Stewardship Events Lead

  • £37332 - £42099 per annum
  • London
  • Permanent

For over 500 years, Guy's and St Thomas' Foundation have been a constant in London's ever-changing landscape, at the leading edge of health. It is located in the heart of a global city that is vibrant and diverse, but that is also a place with stark health inequity.

As an independent organisation, Guy's and St Thomas' Foundation invests, partners, engages and influences to come at big health challenges from all angles. Through a family of forward-looking organisations (Impact on Urban Health, Guy's & St Thomas' Charity, Guy's Cancer Charity & Evelina London Children's Charity), they collaborate with communities, partners, and hospitals, and use assets to transform lives.

This is an opportunity to join the Guy's and St Thomas' Foundation team, at a time where they are bringing their fundraising function in-house. This change, along with further investment in the Fundraising function, is expected to see growth in income - this is therefore an exciting time to join the team, and to have significant impact across the breadth of work covered by the Foundation and it's family of linked charities.

As the Stewardship Events Lead, you will oversee the planning, project management, and delivery of a diverse portfolio of bespoke events across the organisation. These events, ranging from dinners and receptions to webinars and VIP tours, will serve to maximize donor cultivation and stewardship opportunities. With a keen attention to detail, you will prepare and maintain project plans for each event, ensuring that deadlines are met, and budgets are adhered to while providing regular updates to stakeholders.

Working closely with colleagues across fundraising, particularly with the High Value Fundraising teams, you will build strong working relationships to ensure the successful delivery of events. This entails leading project group meetings, responding to inquiries from various stakeholders, and advocating best practices in event management. Additionally, you will supervise staff and volunteers at events and maintain excellent relationships with internal colleagues and external stakeholders to facilitate effective collaboration throughout the event process.

To be considered, you will bring experience of delivering successful event/project management in a fundraising environment and will have planned and delivered a portfolio of events/projects to meet targets, within budget. You will also have a proven track record of building and maintaining relationships with a variety of stakeholders from diverse backgrounds
