You will communicate in a straight-forward and appropriate way with internal and external stakeholders and will be willing to contribute to the development of policies and systems to deliver an integrated and consistent research support network across the University. You will have a proactive approach and be able to deal with a volume of work with constantly changing priorities in a timely and customer-friendly manner.
