We are looking to appoint a veski Events Assistant.

The role will also provide communications support around our key events to include (but not limited to) our veski inspiring women program and the delivery of the Victoria Prize for Science & Innovation and the Victoria Fellowships.

We are looking to fill the role with an immediate start and will run until the end of this calendar year – with an option to extend into 2024.

Are you an ‘up & coming’ individual who may be looking to get into an events and comms role and has capacity until the end of the year. You do not need to have experience, as you will be supported and mentored by members of the current veski team.

We are looking for someone who has a flare for event delivery (maybe you have worked in hospitality during your degree) and looking for an opportunity to cut your teeth in a small but well established organisation that has tried and tested systems in place for successful event delivery from ministerial attended events (upwards of 150pax) to workshops or round table conversations for as few as 10-12pax.

See the Position Description for this role.

If you are interested in this position – pls send your resume (no more than two pages) and a cover letter addressed to the veski fellowships and operations coordinator via [email protected] telling us why you would like to join the veski team in the Events Assistant role and what strengths you will bring to the role.

Applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis so please apply ASAP if interested. Feel free to contact the veski office on 03 9635 5700 if you have any questions.
