Job Opportunity: AIM Hallmarks Programme Assistant

AIM Job Vacancy: AIM Hallmarks Programme Assistant

2 days a week, fixed term for one year initially, £20,000 pa pro rata

AIM is looking for a confident, well-organised assistant to support AIM staff in the delivery of the AIM Hallmarks programme. This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a flexible, part-time, home-based role to work with AIM’s energetic staff team and high-profile Council, to help deliver this ambitious programme to support museums and enable them to prosper.

AIM works hard to support its 1000+ members – some of the UK’s most innovative, resourceful and passionately-run museums and heritage organisations. This is an exciting time for AIM: our small, friendly staff team is expanding and we have a high-profile, challenging project to deliver.

Your strengths will be in:

*Excellent organisational skills, and an ability to work on different projects at the same time while maintaining attention to detail

*A positive, can-do attitude and a friendly and approachable manner

*Reliability and the capacity to work on your own and on your own initiative, as well as supporting colleagues

The Programme Assistant will have particular responsibility for project managing the production of online publications and resources and publicising the programmes, as well as providing general support and administrative assistance to the Assistant Director who leads on delivery of the programme. The Programme Assistant will also be expected to support other AIM programmes and activities as required. For more information about AIM visit www.aim-museums.co.uk

This is a new position with a fixed-term contract for one year in the first instance. AIM staff all work from home. To enable frequent meetings with the Assistant Director (who is based in Newark in Nottinghamshire), the Coordinator will need to be within an hour’s travelling time of London, Newark or York (or be prepared to travel in their own time). Hours can be worked flexibly, subject to our agreement, but we would prefer to appoint someone who would like to spread their working time across the week, ideally over four or five days.

Deadline for applications: 10am on Monday 14 March 2016.

Interviews will be in Birmingham on Monday 21 March 2016.
