The Events Officer is a key role within the Marketing and Communications team which will see you use your initiative and really go that extra mile when planning and delivering the organisation's corporate internal events, ensuring to encourage a positive culture and high engagement across the company. These events can be anything from the annual road shows to sports days and Christmas parties.
Reporting to the Senior Internal Communications Officer, you will own all aspects of the planning and delivery of each event ensuring you stay within budget and deliver on time whilst building on the success of previous events. Organising and executing full communications plans through a range of different internal channels for each event is also crucial to this role.

We are looking for a well organised, structured and driven individual who has a good track record of working in events. You must have strong writing skills as well as good communications skills and be able to think outside the box and come with some fresh new ideas.
We believe that an organisation's best asset is its people, and as such we want everyone to feel that they can make a difference. We want to unlock the potential in all Orbit employees and maximise their satisfaction in the job. We have a corporate training programme, opportunities for professional development and our staff tell us we are a great organisation to work for. We offer an excellent benefits package, including private medical insurance, discounted dental insurance and gym membership, 27 days holiday entitlement and pension scheme.
