Radcliffe Humanities

Faculty of Philosophy: Radcliffe Humanities, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford

Grade 8: £39,992 - £47,722 with a discretionary range to £52,132 p.a.

The Faculty of Philosophy is seeking a full-time Senior Administrator 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). Both institutes are entering a period of rapid expansion and the Senior Administrator (FHI and GPI) will be an integral part of establishing and embedding complex operational procedures. This post is fixed-term for 3 years from the date of appointment, with the possibility of extension, subject to funding.

The successful candidate will be responsible for effectively putting into practice FHI and GPI plans, particularly in the areas of finance, personnel and administration. She or 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.
