Events Coordinator (Maternity Cover)

Step by Step passionately believe in supporting young people who are going through hard times. Our unique step by step approach, providing accommodation, personal development opportunities, and specialist support services, identifies and fulfils aspirations.

We currently work with over 5,300 young people aged 11 - 25 every year. Our next five-year strategy is ambitious and sets out our plans to double the number this number as 1 in 100 young people are now expected to experience homelessness.

Our exciting opportunity

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, highly-motivated person to join our busy Fundraising Team as our Events Coordinator.

As a dynamic charity we plan, manage and deliver a growing number of supporter events throughout the year. These provide essential core income to support our work with vulnerable young people. They are also a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with and increase our brand awareness amongst new and existing supporters throughout the south east.

You will be responsible for planning and delivering our annual calendar of events, as well as creatively designing and implementing new events either in new areas or to target new groups of supporters.

You will manage the income and expenditure budgets for these events, be involved in the marketing and promotion of them as well as delivering them on the day. As such, some evening and weekend work will be a requirement of this role.

What we would like from you

The main attributes that you will need to succeed in this role are a 'can-do attitude', high energy and the drive to go the extra mile to deliver a fantastic event and supporter experience.

You will need a keen eye for detail, strong organisational skills as well as needing to be able to problem solve quickly.

We are looking for the successful candidate to have previous experience in events, whether in the charity sector or other transferable environment.

This is a temporary post providing cover for maternity leave possibly until October 2018. The post will cease two weeks after the substantive post holder returns.
