  • Organise and schedule events, working with internal and external members as necessary
  • Coordinate travel arrangements and accommodation for team members as required
  • Help foster a positive and inclusive work environment by organising team-building activities and celebrations
  • Support on administrative needs covering a broad range of operational requirements; including coordinating events, supporting recruitment activity and onboarding of new colleagues.
