The Fabian Society is seeking an enthusiastic and reliable Events and Stakeholder Assistant or Officer to deliver our events and our stakeholder communications, as a key member of the society’s events, membership and external affairs team. The role will involve working closely with the Director of External Affairs and Events in planning and delivering our busy events programme, managing information about our stakeholders and producing communications for stakeholders.
We are seeking to recruit EITHER an events and stakeholder assistant (ie trainee) OR an events and stakeholder officer. Applicants for the officer position should be able to fulfil all aspects of the role already and demonstrate relevant previous experience. Our assistant positions are designed for people with significant potential who do not have previous experience of working in politics. Assistants enter a year-long development programme during which they are trained to perform all aspects of the job and undertake a wider induction into working in politics. Following successful completion of the one-year programme the expectation is that post-holders will be promoted.

We publish articles and reports, conduct research and major inquiries, convene conferences and events and facilitate our members’ political debate and activism across the UK. The society is affiliated to the Labour party but editorially and organisationally independent. We have 12 employees based in our own central London office (close to St James Park tube station) and one employee based in Edinburgh. Our employees share the aims and values of the society and automatically join as members upon appointment.
