The Institute for Government is currently inviting applications for an Events Officer, starting as soon as possible.

This role is an opportunity to work in a highly regarded think tank at the heart of Westminster. It is a great chance for an organised person with some events experience to join a friendly and busy team.

The events programme of the Institute is essential to our public profile; we have very high standards, and high profile speakers and audiences. As part of a three-person Events team within Communications and Marketing, you will assist in the creation and delivery of the key events programme. For our events, you will need to work closely with senior staff at the Institute, helping them to design and run their events. Our events are based on the work programmes and themes that the research staff and programme directors are working on.

The team manages all the logistics for a range of in-house public events, roundtables, workshops, seminars, conferences and debates. Our building has four rooms for meetings and events, and the events team also make these available for private hire. On average, there are three to eight events of different styles per week.

You will also work closely with our Communication and web team, caterers, IT and AV technicians, and security. For private hire of the rooms, you will need to work with the external clients, giving advice, and ensuring a high quality experience for them and their attendees.
