The Maths and Statistics Skills Centre is a strategically important University service, supporting undergraduate, taught Masters and research students. It complements skills teaching that is embedded in programmes across the University. Services include ‘drop-in’ and appointment-based services, workshops and online information and learning resources.
As Statistics and Maths Adviser, you will contribute to the development and delivery of these services. You will have experience of delivering mathematics and statistics teaching or support, have a qualification relating to teaching practice, and excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
Appropriate knowledge of mathematics and statistics skills to a high standard is a requirement, as are excellent interpersonal skills for effective interaction with students and staff.
The role forms part of the Learning Enhancement Team in the Academic Support Office.
The post is available on an open contract basis, on Grade 6 of the University scale.
Established in 2010, the Maths and Statistics Skills Centre provides mathematics and statistics support for all students at the University. Whilst departments retain primary responsibility for embedding appropriate teaching and support within their programmes and modules, the Centre provides an environment in which students can further develop their mathematical and statistical skills and confidence. The aim is to offer support to students who value the opportunity to ask questions in an impartial environment dedicated to maths and statistics learning.

The Centre is part of a growing programme of quality enhancement and student support at the University. This is guided by the University’s Learning and Teaching Strategy, and associated commitments to support the student learning experience, taking forward institutional change in teaching, learning and assessment practices.
The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
