Job opportunity: Network Development Officer

Part time (0.4) for 6 months
Flexible working hours
£20,130 pro rata (£4,026 actual salary over 6 months)

Last year, the Learned Society of Wales launched a national, cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary network for Early Career Researchers (ECRs).

The network now numbers over 750 members, and we are recruiting a Network Development Officer to take this project to its next stage. We’re looking for someone who can help us:

  • Build on two successful events to deliver our next set of online seminars and networking sessions
  • Develop the network’s reach and presence, bringing in participants from a wider range of disciplines
  • Establish a clear identity for the network
  • Ensure that we complement other institutions’ work to support ECRs

ECRs are encouraged to apply for this post. The ideal candidate will have experience of working in higher education, an understanding of the research sector in Wales and experience of organising events. They will be confident in reaching out and establishing new relationships, and communicating clearly and engagingly with a diverse audience.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 28 April.
