Children in Wales
Closing Date: 15 April 2024

Summary:

This role is to develop, manage and implement an events calendar for Children in Wales, which delivers engaging events for our members, as well as supporting the delivery of events for our young volunteers.

About Us:

Children in Wales is the national umbrella body for organisations and individuals who work with children, young people and their families in Wales.  We work closely with Welsh Government and others in Wales to ensure that children’s rights are at the forefront of policy and decision making.  To do this we focus on ensuring that children and young people in Wales have a voice, we fight for sustainable and equitable services, advocate for policy changes in Wales and connect and represent the work being undertaken by our membership.

Our membership includes individuals and organisations from the voluntary, statutory and professional sectors. We also work directly with children and young people on a number of projects and have recently started a dedicated membership for our younger audience.

Job Role:

You will work within the Communications and Membership Team and work closely with colleagues across the organisation, including our Young Wales and Training departments to coordinate and organise a variety of events.

You will help us to develop a series of new events to bring our members together, as well as overseeing the delivery of existing core events such as the Young Wales Annual Festival and our AGM. There will also be a role in scheduled events such as in-person and online training, and supporting the development of a presence at national events that link to our strategic objectives and mission.

You will work closely with colleagues across the organisation, as well as with external suppliers and partners, providing administrative assistance and taking specific responsibility for the smooth running and successful delivery of our events.

This role requires the ability to manage budgets, logistics and arrangements to ensure the smooth and professional execution of the events programme throughout the year. The ability to be flexible around events, to be present at them and to be available immediately following the events for any post-event activity (e.g. debriefing, liaison with the venue about collection of goods), is crucial and we operate a time-off-in-lieu system to enable any overtime to be claimed back at a later date.
