You will also have the interpersonal skills to provide advice, support and, where appropriate, training, to internal customers on communicating and managing information via the web.  


It is also essential that you have excellent customer focus, initiative and good planning, organisational, analytical, and problem-solving skills. Experience of working within a Higher Education environment would be an advantage.

We celebrate diversity by promoting profiles of BAME, LGBTIQ+ staff and supporting networks including the Staff BAME Network; Staff with Disabilities Network; Staff LGBTIQ+ Network; and the Staff Parents & Carers Network.  Full details available online:
