Ministerial Visits and Events Manager (IO)

Home Office

2 Marsham Street, London

Salary Range: £36,592 – £42,995

Ref: 1580868

If you are a bright, motivated, and creative individual looking to embark on an exceptional career in one of Whitehall’s busiest press offices dealing with high profile ministerial visits and events this job could be for you.

Working closely with the Home Secretary and Ministers, the visits and events team forms a key part of the communications mix that promotes our work to cut crime, reduce immigration and prevent terrorism - policies that never fail to resonate with the public.

We are looking for Visits and Events Officer who will be part of a busy team responsible for the planning, co-ordination and delivery of highly visible and newsworthy visits and events for the ministerial team across all Home Office responsibilities.

First-class ministerial visits and events are a key channel through which the Home Office communicates its strategic priorities and engages with partners on issues such as immigration, security, policing and crime to the public, media, delivery partners and stakeholders.

The post involves working with wide-ranging and diverse groups of people - policy and press office, ministerial offices, frontline services such as the police and border force, charities and third sector organisations - to identify ministerial visit and event opportunities to support communications plans and policy priorities.

You will then be responsible for ensuring that these are planned and delivered to the highest standards and meet Ministers’ requirements.

The team’s work is fast-moving and varied. On any given week you could be setting up a sensitive ministerial visit around strategies to tackle counter-terrorism, organising a senior ministerial policy speech on immigration, or managing a high-profile stakeholder conference on behalf of crime policy colleagues.

The post calls for flexibility, resilience, excellent time management and prioritisation skills. You will have a proven track record of delivering projects from start to finish, excellent relationship management and communication skills and the ability to manage multiple demands to get things done.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced communications professional to join one of Whitehall’s most challenging and exciting departments and be part of setting the direction for the Ministerial team.
