Interview date: TBC
Grade: 6
Hours: Full Time
Salary: £28,574 – £33,487 per annum

A person specification and job description are available to view on the UCL job listing page.

CLOSER, the home of longitudinal research, brings together eight world-leading longitudinal studies with participants born throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Our work maximises the use, value and impact of these, and other, longitudinal studies to help improve our understanding of key social and biomedical challenges.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the role of Project Officer at CLOSER who will support the Project Manager in the overall coordination and administration of the project and provide project management support to the Director and management team.

The role is instrumental for the successful delivery of the activities planned for the next year, and for preparing a bid for funding beyond 2019.

The CLOSER Project Officer will provide project management and administrative support to the CLOSER project.

The role will also involve delivering small projects, stakeholder management and working autonomously. You will work closely with the CLOSER Project Manager, as well as members of the management team and the CLOSER Director.

The post is available from October 2018 and is funded until 30 September 2019 in the first instance.

Key Requirements

We are looking for candidates with excellent administrative skills and experience of providing a comprehensive administration service to a team or project.

The candidate should have the ability to exercise initiative and work independently and experience of undertaking small projects.

You should have a highly organised approach to work with the ability to prioritise work ensuring deadlines are met.

Experience of working in an academic environment and an interest in social research, is not essential but would be an advantage.
