  • Collect and display information important to the department (such as our internal faculty and researcher-oriented website where all resources and support services are easily accessible, a Department-wide calendar of committee dates and deadlines, our organisational chart) and ensure good information flow across the Department.
  • Design and organise events for faculty, researchers, and the departmental staff.
  • Contribute to the preparation and development of activities and initiatives supporting the research strategy.


The ideal candidate for the position should have the following profile:

  • A demonstrably outstanding, driven, dedicated and enthusiastic results-driven organizer.

  • Ability to work effectively on multiple projects simultaneously and consistently meet deadlines.
  • Excellent command of the English language, with an ability to craft well-written messages on behalf of the team in a timely manner.
  • Experience of working in an international environment, an affinity to and empathy with academic research and education, and ideally experience in a similar position, preferably in a business school context, will be advantageous.
