Are you interested in playing a key role within the Department of Psychology, supporting the Head of Department (HoD) and managing the Department’s staff and student financial processes?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to provide comprehensive administrative support, manage the HoD’s diary, service meetings and plan for events. You will manage procedures involving expenses, credit card transactions, travel arrangements and other financial administrative tasks for both staff and students. You will also be responsible, as part of a professional services team, for the smooth running of the departmental office, as well as working with colleagues to maintain high levels of student satisfaction.

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 from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
