The opportunity:

The Institute for Academic Development are looking for an experienced and self-directed events management professional to support the Future Leaders Fellows Development Network. 

The Future Leaders Fellows Development Network is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The network will support over 500 future leaders and early career researchers and innovators to form cohorts, develop leadership and engage with the UKRI. The Network is based in 9 industrial and Higher Education Institutions (University of Edinburgh, Cardiff University, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Leeds, School of Advanced Study University of London, Vertical Future, University of Cambridge, University of Glasgow, University College London) as well as additional external partners who support the delivery of our network activities. 

Events are dynamic, flexible, complex and designed in a bespoke fashion. The post-holder will provide support to the Fellows and other stakeholders of the project. The role will require some UK travel in support of network activity and events (typically one to two trips per month, spread unevenly across the year).

This post is full-time (35 hours per week), based in the Institute for Academic Development. We operate under a hybrid working policy (hybrid working on a non-contractual basis, that combines a mix of remote and regular on-campus working). FLFDN team members are required to be on campus one or two days a week. 

The Institute for Academic Development is located in Edinburgh’s beautiful Old Town. We are a medium-sized support service department of 45–50 staff based in a modern University complex, just off Holyrood Road. We are just a 5-10 minute walk from the central Waverley train station and Princes Street area, thus have excellent bus and train link access.
