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 currently seeking a self-motivated, flexible individual with wide-ranging administration experience. You will provide support for our busy office in Newcastle upon Tyne, responsible for promoting architecture and supporting the RIBA’s Chartered, Graduate and Student members across the East of England.
With strong organisational skills and a substantial working knowledge of MS Office, you will be a key member of the team and contribute to the successful delivery of RIBA services and activities in the North East of England. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential, as you will deal with a wide range of enquiries, communicate with members and assist in organising quality events to profile architecture and the profession. You will also be required to provide support at public-facing events. You must also be able to travel throughout the region and to other RIBA offices as required.
