Are you looking for an interesting, challenging and diverse role where your interpersonal and organisational skills will contribute to the smooth-running of the Faculty of Biological Sciences?
As Personal Assistant to Head of School and a Faculty Pro Dean the post holder will be responsible for all day-to-day administrative support. This may include scheduling complex meetings with international colleagues across times zones and travel itineraries. This post will also support the Pro Dean to deliver faculty wide project work, organise events and service committee meetings. As the first point of contact for external partners, you will have significant experience as a Personal Assistant to senior management with excellent interpersonal, organisational and communication skills.
You will have a willingness to learn new skills, accept new responsibilities and be able to work effectively both independently and as part of the Faculty PA Team. By being largely self-directed in your day-to-day work, you will demonstrate a high level of personal responsibility and initiative in all aspects of the role. With a diplomatic and discreet approach, you will be skilled at managing a complex workload including electronic diary and correspondence management. This is a varied role that spans the activities of the Faculty of Biological Sciences and external partners.
