We are hiring: Programme Officer – Researcher Development

We are seeking a proactive and professional Programme Officer to support the next phase of our Researcher Development programme. Working alongside the Programme Manager, the post holder will support the delivery of one of the four priorities in our new five year strategy: “to create an environment that supports Wales’ current and future experts”.  This is an exciting opportunity to truly impact on the future of higher education and research in Wales. Having received additional funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) in support of our new strategy, this role would suit someone with the drive to shape and grow one of our major programmes, and who enjoys working flexibly with a dynamic and supportive team.  

We are looking to employ someone permanently and on a full time basis. We have a number of different ways that our staff work their hours flexibly that we would be happy to discuss with you.

LSW supports active Welsh learners at all levels. Fluency in Welsh is not a requirement of this post, but the ability to communicate in Welsh is desirable and a willingness to learn is essential.

Deadline for applications: midnight on 20th January 2024.

Interviews have been scheduled between 9am and 5pm on Thursday 1st February.

If you would like more information before deciding whether to apply, please contact Dr Barbara Ibinarriaga Soltero (applications@lsw.wales.ac.uk) to arrange an informal discussion with the Programme Manager.
