What’s the job?

Senior Event Manager, Forums

Where do I work?

Tortoise Head Office, London (22 Berners Street) plus some flexibility to work remotely 1-2 days per week (pending Covid regulations).

Why are we here?

We’re building a different type of newsroom, for a slower, wiser news.  Now more than ever it’s important to have calm, clear journalism you can trust. We’re not chasing breaking news, but revealing what’s driving it. Built to cover stories not as they happen, but when they’re ready.  Where everyone has a seat at the table. Tortoise sets out to bring people together to try and make sense of the world.  We’re here to build journalism that lasts. 

At Tortoise, we don’t take ads. We don’t chase eyeballs or sell data. Instead, we work with partners to build bespoke products and communications solutions built on Tortoise’s code of journalistic values of organised listening, independence and openness.

We work with responsible and courageous leaders across all industries willing to back a new form of journalism, enable the public debate, share their expertise and communicate their point of view.

What’s my personal contribution?

We are building membership-driven business networks for C-suite executives and policy leaders. Our business forums are already attracting the highest profile CEOs who run some the world’s most influential organisations. Supported by world-class industry research, our members pay to access peer-to-peer discussion forums, networking dinners and roundtables. We are quickly building a reputation for providing distinctive and influential events that attract extremely high calibre members – the high-touch, executive experience we deliver is fundamental to maintaining this reputation.

Your role will be to lead event delivery and logistics from start to finish across a portfolio of in-person CEO Forums held at the Rothschild estate in Waddesdon, regular digital roundtables, networking dinners and pop-up events at key global meetings such as Davos and COP. Our events range in size, but all require a sophistication and eye-for-detail that we have become known for. As we grow we may also need to identify new venues and new ways of delivering our forums, which may include international opportunities, and you will play a significant role in scoping and delivering on this ambition.

Beyond the Forums, Tortoise also has an established and growing events business, most recently launching KITE Festival in Oxfordshire which received stellar reviews in national titles such as the Guardian and Telegraph. There will undoubtedly be lots of opportunities to support our wider events team as we grow these events too.
