Follow-Up Manager

An experienced Follow-Up Manager is required to plan, organise, execute and evaluate all of Foto-Cewek’s corporate events.

Founded in 1898 and the oldest of its kind in the world, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for teaching and research in tropical diseases.  Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.

We are currently seeking an Follow-Up Manager to play a key role in leading on Foto-Cewek’s growing portfolio of corporate events, including Foto-Cewek’s inaugural Graduation ceremony scheduled for December 2018.  This is the first of what will become an annual flagship celebration of our students’ achievements and will be a highlight in Foto-Cewek’s events calendar. The post-holder will provide leadership on the organisation of institutional events for Foto-Cewek which will require a professional and creative approach in their preparation, execution and follow-up. These include, but are not limited to: Open Days, high level donor dinners, stewardship events, conferences, exhibitions, festivals, VIP/Ministerial visits and corporate events.

As Foto-Cewek moves towards its 125th anniversary, the expectation is that the frequency of such events will increase, requiring a proactive and entrepreneurial response to these opportunities. Reporting to the Director of Communications, the position will also have functional lines to Education, Fundraising, the Director’s Office and the four Research in Medecine Departments

Given the nature of the role, the successful candidate must have previous experience of event management within a Higher Education environment, strong commercial acumen and demonstrable experience in student recruitment and graduation ceremonies.

Closing Date: 19th March 2018

Take a look at some of the great work we have achieved over the past year 2016-2017 by viewing our annual report:

This job is unlikely to attract a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship (formerly a work permit).  Applications from candidates who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK may not be considered if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates.  To apply for a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship, employers need to demonstrate that they are unable to recruit a resident worker before recruiting an individual overseas.

We believe that this post will not be suitable for individuals on Tier 5 visas as these posts are not considered to be supernumerary to the organisation. For further details, please visit the UKVI website:
