Leeds Castle welcomes over 550,000 day visitors each year. To enhance our visitor experience we plan and run a regular, varied programme of events including an open air classical concert, car show, fireworks spectacular as well as many smaller events. The Events Team also develop and deliver a daily programme of events which generate income and drive visitor numbers, whilst supporting the castle’s stories and reinforcing the castle’s brand.

This year Leeds Castle will celebrate 900 years of history and to support the additional events we have planned we are looking to recruit and Events Assistant. Working with the Head of Engagement and Events the successful applicant should have previous events experience, be happy, cheerful and personable with a ‘can do’ attitude. Enthusiasm to get involved is vital, this is a ‘hands on’, role which will involve working many weekends, outside in all weathers, to ensure the success of our events.

The castle is approximately one mile from the nearest bus stop and three miles from the nearest railway station so ideally you will need your own transport as it would be very difficult to get here if you don’t. In addition you may be required to drive the company vehicles across site during the course of your job. This is a fixed term position which will continue until December 2019, working 37.5 hours each week the job would require weekend working when events are running. The salary for this position would be circa £20,000 per annum.
