Rottingdean Whiteway Centre (RWC) is a busy community charity run by volunteers, in the heart of Rottingdean. We organise educational courses, rent out our rooms to local groups and for parties, a nursery operates daily in one of our halls. 

In addition to the wide range of termly adult education courses, RWC arranges up to ten weekend events per year on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings or, occasionally, all-day Saturday. These are very popular and reasonably priced talks. In this role, the Events manager would find and engage speakers on subjects of interest and agree any fees, agree what technology needs to be available for the speaker and ensure it is set out for the event.

They would oversee the event, by meeting the speaker, introducing them, and ensuring things run smoothly. Online bookings are reported to the treasurer after the events. 

For an idea of the current talks see our website https://www.rwc.org.uk/special_events
