An exciting opportunity has arisen to work as a Technical Operations Manager, within the School of Chemistry at the University of St Andrews.  

Working alongside the Head of School, Director of Research and other senior members of academic staff you will provide strategic guidance while effectively supporting the core research of the School of Chemistry by being responsible for the lifecycle management and strategic planning of the School’s research facilities. You will lead, manage and develop efficient, professional technical services across the School to enable the delivery of world-class teaching and research. You will be a key liaison point between the School and the University, advise on University regulations and design and implement strategies for the sustainable funding of the School’s research facilities.  

You will be a proactive self-starter who possesses excellent team and relationship management skills, sound judgement and effective problem-solving skills. You will also have the ability to use your initiative in order to ensure overall technical operations across the School are delivered in a way that enhances the Schools’ reputation and standing in teaching and research.   

Experience in a similar role in a University or research environment with an understanding of teaching and research within Higher Education would be advantageous.  

For informal enquiries, we encourage those considering applying to contact the Head of School for Chemistry, Professor Chris Baddeley (cjb14@st-andrews.ac.uk), or Deputy Head of School, Professor Sharon Ashbrook (sema@st-andrews.ac.uk).  

We are fully committed to equality and diversity in our recruitment and employment policies.  We operate family-friendly hours for core meetings and are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements for staff.  We also offer reasonable childcare costs for applicants invited to interview  

Applications are particularly welcome from people from the Black, Asian, Minority or Ethnic (BAME) community and other protected characteristics who are underrepresented in professional services posts at the University.  

Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of the St Andrews experience.  We strive to create a fair and inclusive culture demonstrated through our commitment to diversity awards (Athena Swan, Carer Positive, LGBT Charter, Race Charters and Stonewall). We celebrate diversity by promoting profiles of BAME, LGBTIQ+ staff and supporting networks including the Staff BAME Network; Staff with Disabilities Network; Staff LGBTIQ+ Network; and the Staff Parents & Carers Network.
