Senior Executive Officer, Public Education

Founded in 1998, the Woolf Institute's mission is to further the understanding between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in order to serve the greater public good. The Institute supports three types of activities: academic research, teaching, and public education. We are now looking for a Senior Executive Officer to assist in the implementation of the Public Education/Policy strategy, including the design, marketing and delivery of income generating programmes.

We are looking for someone who will bring enthusiasm, commitment, a strong work ethic, and public education and/or policy experience. For the candidate, there is an exciting opportunity to forge a key role in a supportive environment during the Woolf Institute’s transition into its next phase of growth and development as it takes possession of a new purpose-built facility in the heart of Cambridge (from September 2017).

Public Education/policy at the Institute consists of developing and marketing policy-related projects, such as the recent Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life and drawing on current research projects within the Institute; designing, marketing, delivering, and evaluating public education and training courses; organizing seminars and conferences in Cambridge and elsewhere related to the practical, communal and faith aspects of interfaith relations. Experience of the job will entail particular focus on Muslim/non-Muslim relations and you will need to be able to commute easily to the Cambridge area and travel within the UK.

How to apply: To apply for the role, please send your CV along with a covering letter detailing how you meet the job description and the names and e-mail addresses of two work related referees to Claire Curran (cc640@cam.ac.uk) by Monday the 12th September.

Salary: £35,000 gross annual salary plus generous pension scheme

Closing Date: 12th September 2016
