Do you have experience of working on events? It could be that you work in a marketing/PR function and have experience of organising or running an event. Perhaps it is an area you have an interest in. Events in the voluntary sector could mean a variety of opportunities from manning a stall in a market, having a stand at an exhibition or being at a local activity.
There are a variety of opportunities for those with skills and experience in events including:
Role-Macmillan has three major national events each year and a number of local ones including walks, runs and golf events. Our flagship event is our World's Biggest Coffee Morning, raising over 7.8 million annually.
Hundreds of our supporters also undertake the challenge of a lifetime running marathons to raise money for Macmillan's services, trekking the Sahara, climbing Killimanjaro or another of our many challenge events.
We are looking for a volunteer Events Assistant to help us plan and market these events, ensure that the participants understand the importance of their contribution to the charity and receive the highest quality donor care and support.
