Programme Co-ordinator Part-time (27hrs P/week + overtime)

Are you passionate about public events and keen to apply your excellent interpersonal and administrative skills to ensuring the smooth running of the School of Life’s busy programme? Then we might just have the role for you.

Our events programme aims to develop emotional intelligence through the help of culture and the humanities, and as part of our Programme team, our two part-time Programme Coordinators look after the day to day running of our Bloomsbury Classroom and support the Programme Producer on a range of exciting major events at off-site venues for up to a thousand guests at a time.

With a focus on supporting one-off events including our one day intensives, and evening special events you would manage production of bespoke teaching materials, communicate with participants before during and after events, and support the upload of new events to our website. Leading a team of Programme Hosts at these major events will require you to demonstrate your excellent customer service skills and ability to think on your feet.

As part of a small team this post is ideal for someone looking to gain a breadth of experience across a busy cultural events environment.
