About the Role
This post sits in the Disability and Dyslexia Service’s main reception office in the Francis Bancroft Building at Mile End and will primarily involve dealing with enquiries from students. These enquiries will be in person, via email and over the phone, and while chiefly coming from current students will also include those from prospective students, potential applicants and alumni. The post is vital to ensure that the Disability and Dyslexia Service can continue to support and meet the expectations of a growing number of disabled students at Queen Mary University of London, including those with specific learning differences (e.g. dyslexia) and mental health diagnoses.

The postholder would be required to work on-site five days per week (Monday-Friday).

The post-holder will be line managed and supervised by the DDS Frontline Services Manager, who has operational responsibility for the Disability and Dyslexia Service’s budgets; as such, it is likely that the DDS Operations and Frontline Support and Guidance Officer will carry out various financial functions and be able to deputise for this post when necessary.

The post is available as a secondment, (starting immediately) until the 30th of January 2025. The starting salary will be at Grade 4 in the range £38,165 - £44,722, inclusive of London Allowance.

About You
The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, a high standard of written English and experience of working with either disabled people or students in a frontline setting.
