Research Support Officer (Pre and Post award)

Are you hard working with an eye for detail? Do you have financial administrative experience working in a busy office environment, and/or experience in a research support role? Do you want to join a team that is committed to supporting the strategic objectives and research culture of the Faculty of Social Sciences? 

We are looking for a professional and proactive individual who will provide high quality, customer-focussed research support to the Faculty of Social Sciences from within the Faculty Research and Innovation Office (FRIO).  You will work closely with the Research Support Administrators to support costings and applications for research funding, and to assist with the smooth running of awarded research projects.  

You will also support the FRIO in the maintenance of databases and the management of administrative and financial functions.  You will have the opportunity to make a valuable and significant contribution to the FRIO team and the Faculty.

With administrative experience in a busy, customer-focussed environment, preferably in a HE research context, you will also have excellent organisational skills and experience of financial systems and procedures. An ability to work to deadlines and an understanding of prioritising tasks is essential, as is experience of working with costings and budgets.
