This is a unique opportunity for an experienced Project Coordinator to join us at an extraordinarily exciting moment in our 180 year history, as we seek to grow student numbers and create an entirely new academic vision, housed in part in a new landmark building at our Battersea site. Having received an unprecedented £54m grant from the Government and with plans to launch a £100m public campaign in 2018 for scholarships, faculty positions and bricks and mortar, there could not be a more exciting time to join the College.

As the Project Coordinator in the Vice-Chancellor’s Office, you will play a critical role in realising this vision by pro-actively supporting a number of projects being undertaken throughout the College. Current projects include strategic workforce planning and major capital projects at the College’s Battersea and Kensington sites. The Project Coordinator will also be required to provide full administrative and secretarial support for the Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer to enable them to undertake the full range of their activities efficiently. This will include anticipating and identifying support requirements in response to changing needs or circumstances, taking action, checking and referring as necessary. The post-holder will have responsibility for ensuring that all necessary information regarding projects within the College is kept up to date on the intranet and website, and liaise effectively with staff in Communications & Marketing to ensure all communications from the VCO contain correct and current information.

It is essential that applicants for this role have proven work experience as a Project Coordinator or in a similar role in project management, from conception to delivery. Experience of working as a personal or executive assistant is also an essential requirement. The successful candidates will have excellent organisational skills, including multitasking and time-management, as well as strong communication skills and the ability and initiative to work independently.

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 14 August 2018.
