Digital and Events Senior Co-ordinator
Do you have hands-on experience of organising face-to-face and online events that make a real impact? And are you a great communicator with a flair for digital who enjoys working as part of a small team?
Retina UK is a national sight loss charity and we’re recruiting a dynamic Digital and Events Senior Co-ordinator to be responsible for the co-ordination, admin, logistics, and communications support for our annual medical, professional and community conferences and webinars.
You’ll need to be super organised as this will include venue logistics, catering, registration, correspondence with delegates and speakers, maintaining the databases and relevant webpages. You’ll also create and deliver the marketing plan for these events.
When you’re not busy organising events, you’ll work with colleagues across the charity to create engaging content, co-ordinate our social media channels, update our website and send regular e-bulletins.
This is a new and varied role in our growing charity. Join us and use your energy, ideas and enthusiasm to make a positive change for people affected by inherited sight loss.
The closing date is Wednesday, 13 December. We do reserve the right to close this advertisement early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications.
This role can be office based or hybrid, however regular attendance at our Buckingham office will be required. We offer a generous annual leave entitlement, company pension, a confidential employee assistance programme, eye testing, current statutory leave provisions (ie dependant care) and flexible working.
