Events and Communications Coordinator (Part Time)

The Centre for Latin American Studies is inviting applicants to join our enthusiastic and professional team. This role is a great opportunity to use and develop administrative skills, while also having a big impact on the research and teaching conducted in an academic centre. The successful applicant will be based at the Centre's administrative home in the Alison Richard Building working alongside researchers and students to provide support for different tasks.

The Centre of Latin American Studies is a lively environment where PhDs work and MPhil students receive tuition. The successful applicant will work closely with the Centre Administrator on a daily basis providing general assistance and fielding enquiries.

Within the Centre, the post-holder will play a pivotal role, working together with the Centre Director, to ensure the smooth running of open seminars, lunchtime events and other academic, course-related or social events. This will include scheduling, liaising with event speakers, arranging refreshments and publicising these events.

The Centre also hosts several academic visitors each year and an annually appointed notable academic from Latin America, the Simón Bolívar Professor. The post holder will provide all visitors with general support on arrival when required, but will mainly assist the Simón Bolívar Professor providing pre- arrival advice and secretarial support throughout the year.

The general working hours are between the hours of 9am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, throughout the year. Attendance at the Monday evening Open Seminars during term-time is required. Exact working hours are to be agreed between the appointee and the Centre Administration.
