We are looking for someone keen to start a career in public programming, who will undertake a variety of administrative duties for the public programmes team and support with the delivery of a wide range of engaging and thought-provoking public events. A key part of the role is to oversee the administration of events, including liaison with the marketing and content teams and other internal stakeholders, liaison with external partners, managing our online bookings, booking travel for speakers and minuting meetings, as well as evaluation of our overall public programmes. You’ll be present for our key events, usually at 66 Portland Place but occasionally elsewhere, helping ensure all runs smoothly.
