Hull York Medical School Student Support Team is seeking to recruit a Student Support Assistant to be based at the University of York, on a continuing contract.

Working with your counterpart on the University of Hull campus, you will be required to provide excellent customer service to students, staff and visitors through a front-facing role.  You will have excellent communication skills, both orally and written and have experience of working effectively as part of a team.  You will be responsible for providing support to the Academic Lead for Student Support and the Student Life and Wellbeing Officer.

Hull York Medical School is committed to the ongoing development of its student support services and delivering a high standard of support across all of its academic and clinical environments.

The role is extremely varied and there will be some occasions when travel to the University of Hull and our NHS partnership sites is necessary.
