At Queen Mary University of London, we believe that a diversity of ideas helps us achieve the previously unthinkable.

Throughout our history, we’ve fostered social justice and improved lives through academic excellence. And we continue to live and breathe this spirit today, not because it’s simply ‘the right thing to do’ but for what it helps us achieve and the intellectual brilliance it delivers.

Our reformer heritage informs our conviction that great ideas can and should come from anywhere. It’s an approach that has brought results across the globe, from the communities of east London to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.

We continue to embrace diversity of thought and opinion in everything we do, in the belief that when views collide, disciplines interact, and perspectives intersect, truly original thought takes form.

About the Role

Working within the HR Recruitment and Operations team for the Professional Services Directorate, this role is responsible for providing an outstanding administrative HR service.  This includes responding to operational queries from job applicants and employees, undertaking a range of standardised processes, and ensuring HR records, systems and databases are kept up-to-date and accurate at all times.

You will operate with a supportive and proactive approach while providing appropriate and timely advice and guidance to managers in effectively dealing with their day-to-day recruitment and operational needs.

About You
