Updated: 8 months ago
Deadline: The position may have been removed or expired!

Falmouth University has a history of more than 100 years of creative thinking and design innovation. Established in 1902 as Falmouth School of Art, we have grown to become a digital innovation hub, delivering impact for lives and economies through the development of new knowledge, solutions, services and products. Today, our undergraduate and postgraduate courses represent the breadth of the creative industries, the fastest growing sector in the UK economy. Falmouth's specialisms will be key to future economic and cultural success both at a local and global level.

Our ambitious 2030 Strategy, 'Doing it for Real', is designed to deliver yet further growth in our student numbers and income through portfolio diversification, innovation, research and commercial ventures. It will establish Falmouth as the market leader for creative industries and entrepreneurship education over the next decade, capitalising on our considerable assets in innovation-led research and business incubation.


To help deliver our 2030 Strategy, we are now looking to recruit a Project Coordinator to join our Launchpad Programme.


This exciting opportunity has arisen within Falmouth University's Launchpad Programme. Launchpad is a proven, innovative postgraduate business incubation and acceleration programme which is creating a new generation of Cornwall-based companies in high-value and high-growth markets. The Launchpad methodology reverses the traditional model of business incubation as it builds new companies in response to specific known market demand. This approach significantly reduces the high failure rates associated with conventional start-up and business incubation and support models. 


The project coordinator will develop and manage administration services provided to staff and students. 


This post offers a great opportunity if you have extensive administrative experience, particularly in a project environment.  The successful candidate will have excellent organisational and IT skills, and the ability to work to tight deadlines.


This post is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)


We offer excellent facilities and benefits to our staff. These include generous holiday entitlements, contributory pension scheme, and training and development opportunities. Full details regarding employment benefits can be found on our careers site.


The closing date for this position is 12 January 2020.
