Uncomfortable Oxford: Oxford Administrator placement
Uncomfortable Oxford has been researching the uncomfortable history and legacies of Oxford’s past since 2018, and has developed many trails and walking tours around the city to make those narratives more accessible. As the organisation is growing to cover more locations and external collaborations, we seek an Oxford Administrator to look after the day-to-day task of running the routine activities of Uncomfortable Oxford.
These include (but are not limited to) organising the schedule for the tours; publishing events and tickets on eventbrite; advertising tours and activities through the newsletter, liaising with the guide manager, finance manager, social media coordinator, and booking officer; interviewing and recruiting new guides (including right to work and contracts); as well as organising practice and content training sessions for the guides.
The Oxford Administrator will work with the co-directors of Uncomfortable Oxford, finding new synergies between the organisation's routine activities and new endeavours such as festivals, public events, or institutional collaborations. The successful applicant will develop tools for running a small social enterprise and developing partnerships with the local community.
Skills, knowledge or experience needed:
The successful applicant will show the ability to work independently and qualities of leadership, as well as good organisation and communication skills. The administrator will also have good managerial qualities and show enthusiasm for teamwork. As the Oxford administrator, the applicant will be introduced to the wider activities, projects, and ethos of Uncomfortable Oxford, and have an in-depth knowledge of the organisation. While working in Oxford and with the organisation’s local and academic partners, the administrator will act as a representative of the organisation
The duration of the placement will be 6 months part-time, up to 2.5 days a week. Most of the placement can be done remotely with occasional visits to Oxford.
The placement will ideally start in mid-January 2022 and run to mid-July 2022 (part-time).
