Haileybury is an outstanding British independent co-educational boarding school, offering modern boarding and day provision for 875 boys and girls aged 11-18. Established in 1862, we are situated on a glorious and historic 500-acre campus in Hertfordshire, just 20 miles north of London.
Haileybury are looking for an Events Assistant to support the Events Manager in delivering high-end, refined Admissions and Marketing events (both virtual and in-person). The Events Assistant will play a key role in outreach events and will have ownership of delivery in particular areas, with final oversite sitting with the Events Manager.
The post-holder will be a progressive and creative thinker, with communication being a core strength. They will be joining an exciting and dynamic department, which works at a fast pace and therefore must be able to work well under pressure. Beyond working closely with the Admissions and Marketing teams, they will work to develop excellent relationships with stakeholders across the school and with external suppliers. The Events Assistant will be able to anticipate project needs, discern work priorities, and meet deadlines with little supervision.
The nature of a 24 hour, seven day week boarding school means flexibility is vital. In addition to the core working hours, the job holder will be required to work reasonable additional hours as are necessary for the proper performance of the role and as the demands of the job require. This will include working early mornings, evenings and at weekends, especially on special event days.
