Are you ready to be part of a team that shapes how we support our students, Schools and the University in delivering a student-focused academic administration service within a challenging and varied working environment?

An exciting and unique opportunity exists for a proactive and passionate individual to join the Administration teams supporting the Schools of Business, Law and Social Sciences.
