ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE
EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER
The Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) is seeking to appoint a full-time Education and Communications Officer, starting October 2014. The Education and Communications Officer will be expected to work from the RAIs offices in London and take an active role in the RAI’s core activities and programmes alongside other members of staff.
Anthropology education, in its widest sense, is a significant part of the RAI’s mission and activity in this area is led by the RAI’s Education Committee. The post holder will have special responsibilities for supporting and developing the RAI’s educational activities, services and resources, with particular focus on supporting non-university anthropology education, as well as organising out-reach events, engaging in broader communication activities, and contributing to the day-to-day administration of the RAI, including providing administrative support to the Education Committee.
It is expected that the Education and Communications Officer will have an undergraduate and/or postgraduate degree in anthropology, and to have a genuine enthusiasm for the discipline. Equally important is a demonstrable interest and familiarity with teaching and learning in secondary education, since the role will involve close liaison with teachers at schools and further education colleges. The Education and Communications Officer will need to be a good communicator, competent at using social and other online media, as well as good at face-to-face contact. Event coordination skills and experience will also be especially valuable. Working as part of a small and dedicated team, the successful candidate will be expected to carry out tasks under their own initiative, to work unsupervised, and to lend a hand in more general tasks as required.
