Do you have what it takes to organise events for rural communities?

The Plunkett Foundation has recently won a large contract to provide a new national advice line and a series of awareness raising events to inspire people in rural villages – helping them make even more of a difference in their communities. These will be advertised across the UK, and a national television programme is due to be aired during the summer that focuses on a range of rural community enterprise pilot projects.
With all this exciting activity going on, there’s never been a better time to join us. And if you have the skills and experience to take on one of the following roles, you could do just that. We are looking to recruit:

Events Team Manager £28 - £30k
2 x Junior Events Officer £21 - £23k

Our UK Events Team will be responsible for running 24 awareness raising events across the country in Autumn 2011 and Spring 2012 – as well as a national conference in Winter 2011/2012. This will involve everything from branding and marketing the overall direction of the events, to liaising with regional event administration staff. To take on either of these roles you’ll need to have experience of working with third sector organisations, social enterprises, and/or community groups. You’ll also need previous experience of assisting in the organisation of events, excellent organisational skills and plenty of drive and enthusiasm.

Full job descriptions can be found on our website at

 The closing date for applications is Wednesday 22nd June 2011, and  interviews will be held in the week beginning 27th June 2011.
