    About the role We’re looking for an Events Manager to organise our annual Not-For-Profit People Conference, as well as some smaller events through the year.

    Now in its fifth year, the Not-For-Profit People Conference is Australia’s largest event focused on how to attract, train and retain the best people for the NFP sector. In 2016 the conference was a sell out, attracting over 500 attendees and 30+ speakers. We hope to grow even further in 2017!

    The responsibilities of the role include:

    • Responsibility for all aspects of event management, from planning to event day, and post-conference wrap-up
    • Management of all conference timelines and deadlines;
    • Project planning & budgeting;
    • Exploring new options for the conference and assessing their feasibility;
    • Speaker research, invitation and liaison;
    • Sponsor and exhibitor relationships, from invitations (including some sales calls) to managing ongoing relationships;
    • Affiliate marketing through NFP sector organisations;
    • Liaising with a design agency and overseeing the development of marketing collateral;
    • Overseeing and updating the conference website (WordPress);
    • Managing relationships with contractors and the venue;
    • Managing a conference assistant in the months leading up to the conference;

    About You You’re an experienced event organiser who’s had primary responsibility for organising a conference or similar large event or project. You’ve ideally worked in or with the not-for-profit sector before.

    An event of this size has many moving parts, so you’re someone who’s exceptionally organised, has meticulous attention to detail, and thrives on “keeping all the balls in the air” at the same time.

    You’re someone who’s able to work at a conceptual level on ideas for marketing the conference to attendees and sponsors, as well as “getting your hands dirty” with the day-to-day minutiae and reality of being the sole organiser of an event like this.

    You’re friendly, fun and work well as part of a team, but you’ve also got great initiative and you’re able to work well with little supervision.

    Most of all you’re keen to do a job that makes a difference!
