Join our successful events team at Marie Curie

Our Events Assistant roles will give you a wealth of experience in all aspects of event delivery. You’ll be working as part of our Event Delivery team supporting our Event Managers to successfully deliver our busy portfolio of events throughout the year, including our UK Trek, marathons, swims and cycles and other sporting events. You’ll be based from our London office and get to travel the length and breadth of the country, delivering events to an exemplary standard to ensure that every person taking part has a fantastic experience with Marie Curie.

You will need to have excellent organisational skills and the ability to multi-task, as well as having good interpersonal skills and a confident “can-do” attitude. You’ll gain experience in logistics and planning as well as health and safety and risk management. You’ll help to recruit and work alongside our fantastic volunteers, and fundraising staff, across the UK to ensure we deliver the best event possible for our amazing supporters.

This role will include weekend working and overnight stays through the event season. The role can be physically demanding on event days but is truly rewarding as you will be supporting 1000’s of people raising money for Marie Curie. Driving to and from events using our event cars will be required, so a diving licence is essential.

Marie Curie is a UK charity dedicated to the care of people with terminal cancer and other illnesses. We have recently developed a new strategic plan, with the overall vision of ensuring a better life for people and their families living with a terminal illness, which means we are entering an exciting time with a new direction and focus.

Closing Date: 29th June 2018
