About us

Jisc is helping to ensure the UK remains at the forefront of innovation within UK education and research - by mobilising the very best people and technologies in the application of digital thinking, digital content and connectivity.

It's our vision to enable the UK to become the most digitally-advanced education and research nation in the world. It's a bold statement, but one that we're determined to fulfil.

We want Jisc to be a great place to work. A place where people make a difference to our members, feel valued and have fun - how we work is a vital part of that. Our values are our guiding principles. They define how we work and help us to do what we do so well. Our values are:

* Pride: We have pride in what we do but aren't arrogant or complacent

* Passion: Our passion drives everything we do

* Pace: We deliver at the right pace to meet the needs of our members and each other

* Trust: You can trust us to deliver on our promises

* Teamwork: We are one team and teamwork makes us better

About the role

We need a fantastic new team member who will deliver an administrative support service, with responsibilities for drafting agendas, taking minutes, and taking the initiative to follow up on action points. You will have a central role in the team, bringing everything together and ensuring things are completed as they should be.

You will take responsibility for organising meetings with our members and servicing several advisory committees, sub-committees and working groups. You will also co-ordinate Jisc Collections planned activities within the broader digital resources team, working with the library support services and marketing teams, particularly Jisc Events.

About you

We know that sometimes people can be put off applying for a job if they think they can't tick every box, but we realise the 'perfect candidate' doesn't exist. So, if you are excited about working for us, and think you can do most of what we are looking for, go ahead and apply. You could be exactly what we need!

We're ideally looking for someone with:

* Excellent administrative, writing and numerical skills.

* Substantial minute taking experience

* Great initiative

* The ability to draft and organise text and present information accurately in reports, with attention to detail.

* Excellent organisational and time management skills and an ability to balance multiple priorities in the face of competing deadlines.

Why work at Jisc?

* We're working towards being a pretty flexible organisation and our people having a good work/life balance is important to us. We focus on outputs and outcomes rather than presenteeism, so as long as you're delivering to our high standards and doing a great job, we are open to a variety of working arrangements.

* We're constantly learning and developing, and all our people have access to a comprehensive range of learning resources to help them achieve this.

* Our benefits are pretty good too - we offer 25 days holiday (plus 3 days Christmas closure), contribute a huge 18% to your 8% for your pension from day one, and can provide discounts with various IT suppliers, cycle to work schemes, season ticket loans, and generous parental leave arrangements (amongst many other things).


This role will be based in London.

Jisc is a geographically-distributed organisation and travel across the UK may be required at times.

At Jisc we celebrate diversity and know that it's critical for our success. We are continuing to drive an inclusive culture, so if you are great at what you do and embrace our values, we want to hear from you.

No agencies please.
