambitious future that we’d love you to be part of.
The Academy offers a fantastic package of additional benefits, including:
- BUPA cash plan
- Private medical insurance
- Subsidised restaurants
- Regular social activities
- Independent financial advice
- Generous holiday allowance
- Non-contributory pension scheme
- Health and wellbeing programmes
- Wellbeing days and office-wide Christmas leave
- Significant investment into your personal and professional development
Our light, spacious offices are based in a fantastic location in central London with views over St James’s Park and close to the West End. We operate hybrid, flexible working practices with a baseline 2 days a week in the office.
