NCAS Executive Support and Governance Officer

Are you a skilled organiser with experience of servicing senior level committees and meetings? Do you have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to quickly build trust and positive working relationships with a diverse range of people? Would you like to join a friendly, supportive and enthusiastic operations team, and make a valuable contribution to the running of an internationally-leading research centre?

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is one of the six research centres supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). NCAS pursues long-term research in Climate and High Impact Weather, Air Pollution and Long-Term Global Change. In addition, NCAS provides UK research scientists and others with services and facilities in atmospheric science through the FAAM Airborne Laboratory, the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility, the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis, and the Computational Modelling Services. The annual budget is approximately £30m. NCAS is entirely embedded within several universities and other organisations, including the universities of Leeds, Manchester, York, Reading and Cranfield along with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. NERC contracts the University of Leeds as the lead organisation, for NCAS, with the other organisations operating under sub-contracts. All of the staff are employed by their local institutions.

NCAS is seeking to employ an Executive Support and Governance Officer to join the NCAS Operations Team based at its headquarters in Leeds. As a core member of the team, you will support key functions of Governance and Reporting, Directorate Support, and HQ Operations Support and Administration. This is a varied and exciting new role that will offer you a great opportunity to further develop your skills, experience and expertise in a supportive team environment.  

NCAS works in partnership and collaboration with many organisations, and has staff and Directors hosted by a number of different universities. Whilst based in Leeds, you will provide support across NCAS. Occasional travel to other NCAS locations and meeting venues in the UK may be required, including overnight stays.
