Job Details

We are looking for a quick learner with drive and ambition who can hit the ground running.

Help produce conferences that help move forward thinking on some of the most important issues in employment policy being examined by policymakers and stakeholders.

Please see our website for further details on the current programme which includes conferences examining policy on:

  • The pensions market
  • Disability and health in the workplace
  • Preparing young people for work, careers education and routes into employment
  • Apprenticeships policy
  • Women in the workplace
  • The future for human resources and performance management
  • Work automation
  • Employment law
  • and much more

Our events:

  • Constructive, inclusive, challenging and strictly impartial
  • Important occasions for policymakers in Parliament, Government and regulatory bodies; teachers, schools, parents and children themselves; academics and businesses; and other interested parties.

What we’re looking for:

  • Some solid work experience - in policy, conference production, journalism, public affairs or similar fields
  • Practical focus and passionate about helping achieve our mission of providing policy makers with the context to make best decisions
  • Excellent communication, organisational and time management skills - and quick to learn
  • Ability to assimilate information quickly, identify key issues from a range of stakeholder viewpoints (in line with our core proposition of impartiality)
  • Clear, stylish accurate writing is essential

The role:

  • Demanding but rewarding - in a company that is commercially focused and expanding, but with a strong ethical heart
  • Part of a small team working on all aspects of event production
  • Following latest policy developments and news from the sector - and researching issues, possible speakers and contacts
  • Drafting agendas and promotional text for the seminars
  • Liaising with speakers and our Parliamentary chairs
  • Attending and contributing to the smooth operation of our seminars and receptions held in Westminster and elsewhere in the UK

There's a high degree of fast-paced multi-tasking but support from senior editorial staff and rest of the 100-strong team is always on hand.
