Job Summary

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented events organiser to join a passionate and creative Research and Engagement team at the School of Social Policy.

The Senior Research and Engagement Administrator - Events will support a lively, progressive calendar of hybrid events aimed at students, academics, and social policy professionals. A strong communicator with an eye for detail, you will be comfortable liaising with audiences on a local, national and international level, and as enthusiastic about an internal seminar as you are for a large-scale conference.

On an operational level, you’ll proactively monitor event processes and implement improvements.

The postholder will join a forward-thinking team keen to consolidate expertise. You’ll be offered a flexible hybrid working environment, working both onsite and from home. You’ll benefit from personal development training, as well as the opportunity to work on the beautiful Edgbaston campus with its sweeping Green Heart, ‘Old Joe’ clock tower, museums, art gallery and concert hall.

Main duties

  • Organising all School events from conception to completion, including seminars, workshops, meetings and conferences.
  • Developing high profile working relationships with key stakeholders using your own initiative, fielding enquiries and ensuring that appropriate information is disseminated.
  • Managing and maintaining the events repository and contacts database, in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  • Developing and sharing clear events management processes, incorporating Freedom of Speech protocols.
  • Capturing and communicating best practise approaches for events management across the School and College.
  • Managing the communications and marketing of events, including creating invitations and liaising with colleagues to ensure optimal coverage on all platforms, including the website and across social media.

Person Specification

  • Educated to A Level standard, or equivalent level 3 qualification such as a Level 3 NVQ, or level 3 national diploma or relevant work experience evidencing the skills and ability to undertake the role.
