Event Team Manager
New Wine is hiring!
Do you sense that God is asking you to make a change? Do you want to use your Event management experience and knowledge to work for a vision-led, faith-filled organisation?
We currently have a new vacancy for an Event Team Manager (permanent, full-time role).
New Wine continues to press into the vision that God has given us. We’re a network of leaders and a family of churches supported by a charity organisation that encourages and invests in churches and leaders for personal and church renewal. We work to encourage and enable the ministry of the Holy Spirit with the expectation of the signs and wonders that go with being a disciple of Jesus. We are excited about the part we play in seeing our nation changed via the local church.
This is an exciting time to join our organisation as we continue to grow and invest in Kingdom work. New Wine has been sharing our experience of the Spirit’s work since 1981. We’re now celebrating our 30th summer ‘United’ conference (at a brand-new venue in Peterborough from 2019) and launching Luminosity – an improved youth provision. We are also at the brink of implementing our new 5yr strategic plan, part of which is to further resource and support the vision of our key ‘United’ summer conference.
To enable that investment we need to further grow our National events team with some further Event Team management roles. This is an exciting role that will enable us to more fully support and grow the provision at United and Luminosity.
The successful candidate will have the right skills and experience, with a pro-active and positive attitude. They will need to be an excellent organisor and communicator, able to lead, motivate and develop others.

We aspire to the highest level of support, service and teamwork, working closely together to achieve this.
