37 hours per week, fixed term until 31st July 2021
Cheltenham Borough Council
Closing date: 27 February 2019
Marketing Cheltenham was launched as a new initiative by Cheltenham Borough Council in collaboration with Cheltenham BID and other major town partners in November 2017. As part of our place making and growth agenda we have ambitious plans to raise the profile of Cheltenham as a great place to visit, work, invest and study.
As part of this ambition we are looking for a creative, energetic Events Manager to lead in creating exciting events as well as managing third parties to deliver events and experiences, as part of the visitor growth strategy for Cheltenham. This role will be a crucial event management role for Cheltenham Borough Council and Cheltenham BID, developing an events strategy, acting as a coordinator between Council departments and external suppliers, ensuring events and experiences in the town are reflective of the Cheltenham brand and delivering the requirements of the council’s Safety and Advisory Group.
This role has a wide remit and a limited budget, so it is essential that the person responsible is creative, diligent and resourceful with excellent project management skills.
The Marketing Cheltenham team will work between Cheltenham BID and the council’s Municipal Offices, together with agile/mobile working due to the nature of the role. The post holder will be expected to forge strong links with the council’s Communications Team. This is a jointly funded role with Cheltenham BID and is initially fixed term to the end of the current BID term; however, subject to success, it is envisaged there will be an ongoing need for the role.
If you would like to have an informal chat about the post, please contact Kevan Blackadder on 01242 571123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
