About the role

A thrilling opportunity has arisen for an Executive Assistant to join the Ashmolean Museum. You will provide high-level administrative and strategic support to the Director. You will respond to the demands of the busy Directorate and take the initiative to contribute to its smooth running.

This will require diplomacy, discretion, and the ability to build strong working relationships within the Ashmolean, across GLAM, the University and the sector.
