Events Assistant Level 3 Apprenticeship

Salary: £21,900

As an Apprentice Events Assistant, we’ll take your raw talent and help build on your skills and passion so that – together – we’ll make a real difference to how our events evolve and succeed.

You’ll be involved in a wide variety of activities including:

  • Delivering public programming events, working closely with event generators and programmers, liaising with speakers and participants on all aspects of planning and logistics, including schedules, AV requirements, travel and accommodation.
  • You’ll also maintain the events calendar, all scheduling tools and department records
  • Support the Event Team to gather, sort and check event information in line with publishing deadlines
  • Actively support the co-ordination of events and front-of-house delivery with internal partners, in particular Estates and IT Services, to ensure that events run smoothly on the day.
  • Support the Venue Services Manager with regard to all public spaces outside the reading rooms, including health & safety, licensing, equipment provision, event fit-out, and general appearance.
  • Be proficient in all Venue Management systems including: the digital display screens; event ticketing; and AV

(This role includes direct support of events and activities, which will require frequent but irregular working outside normal office hours)

About you:

We are looking for someone to support the creation and delivery of consistently high quality event experiences to all our audiences so you’ll need an enthusiastic and positive approach to providing a swift and accurate service.

Essentially, you’ll need to have 5 GCSE's (including English and Maths). Beyond that, we’re looking for a good communicator who’s easy to get along with and likes to do things to the best of their ability. The nature of the work does however mean you need to be a logical problem-solver, good at working within deadlines and like juggling tasks. Bring us all this, along with a willingness to learn and a readiness to embrace new opportunities, and we’d love to hear from you.

Just a 10 minute walk from the Overground and Underground stations, and you can expect an excellent range of benefits. They include 22 days’ annual holiday rising to 25 days after 1 year (plus 10 ½ additional days of public and privilege holidays), pension, flexible working, discounted bookshop and software, free admission to Kew Gardens as well as many museums and galleries, bicycle loan and interest free annual season ticket loan. We also offer wellbeing resources (e.g. on-site therapists) and have an on-site gym, restaurant, shop and staff bar.
