Job Opening: CPE Project Manager
29 November 2012
Projects Manager – £25,000-£27,000 p.a. +pension
Founded in 1998, the Woolf Institute's mission is to further 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 Project Manager (open to job share) to help develop and manage our growing number of public education projects, housed in our Centre for Public Education (CPE). The contract for this position will initially be one year with the possibility of extension.
The new Projects Manager will help manage the development and delivery of a suite of current projects that are primarily focused on the training of practitioners in the public, charitable and private sectors. These projects have involved the NHS, police, schools, and community activists. The manager will also be responsible for exploring and developing new projects that bring together faith and secular groups with the broad aims of improving services for all and the development of stronger multi-faith and multi-convictional narratives in society. The Project Manager will work closely with the CPE Director and a part-time research associate and will also have access to other support staff.
We are looking for a flexible, dynamic person with a background in public health, education, and/or social action. The position requires someone who is committed to recognition of diversity, particularly in relation to faith and non-faith groups. The candidate(s) should have a post-graduate degree, skills in developing and marketing services, and ease with using and/or conducting applied research. Preferably, the candidate(s) should have experience working in the non-profit or public sectors or in community or international development. The person should also feel comfortable working within a fast-paced working environment, in an Institute with a strong academic focus, and as part of a small staff team, which requires both working independently and collaboratively. Finally, the successful candidate(s) will need to be able to commute easily to the Cambridge area.
To apply, please consult the fuller Job Description and send a cover letter, CV, and any relevant publications to Tina Steiner at The Woolf Institute, Wesley House, Jesus Lane, Cambridge CB5 8BJ. The applicant should also list in the letter names and e-mail addresses of two referees.
The deadline for applications is the 18th January 2013 and interviews will be conducted on the 30th January 2013.
