JOB VACANCY 


The Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies is looking for a part-time (0.5) Operations Officer, to take responsibility for oversight of the non-academic aspects of managing the Centre, including financial strategy, fundraising, and communications.

The aim of this re-organisation is to let the Director carry out his/her own academic work and focus on the vision, strategy and academic function of the Centre. The new OO will take on the oversight of other areas that have hitherto been the direct responsibility of the Director.

The post is 0.5 time for 2 years, with an extension of contract by mutual agreement if funding permits. The OO will work for part of every working day.

Salary £37,000 pro rata. Start date 1st May 2017. Apply before 1st March 2017.
