Delegate Service Coordinator [temporary contract]

Salary:
£459 per week
Closing date:
1 June 2022

Background

Festivals Edinburgh is the high-level organisation, created and driven by the directors of Edinburgh’s 11 major international festivals, to take the lead on their joint strategic development and work to sustain their leadership role locally and globally.  Our mission is simple - to work collaboratively to maintain and develop Edinburgh’s position as the world’s leading festival city.

Momentum is a delegate programme, based in Edinburgh, which runs for the last week of July and throughout the month of August. It provides a dynamic platform for key cultural players from across the world to engage and build relationships with the Edinburgh’s Festivals, the wider Scottish cultural sector, and the international community that flocks to our city during the peak Festivals season. It is delivered by Festivals Edinburgh on behalf of Edinburgh’s Festivals, British Council Scotland, and Creative Scotland.

About the Role

The Delegate Services Coordinators provide support across all aspects of delegates’ itineraries during their visit and coordinate and manage their schedule in advance and on a daily basis.

Working across the full partner delivery team, the role provides administrative support to delegates’ schedules, including arrangement of meetings, booking of tickets, whilst offering information and updates to delegates on their schedules before and during their visit.

The role is an important part of a wider team to ensure delegates’ itineraries are professionally and accurately managed and is the key point of contact between delegate hosts, box offices and other members of staff.
