We’ll also look for the skill to identify broad trends to assess and resolve issues, the courage to apply originality in modifying existing approaches to solve problems, and the ability to work collaboratively within a dynamic team setting. Always ready to provide expert guidance and advice, your interpersonal skills will allow you to persuade and influence to foster excellent relationships with your colleagues and other stakeholders. 

Ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we’re bold, progressive and keen to push the boundaries of what we’re achieving and will help you find a brilliant work/life balance. And with access to onsite childcare facilities and a childcare vouchers scheme, our comprehensive benefits package also includes a contributory pension scheme, generous holiday allowance, subsidised health and fitness facilities, a cycle-to-work scheme and a range of discounts.
