Job Description

On behalf of Nordoff Robbins - the largest charitable provider of music therapy services in the UK - Handle Recruitment is looking for a confident, enthusiastic, energetic and highly professional Events Manager! A true all-rounder with a detail-orientated approach and the experience behind them to be able to successfully deliver a variety of high profile events; as well as play a key role in the strategic development of the Nordoff Robbins events programme.

Working as part of the Fundraising team, this is an exciting and unique opportunity for someone to take full event management responsibility for The O2 Silver Clef Awards. The charity's flagship event recognises and celebrates the outstanding talent of the winning artists who through their music have touched the lives of many thousands of people - and this year raised an incredible £660,000.

Based out of the newly refurbished London Headquarters in Kentish Town, designed from the ground up to focus on music therapy and featuring beautiful modern music rooms, this is a truly inspiring work space which would really suit someone looking to work in a non-traditional charity environment.

Candidates must have previous experience organising high profile events such as galas, balls and dinners. The ability to build solid relationships is also very important, along with good negotiation skills and exposure to working with committees. This person will also directly line manage one Events Assistant, so previous line management experience is essential.

It is also vital that the post holder has empathy for the work Nordoff Robbins does; and is motivated by their cause, which is to transform lives through music.

Depending on preference, the hours are either 09:00-17:00, 9:30-17:30 or 10:00-18:00.

If your experience matches the requirements above and you would like to join Nordoff Robbins in the position of Events Manager, please contact Alice Scott at Handle Recruitment immediately.
