We are looking for a motivated individual to provide administrative support for our lively and busy Department in the Faculty of Science. This varied and interesting post will involve close liaison with the staff within the Departments, Faculty-based teams, Central Professional Services, external organisations and members of the public.

The key tasks will be providing administrative support for a number of Departmental activities including support for senior members of the academic staff, playing a key role in our undergraduate admissions process, servicing departmental committees and support for other departmental/Faculty events.

Educated to a minimum of A level or with an equivalent qualification, you will have experience of working in a busy office environment where excellent communication skills are essential.

You will also have proven experience of working as part of a successful team in a confidential setting.

Skills in the use of University specific software (Moodle, SAMIS, Agresso and Business Objects) will be an added advantage. However, an interest in our work and a willingness to become fully involved in the life of the Faculty is equally important.

This is a full-time, permanent role.
