FHI is excited to invite applications for a full time Senior Administrator to work with the faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford with responsibility for overseeing the effective and efficient day-to-day non-academic management and administration of two of the Faculty’s research centres, the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI) and the recently established Global Priorities Institute (GPI).
We are entering a period of rapid expansion and the Senior Administrator will be an integral part of establishing and embedding complex operational procedures. The successful candidate will be responsible for effectively putting into practice our plans, particularly in the areas of finance, personnel and administration. S/he will provide comprehensive support in relation to HR matters in both institutes, will oversee the planning and management of their finances and will provide strategic advice on administrative matters.
This is a challenging role in rapidly expanding areas, requiring a proactive mindset, considerable initiative, intellectual ability and versatility and the readiness and flexibility to do the work required to best achieve the Institutes’ goals. It will also need excellent operational and organisational skills and significant experience of financial and personnel management. In addition it requires strengths in general management and in written and oral communication. The Senior Administrator will work largely independently, and will need to relate well to both academic and administrative staff at all levels.
Candidates should apply via this link. You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 20 April 2018.
