Staff Vacancies


This will be the second year we have taken on board an events assistant following the successful placement in 2020. Despite Covid -19 restrictions we still carried out live and online events whilst following the latest Government Guidelines.

The assistant role will work with us on the full management process of marketing, programming, project management, operational planning, budget management as well as fundraising and sponsorship and on-site event management. You will get an opportunity to manage projects from start to finish and we will provide you with the support and training to ensure you gain valuable experience. We can adapt your work experience to fit with your skill set and what you want to achieve from the placement.

Thatcham is a Town on the move, creating engaging events which will make its residents proud of being part of its community. We were able to adapt our events programme in 2020 to follow Covid-19 restrictions and will be creating the same approach in 2021. Although Thatcham is a small Parish Council, we punch above our weight with an events team with a full time Events Manager. We have developed strong partnerships with regional cultural organisations and local businesses to create events which have expanded in scale and quality in recent years. Our events programme are designed to support our local community and include large scale seasonal family events as well as a 9-day Arts and Leisure Festival.

Ideally you will be free from June 2021 and be able to run through on a full-time basis until your placement criteria finishes in early 2022. Your normal hours of work will be Monday- Friday from 9.00am-5.00pm. There will be some pro-rata weekend and evening work. We are always prepared to be flexible depending on your placement requirements.

We will pay a generous subsistence allowance which will include travel and living expenses.

You must be either an event graduate or on a course with an events module or have events work experience. Please send a note of interest in first place listing your present degree and /or student/work status and a brief paragraph stating why this placement appeals to you.
