Events Manager job vacancy

We are looking to recruit an Events Manager to manage our varied programme of conferences and events. The Events Manager will be responsible for the development, organisation, and marketing of the Chartered Institute’s programme of internal and external events and will work with senior staff to develop and improve these.

The Chartered Institute for Archaeologists is the leading professional institute representing archaeologist in the UK and overseas. We champion professionalism in archaeology, setting and monitoring professional standards and promoting best practice. We have just over 3800 individual members and 80 organisations on our register. We received our Royal Charter in 2014 and since then have seen a growth in our membership and profile. We are therefore keen to develop our events programme to support our aims and to maximise on the opportunities open to us.

You will have had previous experience of successfully running and developing a variety of small and large scale professional events, with a proven track record of maintaining a good working relationship with clients, delegates and colleagues. Ideally you will have had experience of working with professional institutes and with volunteers and have membership of a relevant professional body.

To apply, please send us a cover letter explaining your experience and how you meet the job description and person specification, along with a copy of your CV to lianne.birney [at]

Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 20 August. Interviews are expected to take place in the week commencing 3 September.
