The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) is seeking to recruit an Events Manager reporting to the Head of Alumni Relations & Events within the Directorate of External Relations. The post is based at our Hertfordshire Campus near Potters Bar. Some travel to our London campus in Camden will be required and also occasionally to event venues.

The ideal candidate will have a strong grounding in all aspects of events administration and management ideally with experience in the HE or FE sector. You will be joining a small, proactive team and you will be responsible for planning, coordinating and delivering various key events hosted by the RVC such as our annual graduation ceremonies, dinners and formal gatherings, our attendance at corporate events (such as London Vet Show), the opening of new facilities and inaugural lectures, reunions and open days. You will provide a central support, booking and advisory function for all other RVC events – these are many and varied and run by staff and students. You will advise and support all bookings and ensure events follow the relevant process and policy. You will manage events budgets and casual events staff and ensure excellent service delivery at all times.

Events and major meetings and are a key part of RVC life, often bringing together colleagues from different parts of the organisation and offering a window from the outside world into the RVC. We are looking for a team player who can prioritise work to deadlines and maintain high levels of professionalism (at times under pressure) along with delivering high levels of customer service. You will need excellent communication skills as well as a hands-on approach with a ‘people-focused’ outlook and a positive, enthusiastic mindset.  We are a small team and so the role-holder will need to be willing and able to undertake all aspects of events management, administration and delivery. There is, on occasion, the need to work evenings and weekends.
