Hiring Administrator for Design Skillnet

We are looking for a full-time administrator for The Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) and Design Skillnet.

The Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) and Design Skillnet have an exciting opening for an Administrator to join their dynamic team. The successful candidate will ensure the smooth running of their administrative and book-keeping processes and support Design Skillnet in the delivery of learning programmes and activities to the Design and Creative sector.

Design Skillnet is the professional development and training arm of the IDI. It supports design professionals in their careers through career planning, skills development and networking activities, curated with globally recognised leaders in specific areas of design and leadership, enabling them to maximise their full potential.
