Job Seniority: Co-ordinator
Job Function: Other

Housing, high streets, transport, the climate emergency, what we build and where … planning seems to be all over the news at present! Are you interested too and would you enjoy working with our members and future members?

The Royal Town Planning Institute champions the power of planning in creating socially inclusive, economically and environmentally sustainable places for communities. We represent over 25,000 members worldwide, supporting them throughout their careers. We shape planning policy, raise professional standards and are the only body in the UK to confer Chartered status to planners, the highest professional qualification.

We are looking for a Regional Co-ordinator to support the volunteer committee in the delivery of our corporate strategy. This role operates as the hub in the region for all activity and communication. A key function is to support and expand our membership base by managing regional events and facilitating the delivery of activities on their behalf. Organised events include both CPD programmes and social events, providing networking, membership development opportunities. Excellent communication skills are essential to the role as is familiarity with marketing platforms.

This is a stand-alone role in the region and involves working with volunteer committees’ members, stakeholders and partners. Team working with staff in other regions and liaison with staff in our office in London is also essential. Most of the work is done within the region; however, there will be occasional visits to the London office.

You will have event management experience and strong IT skills, with the ability to multi-task and manage your workload in a pressurised environment. A strong customer focus is essential, as is the ability to influence others, as the success of this role is heavily dependant on our volunteer members’ who are a key part of the Institute. An interest in planning or the built environment would be an advantage, as would a qualification in event marketing.
