Primary Practice Group: Work for Perrett Laver

Salary & Benefits: Competitive

The Project Coordinator position is a role that has been created to provide crucial resource to the Project Management Team, supporting different aspects of our executive search processes.

The role requires a flexible and energetic multi-tasker who is keen to support a fast- paced, busy team and to learn and develop project management skills and experience. Excellent attention to detail, time management and prioritisation skills, initiative and a strong customer service ethos, as well as a strong appreciation of the importance of punctuality, responsibility, discretion and integrity, are all key attributes needed to carry out this role successfully.

Your focus will primarily be on internal delivery, with some contact with clients and candidates where appropriate, with a view of developing over time the skills required to be a successful Project Manager.

This role requires willingness to help and ability to anticipate support where it is required by the Project Management Team, as well as some wider support in the firm including front of house and other ad hoc duties.

Although not solely responsible for a project portfolio, you will be involved in a range of tasks across a variety of high-level executive searches, supporting the project management teams across a number of practice groups (Social Impact & Environment; Research, Technology & Innovation; Schools; Global Higher Education; Boards; and Arts, Culture & Sports) as you develop your skills and capabilities as a Project Manager.

Perrett Laver believes that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. A broad range of perspectives, backgrounds and opinions amongst our global community of colleagues is crucial in maintaining our culture of openness, intellectual curiosity, and creativity. We take an active role in supporting under-represented communities and groups in becoming better and more fairly represented in the leadership of all organisations. We also know that diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our ability to identify, engage and secure candidates from these groups.

Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, and experience drives us every day – for clients, for candidate identification and in the recruitment, development and retention of colleagues. 

To ensure inclusion on the basis of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstance, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, political or religious beliefs, race, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, we would like to specifically invite applications from under-represented groups.

Please note that due to the volume of applications, we will only notify shortlisted applicants. This role will be open until filled.
