Tender Opportunity

Bude-Stratton Town Council are seeking to hire a creative Events Organiser to compose, promote and deliver next year’s Literary Festival.

We are looking for someone with a proven track record of successful events to create our inaugural Bude Literary Festival for May 2022. The chosen Event Organiser will be self-employed, hardworking and be able to demonstrate that they can meet strict deadlines.

As part of the application, you will provide an outline plan of a wondrous event which will last for a number of days, making use of the three main town council venues. You will also provide a figure for your personal fee and schedule of payment which will cover your time over the next year. The council will provide a budget for costs which must be strictly adhered to.

You will work closely with the Castle & Library Manager and hold timely meetings to show development and progression of the event. You will take and develop ideas and contacts previously made and weave these into a professionally, crafted, inclusive event that has something for everyone.

This is a chance to be a part of something special for Bude and to be the first to shape this yearly, and hopefully, an exceptional event for the town.

Please send your letter of interest, CV, brief outlined event plan and your suggested personal fee to Mark Berridge, Castle & Library Manager at mberridge@bude-stratton.go.uk

If you are selected for interview, you will be asked to give a detailed presentation of your event plan.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon on Thursday 3rd June 2021.
