You will be working closely with the Chair of IDEAL, Professor Peter McCulloch and a small team of researchers. The group meets weekly to conduct current business. There is a quarterly meeting of a governing Council of experts, normally conducted virtually, and an annual research meeting.  You will be responsible for managing communications, organising meetings and keeping minutes, as well as day to day management of the finances of the group. You will liaise with the group members responsible for the Website and Social Media accounts over publicity and communications via these routes, and will manage the website and participate in sending communications under their direction.  Suitable candidates with an interest and appropriate qualifications and experience may be able to take a more direct role in planning and delivering some of our projects. 

You will be educated to A-level standard or equivalent with previous experience of project management, with the ability to plan and prioritise to ensure deadlines are met. You will have experience and appropriate training in administration and have basic project management and finance management skills. You will be comfortable working with light touch supervision and using your initiative, and will demonstrate accuracy and attention to detail in your work.  You will have excellent communications skills both oral and in writing, and the self-confidence to conduct conversations with senior academics and other collaborators. Experience of the processes of medical research and/or Evidence Based Medicine would be an advantage, as would an interest in participating in development of our studies.
