You have the ability to understand and empathise with students of all levels within an academic and multi-cultural environment.  Your excellent communication skills enable you to build rapport and develop effective and positive working relationships with staff and students, plus deal with issues sensitively and confidentially.

Your strong numerical and statistical abilities will be put to use in analysis and presentation of key facts and figures in easy-to-understand formats. As an analytical problem solver who is able to comprehend broad and complex issues, you are practised in identifying and implementing solutions, including improvement, or development, of administrative systems and processes.

Experience of managing people is essential, with the capacity to lead, motivate, negotiate, facilitate and empathise with your team. You must be able to demonstrate personal resilience and adaptability, leading them through periods of change and creating a positive team and working environment.
