2 posts – between 0.5 and full time

We are looking for 2 Membership Officers to join our small team (approx. 13 staff) during this exciting period of expansion and perform a crucial business support role. We are looking for candidates who can work anywhere between half- and full-time.

Professional HE Services (PHES) is an umbrella company for membership organisations in the UK Higher Education sector. PHES is the corporate “parent” to four Special Interest Organisations (SIOs); the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE), the British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG), the Higher Education Strategic Planners Association (HESPA) and Universities Human Resources (UHR). Between them, these organisations support UK university staff who work in the areas of estates, facilities management, finance, procurement, strategic planning, and HR.

The successful candidates will become an essential part of the PHES team, providing administrative support to other team members at the four SIOs. Working closely with colleagues, you’ll need to work efficiently and with attention to detail, display excellent customer service skills, and relate well to members. You will help organise and run events, manage the database and update the website, and undertake other support tasks as required. We encourage candidates who wish to grow in the role, and who will be willing to take on more responsibility as skills are demonstrated.

We offer a competitive annual salary at Grade 4 £18,777 - £22,876 pro rata dependent on qualifications and experience. We benchmark our salaries to the University of Sheffield grading structure. A defined contribution pension scheme is offered with 7.5% employee and 16% employer contribution rates, together with life insurance.
