Further to a reorganisation of Professional Services roles in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we are seeking a small number of highly efficient and capable administrators to become members of the academic administration team in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. These posts provide an excellent opportunity to develop a career in University administration.

The post holder will provide administrative support to the Director of Clinical Studies (Dr Catherine Swales), the Director of Graduate-entry Medical Studies (Dr David McCartney) and the Head of Administration and Finance (Mrs Kirstie Vreede). This will consist of arranging meetings (formal and informal), diary management, and drafting correspondence. They will also assist with student administration by preparing transcripts and verification documents for current students and past students on request, and by administering prizes to students.

The post holder will also provide a small amount of administrative support to the Leads for Patient and Public Involvement in Medical Education, the Lead for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Medical Education, and the Lead for Education for Sustainable Healthcare in Medical Education. This will involve assisting with the organisation of a small number of events, meetings, and teaching sessions; and taking notes / drafting minutes for a small number of meetings each year.

On weekday afternoons (exact hours to be confirmed), the post holder will have primary responsibility for greeting visitors to the office (e.g. students and teaching staff), directing them to the correct place/person, and distributing and collecting keys for teaching/meeting rooms in the Academic Centre. Another member of staff will have primary responsibility for this on weekday mornings.

The successful candidate for this position will have the ability to work systematically and to a high level of accuracy, with excellent attention to detail. They will have strong administrative and organisational skills, and will have the ability to manage a broad workload in an efficient manner. They will need to be willing and able to work harmoniously as a team member within a culture of academic leadership, as well as to work independently and to take the initiative to find solutions to problems, or to progress key tasks. They will have an excellent standard of computer-literacy, and will have the ability to handle numerical data with confidence and accuracy.
