About the Role
As our Member Services and Events Coordinator, you will be the main point of contact for our members across Oceania and provide excellent service, support and advice at a local level. You will support the Regional Manager to execute membership elements of the Oceania Regional Strategic Plan. 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 plus liaising with local colleges and universities.
What we’re looking for…
We’re looking for a highly organised individual who has demonstrable administration experience. With excellent copywriting skills, you will have experience of organising and reviewing successful events, delivering presentations 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 and social media are prerequisite, as is the ability to learn new in-house systems quickly.
Although this role is home based, you will need to be willing to travel and work flexible hours to meet the organisations’ needs. A relevant professional qualification would be beneficial; however, this is by no means essential.
