We are looking for a talented, hands-on Events Manager to lead our established team of events experts.

In order to continue the momentum we’ve seen in recent years we know that engagement with our passionate scientists and supporters is key. With this in mind, we are looking for a talented, hands-on Events Manager to lead our established team of events experts.

As the organisation has grown over the past 5 years, so has the range and type of events and the last year has prompted a further shift to online digital delivery, or hybrid to maximise potential audience engagement. The Manager and wider Events team are also responsible for the planning and delivery of the organisations Research Conference, which brings together researchers from all over the world to share knowledge and connections to further our cause.

The role is fast paced and no two days are the same providing the opportunity for someone to stretch their existing skillset, or for an established Events professional to experience a different setting.
