Ripon City Council is seeking to appoint an innovative, forward thinking, and proactive Events Coordinator to support the Chief Officer and the elected Councillors in achieving their aims and aspirations of providing a high quality, diverse menu of events for the city. The Events Coordinator will also undertake the key role of liaising with the Mayor of Ripon, managing and arranging their diary and invitations, as well as manage certain ancillary delegated services and responsibilities.

The Council has an adopted Ripon City Plan which runs to 2030. This outlines a wide range of aims and aspirations for the city over the next few years and the post will play a key part in assisting in seeking to meet the outcomes within the plan.

The Events Coordinator will also be expected to support the Chief Officer in facilitating the implementation of the Council’s stand-alone priorities and objectives as required.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have relevant experience – a track record of achievement and innovation, commitment to public service, be motivated, community focused, and possess sound, communication, and organisational skills.

Candidates should ideally, but not essentially, have a knowledge of local government. Of more importance is experience in an events environment and / or a similar, public facing role. Attendance at evening meetings and weekend events will be required, for which time off in lieu will be granted.

Ripon City Council is committed to Equality of Opportunity and actively welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

This process is being managed by a third party acting for the City Council. For an informal discussion and to access the Recruitment Pack then please call Mr Reg Williams on 07494 760535.

Please note:  Previous applicants need not apply.

  • The closing date for the receipt of applications is 12 Noon on Monday 18 July 2022.
  • Formal interviews will take place on Friday 29 July 2022.
  • It is hoped that the new Events Coordinator will commence their role around 5 September 2022.
