Unlocked Graduates

Events Officer

We are always looking for people passionate about tackling social inequality who want to help us reduce reoffending by changing prisons.

Unlocked Graduates is an award-winning organisation that aims to change the way we develop society’s future leaders, as well as how we think about prisons and prisoners, by focusing on rehabilitation and addressing the damage and cost of reoffending.

The Role

Unlocked Graduates offers a two-year leadership development programme. We are looking for an outstanding individual to work with a small, talented team to deliver some of the key events in this programme.

Reporting to the Head of Delivery, the Events Officer will take a lead role in the planning and delivery of our annual conference and graduation ceremony. We are looking for someone with sufficient experience who can hit the ground running with the planning of these events, as well as other ad-hoc events, such as team away days.

In addition to this, you will also lead on a number of logistical elements for our Summer Institute (SI) based in Leeds. SI is the key event deliverable in our two-year programme and is a six-week training programme that equips participants to begin their roles as frontline prisoner officers. You will be responsible for various complex logistical elements, such as transport, accommodation and catering, for approximately 140 participants and 50 staff members, which are all imperative to the smooth running of this training event.

At Unlocked Graduates, we constantly evaluate our processes and training to ensure we are on par with leading graduate programmes. You will support the Head of Delivery with the post-SI evaluation process, gathering and analysing feedback, and carrying out the quality improvement process.
