This is an exciting opportunity to use your technical and communication skills to support staff who deliver our teaching to around 2,500 students.

The role holder will also be involved in development of online examinations at the School of the Biological Sciences.

Our ideal candidate will be able to communicate clearly and effectively both in written work and orally with staff and students throughout the University and be able to work with colleagues in wide range of professional roles.
