Due to the retirement of the current post holder, the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics is seeking a professional and efficient administrator to join our small, friendly team providing support to members of, and visitors to, the Department.
Excellent communication and organisational skills are required as the role holder will act as the first point of contact for all administration enquiries. The ability to work independently, as well as a part of a team, is essential to deliver effective administration support from welcoming new staff and visitors to the Department, supporting delivery of seminars and conferences to managing office supplies and room availability. Organising travel and accommodation is a key part of the role so experience of the University Procurement System would be an advantage but training is also available.
