To qualify…  You should be a Communications Assistant, Communications Administrator, Office Administrator, Marketing Administrator, Careers Assistant, Careers Administrator, or similar, with a CV that demonstrates:

  • Confident communication skills;
  • That you are well-organised.

An interest in science, technology, engineering and maths and/or education is advantageous to this role.

Joining a team of talented and enthusiastic people and working across a community that shares an important common purpose, the Communications Assistant / Office Administrator will be working in a dynamic environment that is really making a difference to all of our futures.
