AT THRESHOLD WE BELIEVE THAT MORE IS IN YOUTM
Our Purpose is to help people realise their potential through world class events.

We do this by:
Supporting individuals to go beyond what they feel is possible
Showing clients how they can fulfil their potential as responsible businesses
Enabling charities to maximise their fundraising and supporter engagement
Inspiring our employees to be the best versions of themselves

Last year our team of around 24 people lead the delivery of 35 events in 10 countries helping over 35,000 people realise what they are capable of. In the process our events raised over £16m for charity.

We’re looking for a new member to join our team.

Assist with management of website FAQs, event information guides and information platforms
Creating and managing event booking forms and promotional links
Support with participant data in the lead up to an event e.g. fulfilment of registration packs, transport bookings
Helping to prepare for the live events including creating information documents and organising kit
Live event support on Registration/Info desks (weekends)
Assisting in post event wrap-up, including sending lost property/trophies/medals and sorting kit

Excellent communication and customer service skills
Ability to multitask, prioritise and work to tight deadlines
