c£25,000 Plus Benefits

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. We are now looking for an Events Co-ordinator to help deliver our Lifeboat Station Ceremonies events as part of our Event Logistics Team.

If you have a positive, enthusiastic approach and experience of delivering events, this is a superb opportunity to facilitate the success of one of the nation’s most recognisable charities.

As an Events Co-ordinator, you will plan and deliver the individual events that make up the RNLI’s Station Ceremony Events programme. These events represent significant moments within both our volunteer communities and donor stewardship.

This is very much a hands-on role, so we are looking for someone that is equally adept at loading and transporting equipment to an event as they are at managing the admin and planning within the office.

As RNLI events can be based anywhere in the UK or Republic of Ireland, we are looking for an independent individual that is happy to travel extensively for work.

Interested? To be considered, you’ll need:

- Previous experience of delivering events
- Experience of keeping people safe through the implementation of risk assessments, event safety plans and briefings
- An Event Management qualification (or equivalent experience)
- A full, valid driving licence

As an Events Co-ordinator, you’ll have excellent networking, interpersonal and communications skills. Adaptable and flexible, you’ll also have a highly organised approach and outstanding time-management abilities.

Experience of working with multiple stakeholders would be beneficial.

The closing date for applications is 14th May 2017. Interviews are scheduled to be held on 30th May 2017.

Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
