Job description

The opportunity

This is an exciting opportunity to play a pivotal role leading the delivery of key events to support UAL’s first major fundraising campaign.

As Head of Events you will have responsibility for the events strategy and delivery within the Development department at UAL. Working with the support of an Events Manager and an Events Officer, you will provide a central hub of expertise for events management for high-profile external audiences, primarily to advance the fundraising and relationship management goals of the Development department and the wider Social Purpose Group. 

You will work with the Director of Development, the Head of Campaign and other senior colleagues to lead on the planning, development and implementation of a programme of events in support of UAL’s first-ever comprehensive fundraising campaign, which is expected to deliver a £75 million pound fundraising target to support UAL’s strategic priorities.

In addition to this, you will lead on the project management and strategic delivery of UAL's most important institutional events, including graduation ceremonies for 8,000+ students and their guests, and UAL’s all-staff summer party.

About you

You will need significant experience of leading and delivering events in a fundraising environment, such as gala dinners and bespoke cultivation and stewardship events.

You will also need experience of devising an events programme in collaboration with colleagues and setting and meeting objectives for a programme of events.

Demonstrable knowledge or understanding of arts and culture is equally important.

If you have any queries about this role or need any reasonable adjustments for your application, please contact Zele Akhilele, Resourcing Adviser via email at  SocialPurposestaffrecruitment@arts.ac.uk.
