This is an exciting opportunity to use your operational and project management experience to play a key strategic role in the administration and resource management of one of the world’s leading creative universities.

Reporting to the Director of College Administration, you will lead the Operations Team in the College, ensuring the strategic development of the resource and operational functions within the College relating to Finance, Timetabling, Site Administration and Staffing.

As a senior role within the College, a key aspect of this role will be to contribute to the long term strategic financial planning for the College and the development of the operations function ahead of the College’s move to Stratford in 2022.

London College of Fashion, part of University of the Arts London, is extremely proud to be a global leader in fashion education, research and consultancy. We are proud of the creative success of our students and much of our achievement is down to the dedication of our employees. You will play an important role in shaping future creative professionals within our team, and so impact on the future of many creative industries.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in one of the foremost creative universities in London and a global centre of fashion education. Join us as we embark on an exciting journey over the next three years and beyond. By 2022 London College of Fashion will consolidate our current six sites into one, in a move to a purpose-built new building in the Stratford Waterfront, as part of a new East Bank cultural hub in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

As we relocate all our cross London sites, we are interested to receive applications from candidates currently living or working in East London boroughs or wanting to join us to be part of this exciting move.

You will need significant relevant operational management experience, including staff management, with significant financial forecasting experience.

Demonstrable experience of providing management information and statistical modelling reports is also essential.

Project management skills are desirable.

If you can motivate and lead a team effectively, setting clear objectives and manage performance we would be delighted to hear from you.
