Applicants will also possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and be confident in dealing with individuals at all levels of seniority. You will work collaboratively within your immediate team, and across School and University services, sharing best practice and facilitating continuous improvement. High levels of initiative are required for the role, with the ability to review processes and introduce new ways of working where appropriate in order to ensure the provision of an excellent service.
