Job Title: Operations and Marketing Intern
Working For: Knowledge Quarter
Salary: £17,745 per annum pro rata (London Living Wage £9.75 - 2 days per week)
The Knowledge Quarter (KQ) is a partnership of over 85 academic, cultural, research, scientific and media organisations located in a one-mile radius around King’s Cross, Euston Road and Bloomsbury in London.
The KQ’s partners range from internationally significant research institutes to emerging organisations across all sectors. Partners include the British Museum, Central St Martins University of the Arts London, Google, the Digital Catapult, Wellcome Trust, The Guardian and the British Library. The partners might be vastly different, but we all share one common purpose: the creation and dissemination of knowledge.
The Knowledge Quarter has grown rapidly in size from an initial 35 partners to now over 85 in the space of only two years. As we grow our operations, we’re looking for a proactive self-starter to join our team and provide support in a number of areas, ranging from events, governance and communications.
The post-holder will provide secretariat support to three important Knowledge Quarter subgroups and support the scheduling and organisation of our popular events programme. This is an excellent opportunity to gain real world, varied and engaging paid experience with some of the most prestigious organisations in the world. As part of your internship, the Knowledge Quarter will seek to help support your development needs and tailor parts of the role to your interests.
This is a part-time, fixed-term position for six months with the possibility for extension. The role will be based in our offices in the British Library, but some remote working may be required from time to time.
