We are currently recruiting for the following role:


Administrator and Executive Assistant   

Salary: £22,600 – £23,700             

To start: ASAP

Application deadline: 9am Monday 8 July    

Interviews: Monday 22 July                                    

The Administrator and Executive Assistant is a new position at the SMC.  It is a dual role, acting as PA to the Chief Executive Fiona Fox and taking responsibility for office admin to ensure the Science Media Centre runs smoothly.  The right candidate for this job will be someone with exceptional organisational skills, meticulous attention to detail, strong initiative and a clear head.  We’re looking for a resourceful individual who can do a hundred things at once and who will thrive on supporting and organizing a very busy and technically-challenged CEO in a fast-paced environment.  This is not a press office assistant role and it does not directly involve media work.  But we are an immersive office and everything you do will support the core work of the CEO and front-line staff of the Science Media Centre.
