We have an excellent opportunity for an Administrative Assistant to support the development of the Asia Research Institute (ARI) and provide administrative support and advice to the Director of ARI.
The School of Politics Asia Research Institute brings together our world leading research and expertise concerning the major sustainable development challenges in Asia through engagement with practitioners and our partners in the region. This role is integral to the day-to-day running of the Institute, supporting the Director and as well as building relationships with academic colleagues and professional services teams in the School of Politics and across the University.
You will be a key point of contact for internal and external queries, updating the ARI website and coordinating and promoting events hosted by ARI both in person and virtually, providing an efficient service to all stakeholders. This role also has administration responsibilities related to procurement, finance, and data management which support ARI’s activities and objectives.
Along with your excellent communication skills and an ability to build working relationships, you will be able to work independently and prioritise your workload effectively, showing flexibility and willingness to adapt to learn new skills and procedures as required by changing University procedures and legislation.
You must have attention to detail and demonstrable IT knowledge, and it would be desirable if this included experience of using online organisational and communication tools and/or social media and event marketing platforms. You will have a vocational qualification (NVQ2 Administration with Secretarial Skills) or equivalent, and experience of an office/administrative environment or work experience in a relevant role.
This post is part time (8 hours) and is fixed term for 12 months. Working hours will be agreed with the successful candidate with opportunity for hybrid working where circumstances allow.
