We are looking for an Events Assistant, on a fixed-term contract, starting in early December 2023 and finishing 30th April 2024, to provide event support in the lead up to LLHM 2024 on Sunday 7 April. This role will provide an excellent opportunity to gain experience both in the events and charity sector.
The main purpose of this role is to support the Tommy’s team of ~2,000 runners in the London Landmarks Half Marathon, regularly speaking to the runners on the phone and via email, ensuring they are accurately registered for the event, that they receive an exceptional supporter journey and assist in delivering the ambitious team fundraising target of over £1,000,000.
We are not necessarily looking for past experience in a similar role but for transferable skills and personal attributes to deliver excellent customer service, with a passion for the LLHM event and Tommy’s cause. You will be a good all-rounder with excellent administration and communication skills and happy not to be bound or limited by responsibilities set out in this job description. We are a small team delivering the event therefore everyone in the team will be required to be flexible to turn their hand to whatever is needed to be done to deliver a successful event.
