Application for Marketing Events Executive

Full time

circa £18-£23k per annum (dependent on experience)

International Centre for Life, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Full time, 1 year fixed term

We are looking for an experienced and dynamic events professional to join the Marketing and Communications team at Life. You will have a good understanding of event planning and operations and, as part of a small team, you will be able to generate (and put into action) imaginative ideas and initiatives to promote Life to its audiences.

The role will involve planning and executing events to support marketing and communications (including photo/film shoots, PR stunts and exhibition launch events) and a new programme of special events aimed specifically at adult audiences, which will include evening lectures, debates and adult late events in Life Science Centre.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in a similar events planning role and have strong photography skills, as well as an ability to edit images and video footage and the knowledge to livestream events to a high quality.

You will be expected to attend special events, which will usually be held in evenings, so flexibility with working hours is required. Furthermore, in order to fully understand audiences and marketing challenges, the successful candidate will regularly spend time in the science centre during normal opening hours (including a few weekend days per year).

Please note that the successful applicant will be subject to a DBS check. Details of our DBS policy are available on request.
