If you are organised, proactive and have experience of working with senior level stakeholders, this is a brilliant opportunity to support the success of projects that are improving healthcare and wellbeing in London. 
About Us
We are London Higher, an ‘umbrella’ body representing over 40 publicly funded universities and higher education (HE) institutions in London, as well as several universities with centres in London and a small number of private providers.
We are the place where universities and higher education colleges come together to identify the opportunities and address the challenges of working in London.
We’re currently looking for a Project Officer to join us and support the day-to-day running of London Health HE.
About London Health HE 
London Health HE is a division of our organisation that connects senior leaders across London to advance health and medical education, as well as student and staff wellbeing.
To help our members respond to specific challenges in health and higher education, we currently facilitate three senior leader networks: the London Healthcare Education Group (LHEG), London Medicine (LMED) and the London Health & Wellbeing Network (LHWN). LHEG connects senior leaders in nursing, midwifery and allied health education, and LMED serves a parallel purpose in medicine and dentistry. LHWN has a broader reach but a specific focus on student and staff health, including mental health and wellbeing.
The Benefits

- Pension
- Employee assistance programme
- Home working options
- Offices in a central London location
- A friendly and informal atmosphere

From improving student wellbeing to meeting the demands of the NHS, the Higher Education sector is entering into what will be a transformative time. Your work will encourage conversation and collaboration and enable London’s universities and research institutes to address health-related challenges.
The Role
As a Project Officer, you will support the day-to-day activities of London Health HE.
You’ll support and co-ordinate our programme of senior-level meetings and professional events across the three networks in London Health HE: LHEG, LMED and LHWN.

- Agree agendas and secure speakers

- Previous experience of working with committees, forums and volunteers
- A track record of organising meetings and events
