This post has been created to assist the Department with the organisation of a series of events in the field of Pharmacology and Entrepreneurship. The postholder’s prime responsibility is to ensure the efficient management of a portfolio of seminars, including a major annual symposium. The postholder will work with Professor Mallory Factor, Visiting Senior Fellow in Entrepreneurship and Politics, and will formerly report to Professor Nigel Emptage, Head of Department.
The postholder will assume full responsibility for the administration of the events, specifically financial and operational management. This includes supporting Professor Factor with purchasing, sponsorship, marketing, speaker liaison, venue and catering arrangements, and arranging and participating in meetings/events with partners and funders. This will involve working with key individuals from the University, other institutions, industry partner organisations and sponsor(s). The postholder will ensure the project is delivered successfully to time/budget, and administrative aspects are completed to the satisfaction of the department and funder.
