Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children and young people with terminal conditions and their loved ones, across Kent, East Sussex and South East London.

We help with every element of life for a child or young person with a terminal condition by providing tailored care. From diagnosis through to end of life and bereavement services, we’re there for that journey.

Do you have the skills and expertise to take on this varied and challenging role?

We are looking for a motivated and experienced Events Manager/Project Lead to work with our Family Liaison, Creative Therapies and Bereavement Teams in organising our family social events and support programmes.

You will need to be a confident and inspirational leader with extensive experience of event management, ideally in a charity or voluntary sector. You will be motivated and innovative, with excellent organisational skills and a high level of attention to detail.

A valid driving licence is essential as there will be travel across the Demelza region, as well as some evening and weekend working.

Apply now to join #TeamDemelza and be part of our passion and dedication to be there when we are needed the most.
