The TEG Coordinator is pivotal to this group, organising and recording the committee’s quarterly meetings, running the day to day financial operation, supporting the delivery of the group’s research and events and maintaining records.

This part time freelance post supports and reports to TEG’s Chair, working closely with them and the rest of the committee to coordinate the group’s activities. The successful candidate will have excellent administrative and communication skills and pay close attention to detail.
