NCAS Operations & Project Support Manager

Do you have experience of leading/coordinating a range of operational activities in a busy office environment? Are you talented at organising, managing and hosting meetings and events? Would you like to develop your skills and experience in a friendly and supportive environment? If so, we want to hear from you!

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is one of the six research centres supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). We pursue long-term research in Climate and High-Impact Weather, Air Pollution, and Long-Term Global Change. We also provide UK research scientists and others with services and facilities in atmospheric science through our FAAM Airborne Laboratory (based around a highly modified BAE 146 aircraft), the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility (providing major ground-based observing systems such as radars), the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (providing data management and analysis services) and the Computational Modelling Services (providing access to computational models and analysis tools). 

NCAS research and services are provided by a dedicated team of staff employed by and embedded within their local institutions, including the universities of Leeds, Manchester, York, Reading and Cranfield.

As Operations & Project Support Manager, you will be at the heart of a busy office environment at NCAS Headquarters. You will coordinate administrative and operational activities and will use your excellent organisational skills to manage a range of meetings and events across the country including the annual staff conference. You will also deliver a variety of projects in a supportive and enthusiastic environment. You’ll get to work with great colleagues right across the organisation and your work programme will be varied and interesting. Friendly, adaptable and diplomatic, you will take a proactive approach to your work and will have the ability to work well both within a team and independently.

The role will be based at NCAS Headquarters at the University of Leeds.
