Occasionally you work on specific projects as necessary with the Research Support Managers and Assistant Directors.

You would provide a first line of expertise and guidance on complex administrative issues for the Finance Analysts - Research and Grants within ROO, contributing to training needs and workload management for a given team.

Applicants will have practical experience of working in finance and research grants administration. Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential, together with a proactive, mature attitude, be an excellent team player and good at multi- tasking.
