We are looking for an Events Academy Project Manager to lead up to eight Events Academy students, aged 16-21 years, in organising an event for Better Bankside businesses, supporting the students in every aspect of their professional and personal development throughout the programme.

Events Academy has directly involved over 100 students since 2008.

The students’ website and their films on this site explain the project in their own words.

The ideal candidate will have solid experience of working with young people aged 16-21 and some experience of event and/or project management and planning.
