We have a vacancy for a Great Pilgrimage 90 Project Manager to join The Royal British Legion’s Commemorative Events Team (CET).
The purpose of the role is to ensure that the Great Pilgrimage 90, which will be the biggest membership event in our history, is robustly project managed, ensuring delivery on time and in scope. You will work closely with the CET, who are responsible for the delivery of key aspects of the wider programme on 8 August 2018, as well as key internal and external stakeholders.
We are recreating the1928 pilgrimage to World War One battlefields for thousands of Legion members. A decade after the end of WW1, veterans and war widows visited the battlefields of the Somme and Ypres before marching to the Menin Gate in Ypres on 8 August 1928. On 8 August 2018, two representatives from every Royal British Legion branch community will carry their standards along the same route in Ypres to the Menin Gate, representing an entire generation that served defending their country.
This role is fixed-term until September 2018.
