About the role

Cambridge-hosted face-to-face events

Our objective is to develop and execute an ongoing events program that aligns with our marketing communications strategy for our Lead and Key markets, in accordance with our strategic framework. This involves:

  • Identifying the target audience for each event, formulating communication plans, compiling delegate lists, and extending invitations.
  • Collaborating in the development of event agendas.
  • Locating suitable venues and providing logistical support for event execution, including hosting, catering, and AV arrangements.
  • Coordinating the creation and approval of speaker presentations.
  • Handling material orders to support events, such as stands and brochures.

You will be responsible for overseeing our partners' participation in events, ensuring a seamless and productive collaboration. Additionally, you'll be managing the event feedback process, where your role will involve collecting and analysing feedback to create comprehensive event reports.

Furthermore, you'll be tasked with forecasting event expenses and closely tracking the events to ensure they align with expectations and stay within the allocated budget. Your attention to financial detail will be critical in this aspect of the role.

3rd party events

In this role, you will actively search for appropriate speaking and sponsorship opportunities that can elevate Cambridge's presence within the international education sector. You will also play a pivotal role in cultivating and strengthening relationships with crucial figures in the industry media landscape.

Furthermore, your responsibilities will involve seamless coordination with speakers and event organisers to guarantee the successful execution of our events. Your attention to detail will be crucial in ensuring that these events run smoothly.

Community engagement will consist of:

  • Working with community board leads to design and manage annual plan and calendar for Cambridge Schools Community in East Asia.
  • Support and ensure delivery of Cambridge Schools Community plan.
  • Managing data and reporting on community engagement activities to track community engagement progress, ensuring compliance and best practices in data management and reporting.
  • Promoting awareness of Cambridge Schools Community internally and externally.
  • Developing Cambridge School Community events guidelines and SOP. Creating events resources for increased efficiency: content banks, templates etc.

You'll also be contributing to various other marketing projects and providing essential support in areas such as creating new supplier profiles, raising purchase orders, and managing payments. Additionally, you will play a role in facilitating the successful execution of our marketing campaigns, ensuring they are delivered effectively. Your assistance in these tasks will be highly valuable to our overall marketing efforts.


About you

To qualify for this position, you should have a Bachelor's degree or higher.

You will need to demonstrate excellent time management and multitasking abilities. Attention to detail and confident communication skills are also essential. Furthermore, you should excel in collaboration, working positively with cross-functional stakeholders to achieve common goals.

Candidates for this role should bring a passion for education and various years of experience in events management, with a preference for experience in community-driven initiatives encompassing both online and in-person experiences.
