VECO Vietnam is looking for an Event Officer to coordinate the smooth operation of two cycling races in Vietnam.

I. Background

VECO Vietnam is the Vietnamese country office of the Belgian-based International non-governmental organisation Vredeseilanden. VECO Vietnam’s main focus lies in sustainable agriculture and food safety.

In 2017, VECO Vietnam will host two major fundraising and awareness-raising events targeting the Belgian public. Developed by VECO Belgium in partnership with VECO Vietnam, the events will take the form of two bicycle races named “ Vredeseilanden Classics”. These sportive events will take place in April and October 2017. After raising funds at home to support VECO’s international projects, two groups of about 30 persons will fly to Vietnam for an unforgettable bike journey through the regions where VECO operates. They will visit VECO’s project sites, touristic areas and, most importantly, enjoy the culture, nature and people of Vietnam before returning as VECO ambassadors in Belgium. The sites and itineraries have already been pre-identified during a two-week prospection mission carried out in 2016.

In order to finalise the preparations of the events and to ensure the smooth operation of the “Classics”, VECO Vietnam is looking for a qualified professional (Vietnamese) for the position of Event Officer. The Event officer will be based in Hanoi, at VECO Vietnam’s national office. The position will require extensive travelling in the North of Vietnam before and during the Classics.

II. Position summary

Following up on VECO’s 2016 identification mission, the Event Officer will ensure the thorough preparation, follow-up and implementation of the activities related to the Vietnam Bike Classics. The Event Officer will work in close collaboration and coordination with Classics Coordinators in Belgium and VECO Vietnam’s Project Manager.
