A membership organisation for science professionals is hiring for a Senior Events Engagement Officer who will project manage the organisation's flagship exhibition event in Summer 2022 within the public engagement programme.

As the Senior Events Engagement Officer, you will oversee all elements of the exhibition, working with other members of the team and from across the organisation to deliver exhibits, a supporting events programme, and a concurrent digital version.

You will develop detailed project and stakeholder stewardship plans and lead the project group to deliver the Exhibition. You will be the first point of contact for key stakeholder groups including exhibitors and volunteers. You will also provide day-to-day management of the budget, as well as line management of an assistant role which supports programmes across the entire Public Engagement team.

You will have the following skills and experience:
* Demonstrable experience of delivering large scale events, and solid experience of matrix project management in an events or public engagement role.
* Excellent knowledge of event operations and accompanying systems and procedures, including health and safety best practice and risk management.
* Experience of delivering accessible digital events and content for the public.
* Strong working knowledge of producing marketing and promotions plans that engage target audiences, and a clear understanding of the design, print, advertising and press processes involved in this process.
* Experience of stakeholder management and stewardship.
