Do you want to work for a global professional membership organisation where you will be able to see the tangible impact of your work on the world we all live in? If so, this could be the organisation for you. Our client is at the heart of a management career in construction.
They are the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership, and their members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment. Perhaps most importantly, they are tasked with promoting good practice within their industry to improve quality of life for every one of us.
They have an exciting opening in their Governance team for someone who wants to get involved in activities which are at the heart of the Institute and the way they run. From dealing with complaints to managing election processes and getting involved in one of the Institute’s flagship events, this is a fantastic role to step into and really make your own.
Here are some of the key things you’ll get involved with;
· Supporting their professional conduct process. Here you’ll be dealing with potential complaints against their members, and will get involved in preparing draft documents, compiling evidence bundles, arranging meetings and managing cases through the process from start to finish.
· Taking responsibility for their Trustee and local committee elections. These are volunteers who take on roles within the Institute and you’ll be working with key external suppliers to oversee the election and induction process for these volunteers from start to finish.
· You’ll also be a key member of the team who organise their annual Members Forum conference, supporting all aspects of the event organisation as required.
· Finally, you’ll pick up a variety of different support activities within the team – from helping with the collation and formatting of meeting papers through to dealing with enquiries that come in and working on any other projects as they arise.
They are looking for someone who is incredibly well organised, used to managing complex processes from end to end and who is able to balance a busy workload with competing deadlines. With excellent administrative experience, strong IT skills and a keen eye for detail, you’ll be a strong communicator used to dealing with individuals at all levels of seniority. If you have experience in a legal or regulatory environment; the construction industry; or a membership or professional body that would be great – but it’s by no means a deal breaker.
What you might be asking is - why work for them?
In a nutshell, because they can offer you a really friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment, and they’ll show you that they are committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role. They’ll offer you a fantastic range of benefits – from access to a great pension scheme through to a variety of health and wellbeing schemes; and they’ll make sure that you’re constantly learning throughout your time with them. They even hold a Silver Investors in People Award – which they really hope will show you their commitment to this.
No two days will be the same in this exciting position, so if you thrive in an ever changing environment and love to get your teeth into a real challenge then this could be the role for you!
