Are you an experienced training or events professional looking for a new challenge in a role where you can really make a difference to others?

Working with over 3,000 schools and settings around the country, we provide training, support and challenge to schools, trusts and governors at all levels. We’re the largest schools’ company in the UK and support schools and educational settings in delivering improved outcomes for children.

We’re HFL Education. We operate as a not-for-profit social enterprise, and we’re owned by schools for the benefit of schools. 

Each year we organise over 2,500 events including training workshops, conferences and seminars – across a range of face to face and digital platforms. We not only provide technology services to schools but are also firmly committed to the deployment of digital technology and the development of online learning. 

It’s an exciting time to join us as we grow our reach, providing new solutions to more schools, settings and trusts to cater for their emerging needs. We’re looking for passionate individuals who can join to help us plan, co-ordinate and deliver our diverse suite of events and conferences to professionals working in schools and settings. 

Like the sound of working with us? Our colleagues come from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds and have different skillsets, but all share the belief that every young person should be able to realise their potential through access to a great education, regardless of where they live or their personal circumstances.

We are delighted to promote opportunities to join our experienced training & events team through three opportunities:

Conference Manager HFL1528

This role sits in the wheelhouse of the Events Team, supporting across the Training and Conference arms. The role will look after our digital systems as well as managing our events data to enable the Head of Events to make strategic decisions. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of events management systems and have an excellent eye for detail.

Benefits: a generous employer pension contribution, 28 days annual leave plus bank holidays (rising to 31 days after five-years) or the equivalent paid for Term Time employees, family-friendly policies, hybrid working, paid mileage, a cycle to work scheme, onsite charging points for electric vehicles, access to mental health and wellbeing support, company performance bonus, professional development opportunities, benefit schemes for discounts and cashback offers, and more.

As part of our move towards eradicating unconscious bias within the recruitment process, we will be anonymising your forms.

For recruitment queries, our Central Recruitment Team can also be contacted on the hfl.recruitment email address above. We would love to hear from you.

We are committed towards becoming an anti-racist organisation, and our recruitment statement is set out below in support of this.

HFL is committed to being an equal opportunities employer. We insist on the equal treatment of all current and prospective colleagues and will never condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.

HFL is also equally committed to becoming an anti-racist organisation and we encourage you to view our Anti-racist position statement which gives clarity on our anti-racist stance. In our relentless efforts to be an anti-racist organisation, we recognise the negative impacts of under representation and lack of diversity in our organisation, our education system and in all aspects of our society. Therefore, for recruitment into any HFL post, where we have 2 or more candidates of equal merit, candidates with protected characteristics will be given advantage over candidates without such characteristics. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘tie-breaker’ and is referred to as ‘positive action’ in the Equality Act 2010.

To help us meet our high standards and aspirations of a fully diverse and inclusive workplace, we strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply and to join us.

Please note that if you are invited to interview, we will expect you to be prepared to discuss unconscious bias with us; we find these conversations more than any others give us all a good idea of what working together will be like.
