LionHeart’s history spans over 100 years and has seen us develop from a traditional benevolent fund to a multi-layered, multi-faceted service delivery organisation.

 

From our in-house counselling service to legal advice, employment and financial support, we tailor support for each person who calls us for help, and we also offer a popular programme of training and development workshops and webinars.

 

We have a friendly, hard-working team who really care about the work they do and the difference they make to RICS professionals and their families. As an employer, we also pride ourselves on a real commitment to work-life balance and a fun, flexible and exciting working environment, and were recently awarded Gold Investors in People status.


LionHeart is in the second year of an ambitious 5 year strategy to deliver more services to even more members of the RICS community. As part of this strategy we are stepping up our events programme and are seeking an additional member of the events team. 

 

We currently have the following opportunity to join the team:

 

Events and Marketing Co-ordinator

The role is initially a six month contract while we grow the events programme.  You’ll be planning and arranging a wide range of wellbeing events online and face to face as things start to open up again.

You’ll also be helping promote our services for students and apprentices, making contacts with universities and training providers. 


We’re looking for:

someone who is proficient in Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint and who is comfortable managing multiple priorities with different deadlines. You’ll also need excellent attention to detail and a high standard of spoken and written English. We’re also looking for experience of organising events - either in a paid or volunteering capacity. 


We use Microsoft Dynamics and PowerBi and training can be provided if necessary. An interest in and understanding of mental health issues and wellbeing would be an advantage as this is the focus of many of our events.  This role may include occasional travel and overnight stays but these are booked well in advance to enable you to plan your life in line with our commitment to good work / life balance. 


We’re looking for someone to work 14 - 16 hours per week and for the hours to be primarily worked Tuesday to Friday between 10.30 and 14.30 to support our lunchtime webinar programme. Early morning or evening working will be required on occasion to support a global webinar and this can be done remotely. 


LionHeart operates a mix of remote and office working but there will be a requirement to attend the LionHeart office in Birmingham 1-2 times a month for team meetings and training events. LionHeart also offers regular team development days and training opportunities, a 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme and a warm and inclusive culture. 


In line with our commitment to opportunities for all we warmly welcome applications from BAME individuals and guarantee an interview to disabled candidates who fulfil our essential criteria. Interviews will be conducted remotely and will be ‘seen questions’ interviews where candidates invited to interview will be given the interview questions an hour before the interview to help them prepare effectively. 


Salary: The salary for this role will be in the range £23,197 FTE (£10, 604 pro rata for 16 hours) to £24,418 FTE (£11,162 pro rata for 16 hours) 


Closing date: Wednesday June 16th

(Interviews for successful candidates will take place on Friday June 18th)
