Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 14th February 2024

We have an excellent opportunity for a motivated, well-organised and customer-focussed individual to contribute to the work of the Postgraduate Research Support Team in Research Services in supporting the progression and examination of postgraduate research students (PGRs).

You will take a proactive approach to your work and have excellent communication and information management skills.  You will offer specialist advice and guidance to PGRs and University staff.  You will work as part of a team supporting a group of faculties with primary responsibility for the Faculty of Science. Day-to-day tasks include:

  • offering advice and guidance to students and staff
  • maintaining accurate student records
  • drafting correspondence
  • dealing with a range of issues in a confidential and sensitive manner

You have a straightforward and appropriate communication style, a customer-focussed approach, an ability to understand and apply policies and procedures and to be able to advise students and staff accordingly.

An understanding of our postgraduate research student community would be an asset, but is not essential.  A desire to make a positive contribution to the experience that postgraduate research students have here at Sheffield is essential.  You have a can-do approach and enjoy a volume of work with constantly changing priorities. You will join a supportive team. 

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 best effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
