Events Manager

What we can offer

Music, it’s in our DNA. We use the power of music to enrich the lives of people affected by life limiting illness, isolation or disability and we are the largest music therapy charity in the UK. We are Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.  Let’s face it, the last 18 months have been incredibly trying.  Charities including us have found themselves in a whole new world of fundraising with our events income stifled and asks of any kind facing testing hurdles.  But we have thrived on these challenges, and Nordoff Robbins is now looking for an Events Manager to join our experienced, supportive Fundraising team to help us reach more people across the UK through the power of music.

We are NR

If you want to work at a charity with people and music at its heart, that is committed to providing an equitable, diverse and inclusive workplace full of inspiring colleagues who work tirelessly to put those it exists to serve front and centre of everything we do, if you want to work collaboratively with integrity, kindness and are willing to come with us on our adventures as we work together to come to work with strong backs, soft fronts and wild hearts, we may well be your next team.

Are you NR?

If you are values driven, courageous, curious, agile, flexible, enthusiastic and future focused (without losing sight of the here and now), if you can bring positivity and accountability to your work, if you strive for brilliance, challenges excite you and if you would speak with passion and dedication about our cause we want to hear from you!
