The Creative Destruction Lab (CDL), originally conceived at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, is one of the world’s premier seed stage programmes for massively scalable science-based ventures. The programme has created more than CAD$2bn (£1.2bn) in equity in less than 6 years, and has targeted companies that have the potential to transform our social, industrial and economic landscape.

CDL is now opening its first site outside North America, based at Saïd Business School, as a joint venture between Oxford Saïd and the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division of the University. CDL-Oxford will concentrate on the area of AI for the first year.

The Programmes Officer will oversee all phases of the planning and delivery of CDL’s programme of events. S/he will be responsible for liaising on a continuous basis with partners, associates, guests and other participants during all phases of event planning and execution, to ensure a high level of engagement at CDL-Oxford events.

The postholder will be an experienced administrator and programme coordinator, with relevant experience in the planning and execution of complex events. S/he will demonstrate excellent organisational skills and a solution-based approach to work. Excellent interpersonal skills and attention to detail are essential, as is the ability to work productively with a wide range of contacts, including senior academics and leading members of CDL’s ecosystem.
