Centre Administrator

University College London - UCL Institute of Education - Department of Education, Practice and Society

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £34,635 - £41,864 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The Department of Education, Practice and Society (EPS) has specialists from a wide variety of disciplines who undertake research to support education throughout the life course by contributing to economic, social and political debate as well as development in societies, nationally and internationally. The Centre for Learning and Life Chances (LLAKES) is a research centre, funded by the ESRC since 2008, and based at the UCL Institute of Education. Following a positive mid-term review of the Centre’s work after five years, the Centre was granted a further five years of funding by the ESRC and was subsequently granted an extension until the end of 2018. It is currently putting in place plans for the continuation of its work after the end of its ESRC Centre grant. The Centre conducts research into the role of education and skills in promoting economic competitiveness and social cohesion and in mediating the interactions between these two domains. 

You will support the research, training and consultancy activities of Centre through accurate and timely gathering and synthesis of information, and the sharing of this information with colleagues, management, funders and potential funders as required. This will include: monitoring the centre’s budget; administering the submission of new funding bids; liaising with external partners and Centre stakeholders, including officials in government departments and international agencies; and organising Centre conferences and seminars.

The post is funded until 31/12/2018 in the first instance.

The successful candidate will have excellent administrative skills, with experience of project administration; experience of preparing, editing and formatting text for publication; and excellent record keeping skills. S/he will be highly numerate with experience of financial administration, including the ability to create budgets, then monitor and review budgetary expenditure. S/he will also have good interpersonal and communication skills, both written and verbal and be able to work flexibly in a team.
