The majority of these events are small dinners with 15-20 attendees in London, the programme also includes sandwich lunches and drinks receptions for larger audiences. You must be able to attend all events as required, including evenings.
  • Researching and booking private dining rooms, liaising with venues on event delivery, inviting guests, liaising with speakers and external partners and ensuring smooth running of events on the day.
  • Helping to deliver the company’s events programme of around 30 events at the annual Conservative Party Conference, at which attendance is essential.

  • Political experience is not essential, but an interest is required.
  • Sympathy with the values and aims of ConservativeHome.

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Experience of admin software such as Microsoft Office, Dropbox and Monday.com.
