The new School for Business and Society will be at the forefront of the University of York’s Strategy for Public Good. It is a new interdisciplinary school with a shared purpose. Combining the collective strengths from the University of York Management School and the Department of Social Policy & Social Work provides a unique opportunity, working collectively with staff and students and our partners, to pioneer impactful interdisciplinary research and teaching for public good, delivering inclusive growth. The School conducts research into the important issues of today such as living with poverty, the welfare system, food systems, the provision of social care, criminal justice, and mental health.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and proactive Administrator with excellent organisational skills to join the Research Support team. The Research Support Team helps academics to apply for research grants, to deliver their research projects, to organise events such as seminars and promote the School’s research.
This is an exciting new role that will join and support this experienced team (2 Research Facilitators and 3 Research Support Administrators).
It will be a busy and varied role. We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, willing to learn, proactive, reliable and pays close attention to detail. You will work with academics and the Research Support team and will be able to communicate clearly. Research support adheres to strict policies and procedures so you will be following written documents and helping to improve our processes. Our projects create data and you will be handling some of this data (for example updating spreadsheets with research participant information, contact details) so must have a good eye for detail and be able to work with accuracy and within GDPR requirements (GDPR training will be available). You will need to be flexible according to the needs and resources of the Research Support team as we work together to continuously improve our service provision.
