We are seeking to appoint a Conference and Events Co-ordinator to work in our Conference Office. This role supports the College’s conference business as well as administering internal events such as teaching room bookings and College dinners.

Like all Oxford colleges, Merton College is a self-governing institution. The Governing Body determines the strategic direction of the College and the primary objective of the College is education.

This activity provides the College with income that is used to help fund the academic objectives of the College.

The successful candidate should have experience of delivering excellent customer care, as well as possessing excellent communication, organisational and client liaison skills, with a high level of attention to detail. He/she should be able to work flexibly as a member of a small team and have excellent IT skills.

The salary for full-time appointment is £21,000 to £25,000, depending upon experience.

Excellent benefits include:

  • membership of the University of Oxford Staff Pension Scheme;
  • private medical cover;
  • 25 days' holiday per year (excluding bank holidays); and
  • free car parking.

If you have any questions regarding the role, please contact the Head of Conference and Accommodation.

The closing date for applications is 12:00 noon on Thursday 2 March 2017.
