Are you Interested in working for a world top 100 university?

We have an exciting opportunity in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for someone looking to apply their administration and organisation skills, in supporting a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT), working with staff and students in the Faculty of Engineering and at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

In this varied and busy role, you will be responsible for administrative support across the whole student lifecycle from enquiry to graduation.

We are seeking candidates with excellent IT skills, and experience of providing excellent customer service. The ability to proactively plan and prioritise a busy workload and communicate effectively with students, staff and sponsors at all levels is also essential.

You will be mainly based in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, with occasional working (once every 2-3 weeks approximately) at the AMRC campus at Catcliffe - so some flexibility is essential.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
