About the team/job
As part of the External Training Teams at EMBL Heidelberg and EMBL-EBI Hinxton, you will fulfill EMBL’s mission to provide exemplary training for the life sciences, making the laboratory the leading meeting place for biologists in Europe. Join the team that delivers a world-class programme of international conferences, courses and events. We offer an international working environment with superb benefits and facilities for staff.
We are looking for a Project Officer to join the team for 12 months as cover for Parental Leave. The Project Officer manages the budgets of the training teams at both sites and is the sole finance position in the teams; you will therefore need to be able to work independently whilst also working well alongside non-financial professionals. Your primary role will be to provide support to the management teams such that they have the information they need to make decisions for the programme. Additionally, you will be providing regular updates to senior management and directors, and offering day to day support in the team operations. As such, you must be adept at working effectively with financial and non-financial stakeholders at all levels of seniority.
