Deputy Departmental Administrator (12 Jan)


This is a new fixed-term post created to support the Departmental Administrator with the additional administrative workload associated with the Tinbergen building closure in 2017.

The post combines strategic and operational duties and while the focus is on managing and developing the HR function the postholder will be expected to gain an understanding of departmental administration more generally in order to deputise effectively for the Administrator. This will be a key post in the effective operation of the Department in a period of significant change.

The successful candidate will have management experience, will have delivered operational HR services in a complex organisation and will be looking to gain experience of the range of administration activity in a busy university research department. A flexible approach, strong IT skills and education to degree level or equivalent are essential.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 12 January 2018.

With effect from 1 October 2017, all employees at Grade 8 and above have a retirement age of the 30 September before the 69th birthday. All employees at Grades 1-7 do not have a set retirement age.
