We are looking for an energetic and motivated individual to join the RNLI’s Event Logistics Team for up to 12 months.

The ideal candidate will have a wealth of event management experience and will be able to demonstrate their skills in client management; event planning and event delivery to produce great results in a time critical environment.

Your primary responsibility will be planning and delivering a portfolio of safe, compliant and customer focused events supporting our internal clients to achieve their aims; this can include but is not limited to exhibitions, fundraising events and volunteer recognition events.

In terms of logistics this is very much a “hands on” role so we are looking for someone that is equally adept at packing, loading and driving event vehicles for build-up and breakdown as planning, co-ordinating and networking at events.

As RNLI events can be based anywhere in the UK or Republic of Ireland we are looking for an independent individual that is happy to travel for work.

This post requires a valid driving licence.

Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
