Your profile
You will have demonstrable experience of delivering high quality administrative support, preferably in the higher education sector. You should have a demonstrable interest in the field of curation or museums.

You will be highly organised and have significant demonstrable experience of creating and updating databases and spreadsheets, working with budgets and experience of producing reports.  You will be experienced in clerking meetings, managing day to day expenditure and acting as a key point of contact for administrative queries.

You will be an excellent communicator, comfortable liaising with museum professionals, and be confident in organising internal and external facing events, meetings and travel arrangements as well as supporting the needs of multiple stakeholders. You will thrive working both independently and as part of a team.
