Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and its members. With a passion to promote a wider public appetite and interest in architecture through its website, exhibitions, talks and four million-strong collections, the RIBA has led the profession since its foundation in 1834, and continues to lead as architects face the challenges of the 21st century. With 40,000 members worldwide and over 5,000 overseas, the RIBA has a truly global reach.
This role involves supporting the activities and events of the RIBA Practice Department. You will work closely with several expert member advisory groups by facilitating meetings and acting as a main point of contact for members. You will also manage the delivery of a range of professional events (conferences and seminars), as well as supporting the outreach and communications of the RIBA Practice Department.
You should be degree qualified (or equivalent), with first class interpersonal and communication skills, and preferably with some events organisation experience. The ability to work on a range of diverse issues with members and other teams within the RIBA and to produce high quality written documents, including reports, meeting notes, presentations, articles, marketing and web copy is essential.
An interest in architecture and improvement of architects’ professional services is desirable. Ideally you should have previous experience of working in a membership organisation, architectural practice or construction organisation.
