Irish Georgian Society London – Seeking Voluntary Events Co-ordinator

Irish Georgian Society London

The vision of the Irish Georgian Society is to conserve, protect and foster an interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts (from all periods).

The London branch is looking for an enthusiastic volunteer who would be pleased to take over the Events Co-ordinator role.

We arrange numerous (c.16-20) events each year, including lectures, walking tours, historic houses visits, dinners, parties and weekend visits. We learn about historic buildings/ places and host social events in historic settings. Most importantly, we aim to have fun with like-mind people.

In addition, any money raised from these events goes towards grant aiding conservation works of historic buildings in Ireland.

Events Co-ordinator

The main role of the events co-ordinator is to oversee the events for the year, liaise and manage event organisers as necessary, control the Eventbrite system, and organise a small number of events a year.

We are looking for someone who is:

  • Really organised
  • Very efficient
  • and somewhat tech savvy

The time required for the job varies through the year, ranging from a handful of emails during the week to more concentrated time around the period of the events listing production (which takes a few days). It also requires attendance at 4 committee meetings a year, which take place on weekday evenings.

Please see a detailed outline of the responsibilities in the accompanying attachment.

Start Date: January 2020.

If you are interested, please send a paragraph describing your interest in the role and how you would suit the position, which should ideally be supported by a CV.
