Events Officer

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 6. The salary range will be £29,089 - £34,090 per annum , inclusive of London Allowance.

UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. In September 2016 UCL launched ‘It’s All Academic’, our bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus ( ). It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions.

From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals, who work together to achieve remarkable things with a global impact. We would love for you to be part of this exciting journey and our success.

This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As Events Officer, you will be involved in creating engaging, impactful events that showcase the far-reaching power of philanthropic giving to UCL and keep alumni, supporters, advocates and friends excited and engaged.

This is a great opportunity for a passionate events professional to support the development and delivery of a varied portfolio of fundraising, cultivation, stewardship and alumni events. Working with a range of partners within the team, across wider UCL and beyond you will deliver memorable events from initiation to completion, and post-event evaluation.

You will be extremely organised, able to balance competing deadlines in a fast-paced and rewarding environment, familiar with best practice events coordination, and have acute attention to detail. Most importantly, though, you will be passionate about delivering sector-leading events and working as part of a tight knit team to deliver an engagement programme that brings our audiences closer to the work of UCL.

Our people are our greatest asset, as such we provide an empowering, values-based environment where personal and professional growth is invested in. We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours. We value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic.  Expectations are high and we work hard, but the rewards are huge.

UCL is an outstanding place to work. We welcome people from all backgrounds and strive to create an environment where everyone can give of their best. Working with some of the greatest intellects in the world, you will also be entitled to a generous pension scheme and holiday allowance.
