Events Manager

Do you have previous sales and event operations experience and the ability to work with private and corporate clients on all levels? Do you want to progress your events career in a famous landmark venue in the centre of London?

We are recruiting for an Events Manager based at the Science Museum in London. This dynamic role will include a wide range of responsibilities, from sales support through to planning and operations. The Events Manager will be the first point of contact for any new client wishing to host an event with us, so enthusiasm and passion for the museum and events industry is key.

We have 13 unique galleries currently available for hire, along with our private event space, Illuminate. Illuminate is situated on levels four and five of the Science Museum and is available for both daytime and evening hire. In addition, we have also just launched a new event space, the Smith Centre. Originally constructed in 1890, the Smith Centre has been elegantly preserved to present four spaces of varying size that suit a wide variety of event purposes.

Events will range from conferences, product launches, dinners, receptions, Christmas parties and possibly private events. Having worked with clients such as Rolls Royce, Nike and UNICEF, you will be able to expand their knowledge of a wide variety of events across all different sectors.

Joining us you will have previous sales and event operations experience, be enthusiastic, driven and willing to evolve with the museum. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to network confidently and work with private and corporate clients on all levels. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to progress their career in a famous landmark venue in the centre of London.

The Science Museum Group (SMG) is here to inspire futures. As the world’s leading group of science museums, we share our unparalleled collection spanning science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine with over five million visitors each year. Joining us as an employee, you will have the opportunity to develop your career in a world-class museum group. We know work/life balance and wellbeing is crucial to our colleagues, so we currently offer up to 25 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays; BUPA medical and dental care; employee assistance programme; enhanced contributory pension; enhanced occupational sick, maternity, paternity and adoption leave and career breaks.

‘Open for All’ is one of the Science Museum Group’s five core values and sets out our important aspiration to be a place for everyone. As a national museum group, we have an ability to reach a wide and diverse population of audiences, colleagues and partners through our geography and scale.

We are working hard to understand our organisation better and to foster a culture that recognises and values different backgrounds, mindsets, skills, experience, knowledge and expertise. By having greater diversity, we believe that we will be a stronger and better organisation and ultimately will be able to inspire more futures. We therefore welcome applications from those who bring difference.
