About the Role
As our Member Services and Events Coordinator, you will be the main point of contact for our members in the Middle East and North Africa and provide excellent service, support and advice at a local level. You will be a conduit for corporate information to the Local Hub Committee and ensure the goals and objectives of the Institute are delivered. The Member Services and Events Coordinator will also organise and publish a programme of local events to include networking, CPD, new member and upgrade workshops.
You’ll be supporting seven hubs; Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Doha, Muscat and Cairo, and share your responsibility with the other Member Services & Events Coordinator.
What we’re looking for…
We’re looking for a highly organised individual who has demonstrable administration and digital marketing experience. With good secondary level education and excellent copywriting skills, you will have experience of organising and reviewing successful events and have a genuine passion for networking and building strong mutually beneficial relationships.
Capable of communicating effectively and confidently at all levels, you will have the ability to provide the highest possible level of customer service and be able to accurately take minutes. Strong IT skills including Microsoft Office, Databases and social media are prerequisite, as is the ability to learn new in-house systems quickly. CRM experience is desirable, however not essential.
A relevant professional qualification would be beneficial; however, this is by no means essential.
