We're looking for an Events Executive to join our busy and collaborative Marketing team in a fast paced and exciting 12-month fixed term role.

RS UK & I is a product and services solutions provider with a focus on helping industrial players access the right products where and when they need them, keeping operations moving and maintaining safety across a variety of industrial settings.

This role would suit someone who is already at this level or a person wanting to step up from an Events Assistant position.

You will be arranging our attendance at several trade shows, awards ceremonies and site-based, customer-focused events across the year as well as managing our sponsorship programmes end-to-end.

You will also collaborate closely with a wide range of stakeholders across various departments to project manage these best-in-class events that showcase our services and solutions offering and be responsible for their successful delivery.

What you will do...

Supporting the PR, Events and Communications Manager and the Senior External Communications Manager, the activities you will undertake include:
  • Writing and managing the delivery of external communications around each event to customers, suppliers and stakeholders
  • Working with selected event agencies and third-party suppliers
  • Project planning and delivery
  • Working with the wider marketing community on display, lead generation, social, email and brand advertising
  • Budget planning and raising Purchase Orders

What we are looking for from you...
  • Background in events
  • Strong attention to detail and organisational skills
  • Confident communicator
  • Good time management and ability to work in a fast-paced, agile environment
  • Willingness to travel as occasional overnight stays are a requirement of this role
  • Knowledge of Word, Excel and Outlook
  • Excellent written and spoken English

RS...who are we?

At RS we've been solving engineering problems for over 80 years: big ones, small ones, easy and difficult ones. We turn the 'what ifs' into the 'why nots', the impossible into the possible.

Our purpose? Making amazing happen for a better world

We offer service and product solutions. We send out a parcel every 2 seconds, to over 130 countries. We provide over 700,000 in-stock and over 3 million unstocked products to more than 1.2 million customers.

We want people like you, as you are curious about things, you like doing things differently and in a human way with empathy. Because that's exactly how we partner with people - our customers, suppliers, colleagues, and communities - to solve problems.

We'll also invest in your development and wellbeing - because building a more diverse and inclusive culture, being ethical, responsible, and committed to our Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) action plan is at the heart of everything we do.

Come and join us and over 2000 colleagues here in the UK - and we'll help you to think big, do more and unleash your brilliance, so you do amazing things too.


At RS, as well as the usual employee benefits you'd expect from a FTSE listed company, we've just introduced several new Family Friendly Policies including:
  • Help for people to take control of ongoing Health conditions such as diabetes or asthma.
  • Support for Neurodiverse colleagues and families with neurodiverse members.
  • Support for Women at different life stages from streamlined fertility support through to diagnosis and monitoring of both endometriosis and menopause.
  • Helping our LGBTQ+ community through enhanced coverage for trans colleagues.

Are you ready to explore the possibilities?
