Now a bit about us. The Political Studies Association is the largest learned society in Europe dedicated to the study of politics boasting a membership of around 2,000 individuals. Since its creation in 1950 we have promoted the intellectual, social and public value of the study of politics. As a result, British expertise on politics is recognised around the world for its scholarly quality, its openness and – most of all – for its ability to bridge both ‘politics in theory’ and ‘politics in practice’.
A bit about you. The successful candidate will be a self-starter with the ability to work on his/her own initiative and be adept at working with competing deadlines. Exemplary interpersonal and teamworking skills are a must, as is the ability to communicate clearly and succinctly both verbally and in writing. You’ll be a meticulously organised person who thrives in a mutually supportive environment.
