We currently have a vacancy in the Commercial Events team for an Events Planner based at HM Tower of London. 

Reporting to the Commercial Events Manager, you will be joining a very busy team whose main responsibilities are maximizing income while ensuring the Tower, its residents, and day visitors are not detrimentally affected by our activities.  

A friendly and efficient team that consistently produces events to delight our clients and bring them back for more, we are seeking a like-minded individual with a passion and creativity for events and the history of the Tower and Monarchy.  

Whether you’re focusing on sales, organisational detail, financial documents (or anything in between) your contact will always have accurate information and ultimate confidence in your ability.

You must be a self-starter and a quick learner with the ability to hit the ground running. Possessing the ability to work on your own initiative, you must be flexible and adaptable with an outgoing and pleasant personality. Someone who can work well in a team environment, you’ll also have excellent IT, communication, and interpersonal skills. 

You will also have proven experience of selling a venue and running events on an operational level. In-depth knowledge of the industry is essential and an interest for British history is favourable. 

Microsoft and database management skills will be required, along with experience of working with approved suppliers and using financial and diary systems such as Kinetix and E-fin.
Your attendance at events will be required as you will be responsible for ensuring all goes to plan and that all the client’s requirements are met. 

This will involve evenings and weekends, Bank Holidays, along with early mornings and late evenings as and when the events schedule requires it. 

Please be aware that the shortlisting for this role may take longer than normal due to annual leave within the team. We anticipate interviews being mid-September. 

We would like to start reviewing received applications before the closing date (28/08/22), so would be grateful if you could apply as early as possible. All applications will be considered.

Historic Royal Palaces is an equal opportunities employer and truly values a diverse workforce.  Applications are welcome from candidates regardless of their background.

This vacancy is closed to applications.
