You will be an effective and tactful communicator, who can help find solutions to issues within the College’s policies and employment law. You will also need to be well organised and able to prioritise your work and deal with issues as they arise on a day to day basis. Attention to detail and good administrative skills are also essential

You will also contribute to achieving the College’s overall priorities, with a strong commitment to ensuring our workforce is equipped to provide students with the best possible experience.
