Length of contract:
Full time / part time:
Wolfson College is seeking to appoint a PA to the President. The PA to the President is an important and rewarding role that encompasses a wide range of responsibilities and provides the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of College life.
Wolfson College is one of the largest graduate colleges in the University of Oxford, with over 600 students. It has a strong egalitarian and democratic ethos and is increasingly known as one of the most energetic, innovative, and welcoming scholarly communities in Oxford.
The ideal candidate will be aware of the transitional character of this new chapter in Wolfson’s unfolding history, and will appreciate that their role is likely to evolve in response to the needs of the new President. He or she will also be aware of the ebbs and flows of College life.
The PA will provide day-to-day secretarial and administrative support, including managing the President’s diary and correspondence, arranging social functions, acting as Secretary to the Fellowships and Memberships Committee, record management, and being the first point of contact for a variety of enquiries.
The successful candidate will be astute, well organised, diplomatic, discrete, utterly reliable and tenacious, with extensive PA experience at a similar level, and a full set of excellent secretarial, interpersonal and administrative skills. He or she will energetically and skilfully juggle multiple tasks, deal sensitively yet firmly with people at all levels and remain calm and tactful in challenging situations.
The closing date for applications is 15 November 2017 at noon. Interviews will be held on 12 December 2017.
