Institute of Directors

  • Central London / West End
The IoD is the UK’s number one organisation for business leaders. It provides leading edge representation, support, senior networks, professional development and standard setting for directors, entrepreneurs, founders and leaders.

Just over a year ago, in the biggest shake up to the IoD in 40 years, we launched IoD Advance – an exclusive membership community for leaders.

After a successful launch, the Advance network is growing quickly and we have an exciting opportunity for a Relationship Executive to work with the project team to support the day-to-day running of the Advance programme as it continues to evolve.

Reporting to the Advance Community Manager, you will be responsible for handling the operational side of events, helping to arrange with speakers, sending out updates and reminders, maintaining member data, updating collateral, uploading content to the Advance app and dealing with member queries. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to the evolution of the product, specifically with regards to national rollout and the Advance app, the first social network for business leaders! This will involve working closely with other teams such as Professional Development, Sales and Marketing.

This role plays an important part in ensuring our members have an excellent customer experience, therefore strong communication skills are vital. You will be confident speaking to people of all levels (previous experience of working with senior managers or directors would be an advantage) and you will be happy to work on several projects simultaneously. Flexibility will also be key as you’ll be required to support fortnightly evening events that are hosted for the Advance Community.

The successful candidate will be someone of graduate calibre. Previous experience in relationship management is preferred and you will ideally have experience of event organisation, analysis, insight and reporting.

This is an ideal position if you’re looking for a varied role where you’ll develop lots of skills and have the ability to leave your mark on an exciting initiative in a very important stage of its development. You should be a motivated self-starter who is full of ideas and willing to work as part of a dedicated team in an inclusive, open and honest manner.
