About the role

We are looking to appoint two highly organised, motivated individuals to be key members of the External Relations Division. The post-holders will provide comprehensive high-quality administrative and organisational support to 3 Directors in the External Relations Division to ensure the efficient and effective operation of their portfolio.

Able to work independently, you will deliver excellent personal assistant support, ensuring the Directors’ time is managed efficiently and effectively, often in the face of competing demands and tight deadlines.  You will fulfil a number of administrative functions including email and diary management, committee servicing, maintaining systems and processes, and providing confidential support. You will be proactive in using your own initiative and judgement to resolve issues, be able to determine priorities and to ensure that they are represented professionally at all times.

You will also be required to develop an understanding of colleagues’ workloads and priorities to ensure a continuous and seamless service to the Directorates is provided at all times.

About you

You will possess the high standard of professional performance required to represent senior members of University staff, and the communication skills necessary to work with a diverse array of internal and external stakeholders.

You will be experienced at working flexibly and autonomously, with the ability to negotiate and work with senior staff and colleagues in a positive and diplomatic way.  Taking a dynamic approach to your work you will enjoy working in a changing and fast paced environment.

Additional information

Informal enquiries regarding this opportunity are welcome, and should be made to Laura Matthews at [email protected].

We anticipate that interviews will take place on the 8th or 9th September 2022.
