Holyrood Events is looking for a motivated team player with an interest in policy and politics, and who has an excellent attention to detail to join our team of Event Producers. The Producer will lead on researching and curating a portfolio of events in a variety of formats, such as conferences, round tables, breakfast briefings and party conference fringe events.

Holyrood’s events are largely in-person, but occasionally hybrid or virtual. This is a multifaceted role within the events team, majoring on research, stakeholder, and project management. N.b. this is not an operations role - event operations are managed by the event manager.

Holyrood’s events tackle topical issues around Scottish public policy and are typically aimed at a political or public and third sector audience. The Producer will build on the success of annual events, and also research and create new event programmes.

The Event Producer has oversight of each event from pre-event research and feasibility analysis, through kick off, to post event evaluation; and is responsible for writing innovative, engaging, and articulate copy to describe and promote events and their content. The Event Producers will work to secure industry leading speakers, then brief and manage speakers and other partners in the run up to and on the event day and post event.

The Event Producer will work in partnership with the Marketing, Events Operations and Sales teams to ensure that the events within the portfolio run smoothly to project timelines and generate revenue to meet predefined budgets. The event producer is responsible for working with clients to ensure their contribution is of the highest quality. The post holder will be responsible for managing and maximising engagement with specialist expert steering groups for one or more topics.

Using the relationships built with event partners and high-profile speakers, the Event Producer will work to enrich event content-led marketing by linking relevant policy announcements, thought leadership commentary and research, to help attract delegates and sponsors to our events.

Our live events programme and past events are available to view on our website.


Holyrood Events is Scotland’s leading provider of public sector events. Our portfolio of events explore topical issues and make complex subjects accessible, informative and educational. There is a huge amount of interest in policy and politics but beyond the interest, people want to meet and discuss the issues that matter – Holyrood’s events meet this need, in-person and online. Our devolved policy events offer niched discussion and are complimented by larger scale public sector summits and conferences.

Holyrood Communications includes Holyrood Magazine, Scotland’s fortnightly political and current affairs magazine that keeps people informed with its award-winning and thought-provoking editorial. Holyrood is frequently quoted within the Scottish Parliament as a source of reliable information and political debate. It is the most widely read publication amongst MSPs and is influential in their decision-making (source: Ipsos MORI).

Holyrood is part of Total Politics Group, which is the trading name of Political Holdings Ltd.
