JOB: Part-Time SAHGB Administrator

Job: Part-Time SAHGB Administrator

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) is an international membership organisation for everyone and anyone interested in the history of architecture. Our members range from academics and research students to conservation architects and heritage advisors. The Society provides a regular programme of events, including conferences, symposia and study visits; publishes academic research in its peer-reviewed journal, Architectural History; and awards grants for publication, research and education.
The Society currently has a vacancy for a part-time administrator. The role involves providing  administrative support, principally by organising and servicing meetings of the Society’s committees and sub-committees, and by helping to arrange study days, study tours and other events.
Suitable candidates will have good administrative skills; experience producing accurate and concise committee or board minutes is vital. Experience of organising events would be useful. The successful candidate will also have an interest (amateur or professional) in architectural history. The Society is paperless and does not have an office; the successful candidate will work from home and communicate electronically.
The post is paid according to the number of hours worked, at the rate of £15 per hour. It is expected that on an average week the administrator will work between four and eight hours, but this will vary. Working is flexible but the postholder will need to be available to attend meetings and events, some of which may be in the evening or at weekends.
More information about SAHGB and this position is available here.
To apply, please send an email to by 10 April 2019 attaching a short cv (one page of A4 maximum) and a short personal statement (again one page of A4 maximum). Interviews will be held in London in mid-April.
