Heal is looking for a part-time Events Coordinator to join our small team at an exciting time for the charity, as we have recently acquired our foundation rewilding site, Heal Somerset.

About the role

 

Heal Rewilding is seeking to recruit an organised and meticulous Events Coordinator to support the Learning and Sharing Manager in developing a comprehensive programme of engaging and educational events and activities which cover Heal’s three main areas – rewilding, climate change and wellbeing.

You will work together to engage and maintain a wide range of audiences and an important aspect of the role will be engaging organisations from within the corporate sector and contributing to the creation of compelling packages for them to meet and run training, events and volunteering activities at Heal Somerset.

 

As part of the Engagement team, you will assist with all aspects of the planning and delivery of events and activities including practical logistics, attendee communication, accurate documentation and attending and supporting at the events themselves.
