Providing a broad range of support and administrative service across all research programmes to ensure the Division is promoting a positive student experience in line with the requirements of the University’s Codes of Practice and policies.
Maintaining records and files (including updating databases and trackers) to ensure research programmes meet University and Divisional regulations as well as external requirements.


To be the successful candidate you will have/be:

Educated to GCSE in English & Maths (Grade C/4 or above), or equivalent
Previous administrative experience in a customer facing role
Good IT skills particularly MS Office packages (intermediate level)
Excellent communication and presentation skills, able to communicate effectively and clearly both verbally and in writing
The University of Kent is a distinctive and attractive place to work. We employ around 6,000 staff, including academic and research staff and a full range of support and administration staff. Our stunning main campus in Canterbury, Kent was founded in 1965 and is set among green and tranquil open space overlooking the spectacular Cathedral.
