Projects and Events Officer
Hours: Full-time (37.5 hours/week) until end of December 2014 with a strong possibility of extension
Salary: £27,900 (per annum)
The Centre for Labour and Social Studies (CLASS) is a growing thinktank established in 2012 to act as a centre for left debate and discussion. Originating in the labour movement, Class works with a broad coalition of supporters, trade unions, academics and experts to develop and advance alternative policies for today.
The Projects and Events Officer will be an integral part of our small busy team, and will be responsible for coordinating and delivering a relevant national programme of events culminating in our annual national conference in November. CLASS are looking for an experienced and highly organised individual with strong policy and political sense and an ability to communicate confidently with a range of high-profile individuals.
- Develop and deliver a relevant and engaging programme of events across the country
- Deal with all event logistics prior and on the day to ensure smooth running.
- Act as main contact for all speakers, delegates and suppliers
- Provide general administrative support and project management on additional projects
This role would suit someone with experience of high-level event organisation and the ability to coordinate and deliver successful, meticulously planned events. We are looking for someone with a keen interest in politics, UK public policy and the labour movement who can demonstrate a commitment to the values of CLASS. The ideal candidate will be someone who is able to work well under pressure with minimal supervision, prioritise a busy workload and proactively develop and deliver projects to tight deadlines. We’re a small, busy team so we’re looking for a team-player who’s happy to get stuck in and hit the ground running.
