We are currently developing a new Holocaust Heritage and Learning Centre for the north of England at Huddersfield University, scheduled to open in Spring 2018.

The Administrative Officer will set up and manage the Holocaust Heritage & Learning Centre’s office systems and support our small team of staff and volunteers in delivering an efficient and effective service to users. We are looking for someone with considerable experience in a busy administrative role.  You will need to be a great organiser with experience of setting up and managing administrative systems, able to take initiative and prioritise your own workload while supporting our small team. This role involves communication with a wide range of people – Holocaust survivors, students, volunteers, academic colleagues, senior University staff, funders and external partners – so excellent communication skills and the ability to build strong working relationships are essential. You’ll need to be highly literate and numerate, with experience of financial systems and great attention to detail.  You’ll have highly developed IT skills and will be confident using social media. You will be the first point of contact for many customers and will need to uphold and promote the HSFA’s mission and values. The role is part time (18.5 hours per week) with the potential for an increase in hours after 12 months, subject to funding.
