Events and experiential activity at UEL offer a window into our courses, expertise and student life for our future prospective students and their influencers, and are a pivotal point of our recruitment strategy. The Events and Experiential Recruitment Officer will bring our programme of events to life, covering a hybrid model of both on and off-site events, plus immersive virtual activity across a range of digital platforms. Supporting on all key stages of planning, delivery and evaluation, the role holder will seek to deliver high quality engagements to meet ever-changing audience expectations, showcasing the very best of learning and student life at UEL. 


This is an exciting opportunity where innovative ideas to develop meaningful events, interactions and engagement are both encouraged and supported. 


We are looking for a passionate events professional, with strong experience of managing a busy schedule of engagements. With first-rate organisational skills, you’ll have a proactive can-do attitude towards all elements of planning, delivery, and evaluation. Experience of working with virtual event platforms is a must and the successful candidate will be digitally-focussed and confident in commanding new technology to deliver meaningful engagements for our audiences. More importantly, we’re looking for creativity in delivery, and an ability to bring our events to live, showcasing a window into UEL for our prospective students. Candidates will need excellent interpersonal skills to influence and engage a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, in addition to people management experience. You will have knowledge of working in a Higher Education environment or working with a youth audience, and an ability to work flexibly to support a varied events programme is essential.
