Events Manager
The Society of Authors

Job Description

The Society of Authors is a trade union for all types of writers, illustrators, broadcasters and literary translators. We're looking for an experienced Events Manager to run our busy events calendar. This is a fantastic opportunity to join us at an exciting time in our growth and development. 

You'll be responsible for delivering events ranging from AGMs, conferences and seminars, to networking parties, talks and practical workshops, and you'll project manage our annual Authors’ Awards and Summer Party, working closely with our Prizes department. 

You’ll be the point of contact and marketing support for our local groups, which are run by our member-volunteers and you'll work closely with our outreach team to develop our events in the regions.

The cherry on the cake? We’re in the process of moving premises to Bloomsbury, so you’ll also have a say in the design and use of our new, larger events space!

This post requires some work outside of normal office hours, usually evenings. We give time off in lieu. You will be based at our offices - currently in South Kensington. We will consider flexible and some home-based working on request.

If you’re an experienced Events Manager and you're interested in creating and managing a busy calendar of events for our 10,000+ members, we look forward to hearing from you. 

Interviews will be carried out on Tuesday 6 March.

The Society of Authors is an equal opportunities employer.
