Eton College is a charity for the advancement of education. At its heart sits an independent boys’ boarding school which leads a dynamic range of educational activities and an expanding network of educational partnerships. Eton’s willingness to innovate and evolve is a tradition which has seen the school thrive for almost six centuries. Today it is a very modern educational charity with a progressive and increasingly diverse community.
The Communications, Engagement and Development teams at Eton College are in a period of exciting and sector leading transition, and in our next phase of expansion, we seek an experienced and highly talented Events and Engagement professional to join the group. The successful applicant will possess well-honed events management and stewardship skills with the potential to become a leader in their field. Prior schools experience is not essential.
This is an exciting opportunity to develop and implement an outstanding Events and Engagement programme to help grow support for, and engagement with, the College and its purposes. Reporting to the Director of Communications, Engagement and Development, the Events and Engagement Officer will continue to professionalise and optimise the College’s events for its stakeholders. This will involve the development and delivery of a programme which could include high profile national conferences for teachers, stewardship programmes for current and potential donors and tailor-made events for Old Etonians. The successful candidate must bring both strategic and tactical approaches, combining the ability to think ahead and assess long-term implications with the willingness to personally deliver on the detail. They will be a self-starter with initiative, confidence, drive, and flexibility.
