University of Bristol - Faculty of Science

Salary: £19,623 to £21,686
Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 7th October 2021
Closes: 20th October 2021
Job Ref: SUPP107708

The role

Providing support, primarily administrative, to students and staff in the School of Physics Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories, working within a small team of technicians to prepare for and assist the smooth running of practical classes. 

What will you be doing?

Become a proficient user of our student records system, recording student attendance and marks, preparing weekly marking schedules for students and staff.  Monitor student progress, investigating issues and escalating to managers as required. During busy periods, support the teaching lab technicians by helping to set out simple equipment and prepare the laboratory for classes, and dispensing consumables.  Training in any practical or safety requirements will be provided; prior experience is unnecessary.

You should apply if

You have excellent organisational and IT skills, experience with accurate data entry and record keeping, and an eye for detail.  The ability to communicate effectively and tactfully with others is essential, and you must be confident intervening when safety protocols are not being followed and approaching students when there are pastoral concerns.  You must be comfortable working in a busy environment, and experience working in a laboratory setting would be helpful.  Since the primary purpose of this role is to support scheduled practical classes, it is expected that annual leave will be taken outside of term-time.
