You should have previous experience of working in an administrative role. Attention to detail is very important, as is the ability to manage a busy workload with conflicting priorities. You will need to work closely with other team members, academic colleagues and students from across the world, so effective communication and customer relation skills are highly important. 

You should have good computer skills, with a proficiency in Word and Excel and while experience in HE systems would be advantageous, full training will be provided. Most important is an interest in our work and a willingness to become fully involved in the life of the Faculty and its departments.

We care about student and staff well-being, excellent service and University reputation. If this approach resonates with you and you are a good team player who also enjoys working independently and taking initiative, we would welcome an application from you.
