London College of Fashion (LCF) seeks a proven administrator to provide a key support function for the delivery and reporting of Knowledge Exchange activity across the college.

Knowledge Exchange is one of three priority areas, along with teaching and research, in the academic mission of University Arts London (UAL). Through Knowledge Exchange, we engage with the wider world in collaborative activities to achieve creative impact on the fashion industry and enrich the student experience.

As a Knowledge Exchange Administrator, your remit will include:

  • Leading on administrative processes for LCF’s internal and external Knowledge Exchange reporting;
  • Assisting with the planning and implementation of Enterprise Knowledge Exchange activities, including preparing Power Point presentations, and supporting events and workshops for students, alumni and external businesses;
  • Providing support for the development of new projects through researching funding opportunities and contributing to the development of funding bids by coordinating contributions from staff and external university and industry partners;
  • Providing administrative support, including project tracking and reporting, keeping up to date filing systems and preparing relevant project information as and when required.

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.

You will offer extensive administrative experience, including providing support across large and varied teams, preferably within a Higher Education Institute.  You will have knowledge of conducting both primary and secondary research and experience of using the Internet as a source for searching for and gathering relevant research information. Demonstrable experience of planning and preparation of small-medium scale events is also required.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension scheme and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available. If you have any queries about this role, you may contact the LCF Staffing Team at
