This is an exciting opportunity for an Events and Challenge Assistant to join our small and dynamic team delivering a range of special events and bespoke challenges for a national disability charity.
What does the role involve?
The Events and Challenge team manage a diverse programme of events to raise funds, raise awareness and support the work of Back Up. From our biggest annual fundraiser, The City Dinner, to our #NoLimits cycling event, you will have the opportunity to further your experience working on a wide range of both special and challenge events.
You will provide administrative support to the team and work closely with the Manager and Coordinator to plan and deliver events. You will have an appetite for working in a fast-paced environment, be extremely organised and able to work on a number of different events at one time.
It is a really exciting time to join the team, with a busy calendar of events planned for later this year as well as further development of some of our new virtual events.
Is Back Up a good place to work?
Back Up has a great culture and is in the Third Sector Magazine's top ten Best Charities to Work For in 2020. There are no silos - something reinforced by the charity's size, a one-team ethos and socialising together. Back Up runs anonymous staff morale surveys and we consistently score well above the sector average on every question.
Colleagues are professional, approachable, supportive and warm. You will work in a successful team at a leading charity with an international reputation in its field, working very close to the cause. Fun is one of our core values and it comes through in our work. There are sometimes friendly dogs in the office and a cake or two to enjoy!
