The School of Management is one of the UK’s leading business schools, delivering undergraduate and postgraduate courses to over 2500 students each year. We are a leading centre for management research, placed 8th in the UK in the latest research evaluation exercise and undertake world-leading research with a range of FTSE250 corporate partners and third sector organisations. The School is ranked 1st for Marketing, 2nd for Business and Management Studies (the Complete University Guide 2018) and 3rd for Business Studies (The Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2017).

This is a busy and varied role and the post holder will need to have excellent organisational skills, demonstrate a good use of initiative, have the ability to multi-task and prioritise.
