Posted 11 April by Blue Octopus

Do you want to work for a global professional membership organisation where you will be able to see the tangible impact of your work on the world we all live in? If so, this could be the organisation for you. Our client is at the heart of a management career in construction.

They are the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership, and their members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment. Perhaps most importantly, they are tasked with promoting good practice within their industry to improve quality of life for every one of us.

They are now looking for a Membership & Events Manager to join them on a fixed term maternity cover contract and is expected to last for up to 12 months from June 2018. This role will take responsibility for the promotion of their products and services across Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Here are some of the key things you’ll get involved with;

  • Focusing on Employer Engagement you will proactively build, develop and maintain relationships with local employers, aiming to raise the profile of the institute and meet individual membership targets.
  • Act as the main point of contact for members providing an excellent service, support and membership advice at a local level.
  • You will be a conduit for corporate information to the Local Hub committee(s) ensuring the goals and objectives of the Institute are delivered.
  • You will be involved with delivering a newsletter monthly; use all channels available e.g. social media, web.
  • Delivering an annual dinner and oversee Local Hub’s events and monitor effectiveness. In addition to the dinner you will also be running the prestigious CMYA event in Ireland.
  • You will own, manage and deliver against the hub budgets as part of the business plan, which includes monitoring, reforecasting and reporting variances.
  • Oversee the support of the Local Hub committee’s ensuring corporate goals are met, including regular visits.
  • Managing 2x members of staff in the team located in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.

They are looking for an enthusiastic and highly driven individual who has a proven track record in a senior administrative / business development role, along with experience in finance management. With excellent communication and organisational skills, you will have the desire and passion to build and maintain strong mutually beneficial relationships and strive towards meeting targets. They’d like you to be educated to A Level standard as a minimum, demonstrate good standards of the English language and have strong numerical skills.

A strong team player with effective decision making skills, you will be capable of overseeing, organising and reviewing successful events and have previous line management experience, giving you the ability to successfully train and coach others. You will need to be a proficient IT user, including Microsoft Office, internal systems and social media and be confident in business planning, managing budgets and reforecasting.

Although this role is home based, candidates must be willing to travel and work flexible hours to meet the organisations’ needs. A relevant professional qualification would be highly desirable, however, this is by no means essential. Experience of the building / construction sector would be highly desirable; however, this is by no means essential.

What you might be asking is - why work for them?

In a nutshell, because they can offer you a really friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment, and they’ll show you that they are committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role. They even hold a Silver Investors in People Award - which they really hope will show you their commitment to this.

No two days will be the same in this exciting position, so if you thrive in an ever changing environment and love to get your teeth into a real challenge then this could be the role for you!

They anticipate interviews being held 26th - 27th April 2018 in a hotel near Dublin airport.
