We have an exciting schedule of events and marketing activities planned and need an experienced coordinator who can jump in and get up to speed quickly.

Supporting the Brand and Marketing Manager and the wider Brand and Communications team in three key areas - event coordination, marketing coordination and client services, this role is varied and provides plenty of opportunity to gain experience with support from our large in house team.

This position is a fixed-term parental leave role (6.5 months), part-time (0.7 FTE) position, and reports to the Brand and Marketing Manager. It is based at our Lincoln site, however as part of our flexible working policy we are open to some hours being worked remotely.

About you:

  • You will have at least 3-5 years of experience in coordinating marketing/events or other similar types of activities where skills could be transferred. Experience in sponsorship coordination is of benefit.
  • You will be digitally capable across a variety of platforms from the Microsoft products to social media and webinar applications.
  • You take pride in delivering work on time and getting results, while applying attention to the detail and appropriate prioritisation.
  • You enjoy working in a team and have good relationship management skills to work with multiple stakeholders both internally and externally. Utilising your marketing experience, you have a relentless customer focus while being pragmatic and taking initiative.

If you have an interest in science, research, sustainability, and care for our flora and fauna, land and water, this is a plus for us!
