Our client has a vision of land and seas rich in wildlife and people close to nature. They believe that nature is valuable in its own right, that everyone should have the chance to experience the joy of wildlife and that we are part of nature, wholly dependent upon it.
This is a time of immense change, when the laws protecting the environment and wildlife are at risk. People across society are suffering more than ever from lack of access to, and connection with nature. People spend significantly less time in nature than they did a generation ago, and encounter wildlife less often.
Our client is a grassroots movement of 850,000 members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK. They have a vision of land and seas rich in wildlife with people close to nature.
They are looking for a confident and experienced events professional to proactively organise, plan and run their exciting programme of national virtual and non-virtual events. You will be working closely with the Head of Communications and the Head of Operations to deliver events with impact. You will be part of a tight and dedicated central team, with a modest budget but an unmatched depth and breadth of human resources to draw on across the organisation. 

Candidates must have previous experience of delivering successful public-facing events to an agreed budget and tight deadline. You should also have experience of managing relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders and/or partners and of using digital platforms to deliver events and for marketing purposes.

Our client is looking for an organised and driven character who can thrive in a grassroots movement.  They need a team-worker, someone who values and respects each person’s contribution, experience and knowledge.  They want someone who will work collaboratively and strategically to deliver agreed priorities, and with an analytical approach to evaluating the results.
They value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst they are passionate in promoting their aims, they are not judgemental, and they are inclusive.
Our client wants their people to be as diverse as nature, so they particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within their sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.  They are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities. 
As a Disability Confident employer, they are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustments to make the recruitment process more accessible.  
Closing Date: Wednesday 10th February
First Interviews:  22nd / 23rd February
