The Role
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS) is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to join the Faculty Research team to cover the maternity leave for the existing Post Award Research Manager.

The Faculty has a total of 700 academic and research staff and 230 support staff across its range of disciplinary areas. It has a significant and diverse student population.

HaSS is open to the world and seeks to address social and global challenges through its thinking, making, and practice. Building on the strong cultural heritage of our disciplines, we value enquiry, exploration, and creativity. We are committed to enabling a supportive culture for our staff and students, which prizes trust and integrity, values diversity, and inclusiveness, and promotes wellbeing in collaborative and inspiring environments.

Working with a variety of stakeholders, the successful applicant will complete a range of administration tasks with a ‘can do’ attitude and a willingness to be flexible to support the wider team.
