Whilst situated in Sussex, the Centre brings together writers and scholars from around the globe and is seeking to appoint an administrator with Conference management experience.
The assistant’s role is crucial in helping to maintain an environment for scholarly activity (regional, national and international), including international conferences/symposia, exhibitions, public lectures and seminars. In addition the post holder will maintain (in collaboration with the Director) the Centre’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages, and will assist in the production of the Sussex Centre Newsletter (every two months) and its twice yearly journal Gramarye.
An experienced administrator, with an interest in the subject area, you will ideally have previous experience of event administration, and ideally editing and publishing expertise, in an academic context. Well-developed written and interpersonal skills will be supported by the ability to utilise IT effectively. A flexible approach to working hours will be required during the fixed term contract to meet the changing demands of the project.
