The Project Support Officer will be an integral part of our small busy team, working under the guidance of the Centre Coordinator to support the office with general administration tasks, event organisation, and specified projects as determined by the Management Committee.

We are looking for an individual with a keen interest in politics, UK public policy and the labour movement who can demonstrate a commitment to the values of CLASS. The ideal candidate will be someone who is able to work well under pressure, prioritise a busy workload and deliver projects to tight deadlines.
