Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and its members. With a passion to promote a wider public appetite and interest in architecture through its website, exhibitions, talks and four million-strong collections, the RIBA has led the profession since its foundation in 1834, and continues to lead as architects face the challenges of the 21st century.
We are now looking for a Project Co-ordinator to join the Education department, which plays a pivotal role in supporting RIBA Academic Member Schools, as well as Student and Associate members, both here in the UK and overseas. The overall aim of this role is to develop and expand the RIBA's collaborative work across these academic communities, both existing and potential, to support the education of future architects.
Coordinating seminars, workshops and special projects for UK and international schools, as well as carrying out visits, you will help to raise the profile of RIBA services and benefits, supporting teaching, research and practice. In addition, you will support students throughout their studies and after graduation by arranging debates, events and inter-school projects for up-and-coming young practitioners, further improving the RIBA's relationships with the Member Schools.
Delivering against objectives for professional education, you will be involved with the organisation of all events/activities relating to the validation panel, as well as supporting colleagues in assessing the eligibility of Memberships on a quarterly basis.
With demonstrable experience of working with academic communities, be it a higher education institution, professional/statutory body, architect practice or in an environment that is connected to the design and delivery of architecture, you will possess a good level of knowledge relating to higher education procedures, as well as architectural education in the UK, Europe and overseas. With an excellent command of the English language, both written and spoken, you will act as ambassador for the RIBA at schools, presentations, seminars and conferences so willl be required to travel - sometimes out of office hours and from time to time internationally.
Interested? Then why not apply by completing an application pack and returning it along with your CV and covering letter by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post: RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1B 1AD for the attention of David Gloster, Director of Education.
