To help us realise Vision 2028 we are now looking for an Events Officer to join our External Relations team to manage the preparation and delivery of a comprehensive corporate events and engagement programme including those targeting staff, student, and wider community. This exciting and varied role will see you working with key stakeholders to support the delivery of the annual event calendar in line with the defined engagement strategies to enhance UEL’s reputation and brand. This role, among other things, will specifically focus on the delivery of the graduation ceremonies held twice a year.


We are looking for an individual with solid experience of event delivery, who is a creative thinker, with excellent communications skills and able to build positive relations with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. Staying calm under pressure and being used to delivering to demanding deadlines will come naturally to you. What's more, you're willing to work some long days, evenings, and weekends (with agreed time off in lieu) to get the job done.

Our pioneering and forward-thinking vision is making a positive and significant impact on the communities we serve, inspiring both our staff and students to reach their full potential. Join us and #BeTheChange.
