Salary: £36,100 per annum, plus excellent benefits

The British Academy’s international team promotes and supports international collaboration and mobility, develops and maintains links with sister academies, international organisations and other partners overseas, and leverages the expertise of Fellows and award-holders to further the Academy’s reach, impact and influence internationally.

The Academy’s international programmes are multi-year endeavours which entail a wide array of activities: from providing research funding to talented individuals in the UK and overseas, to informing international policy and public debates, to using the Academy’s convening power to showcase the value of international and interdisciplinary collaborations for addressing today’s global challenges and ensuring that the UK maintains its place as a world-leader in the social sciences and humanities.

You will work with colleagues to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of the Academy’s international programmes. This will involve working across the portfolio of international programmes, developing new (or further enhancing existing) working processes, providing support and guidance to International Programmes Officers administering specific programmes, and working with the two other International Programmes Managers will be responsible for financial monitoring and reporting on grants.

The Academy offers 34 days of annual holiday (not including bank holidays), excellent benefits (including a defined benefit pension scheme) and one of the best locations in London.
