ACTION CHALLENGE UK was set up to create and organise exciting challenge events worldwide for charity and corporate clients. Over the last 10 years the company has sent thousands of individuals on a range of adventure challenges, from cycle rides across Borneo and the Patagonian Andes, to trekking in the Moroccan deserts and across the mountains of Mongolia and raised millions for charities the world over. We are at a very exciting stage in our development, where we are increasing staff numbers and managing significantly higher profile clients. We are looking for the right people to join our small but enthusiastic team and assist in its further development.
The full time salary banding for this post is starting at £24,000 inclusive of London Weighting (plus international travel) and depending on experience.
Preliminary stages of setting up events
Secondary stages of a challenge, during or on an event
We are looking for a graduate who has travel industry experience, a real eye-for-detail and is familiar with liaising with overseas operators. You will be aware of the range of components that make up overseas events, the levels of planning that needs to be reached and identification of risks and contingencies that make up successful events for large groups in foreign countries.
You will be commercially astute with the ability to question and challenge what could be accepted at face value by others, whilst negotiating on behalf of Action Challenge to enhance the specification or lower the cost of an event. We would require proof of organisational and time management skills, the ability to juggle many balls at a time, the ability to prioritise workloads and to work with initiative and real self motivation. All this will play an important role in candidate selection.
Our clients include charities and companies as diverse as Scope, Barretstown, The British Heart Foundation, The British Red Cross, Barnardo's, Concern, MAG, ICT, Irish Heart Foundation, Phones4U, The Citizens Foundation, Fighting Blindness, The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths, International Childcare Trust, Marsh & McLennan, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, NCH Ireland, Orange, Sense, Sense International, Shelter, St. Andrews Hospice, Sue Ryder Care, WellChild, White & Case, Wragge & Co., and many more.
