The Society undertakes a wide range of activities, including research funding, academic publishing, awards, policy research and advocacy, and a growing portfolio of events — including a long-running and respected programme of public lectures given by leading historians.

More recently, we have extended the range and frequency of our events (online, physical and hybrid) to include: panel discussions, day conferences, training and research workshops, visits to History departments across the UK, and partnership events. The Society is keen to increase further the kinds of events we offer to our members and the wider community.

The RHS Events Officer (part-time) role has been created to help us realise these ambitions, and to provide expert operational support in the planning, promotion and running of our current and future events programme. We therefore seek an experienced and highly capable events professional to work with the Society’s academic specialists, with the latter responsible for developing a programme that meets the interests of our membership.
