Job Description

COSLA is the voice of Local Government in Scotland. We provide political leadership on national issues, and work with Councils to improve local services and strengthen local democracy. We also run a busy conference centre, and are looking to recruit an Events Officer to work in our modern, spacious events venue in the heart of Edinburgh. Our Events Officers provide excellent customer service to our conference centre clients, liaising with them from the time of booking through to the event itself, ensuring all aspects of the event are taken care of.  When helping to organise our annual conference our Events Officers liaise with delegates, speakers, exhibitors and venue staff.   To be considered for this role you must be courteous, friendly and have excellent customer service skills.  Attention to detail in carrying out a range of administrative tasks is crucial, as is the ability to work flexibly as part of a small team. You must be able to use Microsoft Office and have the willingness to learn how to resolve routine IT/audio-visual issues in the conference centre.  As an Events Officer, it is essential that you can carry out your duties at residential events away from the Edinburgh conference centre, once or twice a year.   The successful candidate will benefit from a competitive salary, Local Government pension and 37 days leave per year.  COSLA offers a friendly working environment, based in modern offices at the heart of Edinburgh’s West End.



This is a full-time post (36 hours per week, flexi-time) and is for a fixed term for 12 months.
