You should have experience of providing excellent customer-service focused administrative support including event management; experience within a research environment in a higher education institution is an advantage but not essential. You should have experience of monitoring and reporting on financial income and expenditure, preferably using an electronic financial system; and should be confident using computer packages to complete tasks quickly and accurately within deadlines. Excellent communication skills are essential as is a commitment to providing high standards of customer service to a diverse range of people whilst working closely with a supportive and friendly team. You should be self-motivated and keen to develop new skills which will be supported by peers and managers.
