This is an excellent opportunity for a highly efficient and effective assistant to play a central part in a new stage of our organisation’s development. A pro-active, enthusiastic, can-do person with demonstrable administrative, communications and events management experience, you will ensure that all of the Consortium communications are high-quality, effective and accessible.
