Reporting to the Senior Coordinator, Events and Information Systems, you will assist in the organisation of UK events, management of our database and website systems, coordinate ALPSP presence at exhibitions and other conferences and administer the supply and storage of publicity materials.
ALPSP staff are home-workers so you will be expected to work under minimal supervision, but in close liaison with other members of the team. This is a customer-facing role, therefore you will need exceptional communication skills combined with good time management and organisational skills. Experience of event/exhibition organisation is essential. Good computer skills are highly desirable and familiarity with database administration would be advantageous.
ALPSP UK events are primarily organised in and around the London area, so the ability to travel easily to London is essential. The ALPSP International Conference will also involve overnight stays.
The salary for this position is circa £25,000, pro rata, depending on experience.
