We believe fashion can have a broad and meaningful impact on our society, beyond the aesthetic qualities and passion it invokes in people. We are looking for a Special Projects Manager who will develop and manage a range of internal and external projects that will be designed specifically to demonstrate the importance of fashion and how it can drive change, build sustainable futures and improve lives in the wider community.

You’ll reach out to targeted external partners within disadvantaged environments, creating a range of collaborative projects that will use fashion as a vehicle for positive change. Your enthusiasm will secure funding – whatever that takes, from cash to premises – and the project content will inspire, educate and enhance employability. You’ll motivate and direct those who you work with, as well as harness relevant internal support and share your expertise and learnings to benefit other college-related projects.

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.

London College of Fashion is extremely proud to be a global leader in fashion education, research and consultancy. Much of its success is down to its dedicated employees, and you will play an important role in shaping future creative professionals, and impact on the future of so many creative industries. Join us as we embark on an exciting journey over the next four years and beyond. By 2022 London College of Fashion will move to the Stratford Waterfront, as part of a new cultural hub in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Degree educated, you exude a genuine delight in all things fashion-related. You recognise the benefits it can play in society and can use your exceptional project management skills and experience of working collaboratively within the industry to best effect. You’re keen share your skills through inspirational and creative educational projects and your belief in what you can do inspires those around you. All of this you balance with strong commercial aptitude, which includes great organisational, budgetary, communication and IT skills. It’s a lot to ask, but you’ll get out of it as much as you give. If you have any queries about this role, you may contact the LCF Staffing Team at vacancies@fashion.arts.ac.uk.

Interviews will be taking place on 4th and 5th June.
