We are seeking a highly organised and efficient individual to support our events, marketing and communications activities. This is an exciting and varied role and we are looking for candidates with the perfect blend of administrative and creative skills. You will work closely with the CPD, Events and Marketing Manager and will also have the opportunity to take ownership of individual events and marketing campaigns to contribute to the continued success of this key business area.

You will be a conscientious and reliable person who can make limited resources go far. You will enjoy seeing projects from the planning stages through to delivery and review. You will need to be a clear communicator who is confident in representing the GA both online and face-to-face. Crucial to the development and support of organisation-wide campaigns will be your knowledge of marketing techniques, ability to understand and communicate with a range of audiences, and experience of tracking campaign success.

A key moment in the GA calendar is the three-day Annual Conference and Exhibition which attracts delegates from all over the world. You will be instrumental in ensuring the smooth running of this international event.

The ability to prioritise and multi-task is essential and your attention to detail will be second to none. Prior experience of organising events and running marketing campaigns would be an advantage.
