Marketing & Events Officer – come work with Upstream (deadline 7 Feb)

One of the ways Upstream knits our target businesses and organisations together is through events; these can range from a start-up clinic with experts and selected start-ups, sector specific meetups (e.g. creative, deep tech), monthly talks on raising investment, pitching and around key dates in the calendar e.g. London Tech week. Digital marketing is key to growing and keeping in touch with our community and stakeholders so solid social media experience or the willingness to learn quickly is critical.
