They will develop evaluation forms to collect feedback, produce feedback summaries to share with the School, and contribute ideas on how the School can improve processes and service for participants.

The successful candidate will need to be resilient and adaptable to the changing needs and priorities of the team and the School. They will have a systematic, thorough and well organised approach to work with the ability to know when to use your initiative and when to seek advice. They will have excellent team working and communications skills, with the ability to demonstrate a personable and diplomatic approach when dealing with a diverse range of people.
