Stone Town Council
Marketing and Events Organiser
Part-Time, 23 Hours per Week
£27,344 – £28,371 per annum pro-rata (£16,998 – £17,636 approx.)
Stone Town Council is a busy local council supporting the town of Stone, Staffordshire. We are looking for a Marketing and Events Organiser to successfully market Council facilities, and to deliver and promote footfall events in the town.
This is a fast-paced, challenging role incorporating a wide variety of tasks. It will provide an opportunity to work on your own initiative and develop the role, whilst also carrying out a range of tasks alongside the office team.
There will be some evening and weekend work to meet the requirements of the Town Council.
Candidates must be skilled in digital marketing, campaigning, and social media, with a wide range of event knowledge, including the creation and management of event budgets. Experience in business to business and business to customer marketing will be essential, as will the skills to write briefs, debriefs, and press releases. Working to deadlines, good planning and effective project management will also be essential to ensure that events are delivered successfully.
This is a new role, which would give an ambitious candidate the opportunity to develop it from the ground up as a unique stepping-stone in their career development.
The post is part-time, 23 hours per week. We would anticipate 20 of these hours being worked in the office spread throughout the week, with the remaining 3 hours accumulated to provide for attendance at out-of-hours events. The Council would be willing to discuss working patterns in order to meet both the Council’s needs and those of the person appointed, but a flexible overall approach will be needed, particularly in order to attend events which may take place in the evening or at weekends.
Please ring the Town Clerk, Les Trigg, on 01785 619740 if you have any questions about the role.
