Are you customer focussed and excited about delivering an outstanding service across the whole range of the University’s research grant portfolio? Are you confident, flexible and adaptable and do you have experience of financial administration? Do you want to join a University-wide team supporting academics with pre and post award research grant management?

As a highly motivated, proactive individual you will be responsible for providing research grant management support to academics.

Across the 8 FROs the team deal with a very large volume of research grant applications and awards. You will work closely with existing FRO and central teams to cost and price projects, liase with funders, set up and maintain financial records and produce claims and invoices. In particular you will be an expert contact and source of knowledge on funder and University processes and systems for grant management. 

You will need to show a high level of attention to detail and have the ability to organise, prioritise and work to tight deadlines. You will have a high level of interpersonal, communication and organisational skills and to be able to work on our own initiative, flexibly, proactively in a busy environment. We also require good problem solving skills to work through complex issues, and a positive attitude to change.
