Project Coordinator - Education
Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.
The RIBA is a global professional membership body, and a cultural organisation, driving excellence in architecture.
Location: 76 Portland Place London W1
Hours: 35 hours per week, 12 months fixed term contract to 30 June 2020 (may be extended)
This is an excellent opportunity to join the RIBA Education department, working as part of a team of 10 on a diverse range of awards and research events (including the RIBA Jencks award and Research Matters conference), visiting schools of architecture to support the RIBA Academic Membership scheme, and coordinating applications to the Membership Eligibility Assessment Panel (MeAP). The Project Coordinator - Education is line managed by the RIBA Director of Education, and is a key role for delivering departmental/RIBA income through subscriptions, MeAP application fees, RIBA membership subscriptions, and ticket sales. The Project Coordinator - Education may also be asked to organise and deliver special events and projects on an ad hoc basis (e.g. the Polyark international collaborative design project).
A successful candidate will be experienced in and knowledgeable about architectural education and practice, and understand the role of professional and/or statutory bodies in relation to architecture. They will be an articulate and informed representative and ambassador for the RIBA at meetings, seminars, conferences, training sessions etc., and have a good understanding of the context and complexity of higher education issues, procedures, and the political processes in the UK (and internationally) which impact on university education and professional practice.
They will also have an excellent understanding of RIBA's remit regarding architectural education and education providers, and developments in higher education generally. Using excellent written English, they will have experience in developing extended written work, including reports, minutes, departmental procedures, and project initiatives. Proficiency in a second world language and a good degree (or appropriate qualification) are desirable – and an enthusiasm for architecture very desirable. On an ad hoc basis, applicants should be willing and available to travel and work outside normal office hours (exceptionally for up to 5-10 working days away from London), and travel throughout the UK (and, exceptionally, internationally) when undertaking this role.
NB: the role may suit flexible working, by arrangement.
