The Fashion Innovation Agency (FIA) works with emerging technologies to help designers and brands change the way they make, sell or show their collections. The FIA is closing the gap between these industries through its understanding of the opportunities and challenges that exist. We are on a mission to rewire the industry and build truly digital designer businesses. Through our extensive network, the team initiates and facilitates partnerships to deliver projects that demonstrate use cases for emerging technologies that innovate current industry practice. The FIA is part of London College of Fashion, (LCF) and sits within the Business and Innovation unit. The FIA’s work is a fundamental part of LCF’s vision for Knowledge Exchange. It shares the findings of its projects with students and academic staff alike, shaping their understanding of the latest advancements in relevant technology. Our efforts strengthen LCF’s reputation as a leader within the Fashion-Technology sector. 

This role is to provide administrative and finance support to the FIA team to help ensure the successful delivery of the projects to clients and ensure that UAL processes and protocols are adhered to. As the FIA and enterprise teams also support externally funded projects there is a requirement for accurate and diligent record keeping and reporting, as well as adherence to financial procedures in line with external funders’ requirements. 

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.

You will need proven administrative experience and an interest in the fashion industry. It is vital that you have good organisational, communication and IT skills, and experience,  from following set financial procedures and processes to dealing with external suppliers & purchase orders. Educated to undergraduate degree level, you will be confident working independently or as part of a team. You are used to routine administration tasks such as diary and meeting management, taking minutes, ordering resources, producing project materials and responding to queries.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, a final salary pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. If you have any queries you may contact the LCF Staffing Team, email:
