Job: Event Coordinator at Glasgow Women’s Library

Glasgow Women’s Library are working with Adopt an Intern to recruit an Events Coordinator for a part-time, 12 week contract. Starting in February, the role will see the successful candidate working with Women of Color (WoC) creatives to plan, organise and deliver one of GWL’s customised ‘Herland’ events in May 2017.

Herland is an irregular event night at Glasgow Women’s Library. It distills and blends the special ingredients of GWL: illuminating learning and surprising pleasures, the historic and the cutting edge, and the bringing together of diverse audiences to discover new ideas and enjoy established and experimental women creatives work. At Herland these are served up with good food and live music in an evocative, beautiful space. Our May Herland is being curated by Collect:If members, our fabulous new network bringing together WoC who are established figures in the arts, culture and creative industries in Scotland and those who are developing their practice.

The Events Coordinator will lead and manage a small team of WoC creatives; liaise and report back to key staff members as required; organise layout, equipment, staffing and catering for the event; and assist in marketing and promoting the event.

The skills required for the role include good organisational skills, excellent interpersonal, communication and networking skills and the ability to deliver a project from inception to completion.
