We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and experienced Senior Operations Officer (Research) to join the professional services team at the School of Life Course Sciences in the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine at King’s College London.
The School is based at the St Thomas’ Hospital Campus and comprises around 360 staff and post-graduate research students. This post is key to realizing the potential of the School and will work closely with the rest of the School operations team as well as with colleagues across the Faculty and university to ensure that Research processes operate in a smooth and effective manner.
With demonstrable experience of working as a Research Officer, the post holder will act as the primary point of contact for Research-related activity within the School, grant application processes and liaising with the Awards team. The successful candidate would possess experience with WorkTribe and will be able to work autonomously, using your own initiative to manage multiple tasks and prioritise your workload to meet the needs of the School, be self-motivated, proactive and organised, with the ability to manage a mix of operational and project work. With strong communications skills, you will be confident and concise in advising and supporting managers and employees on a diverse range of operational Research issues.
This post represents an excellent opportunity to become familiarised with the operations of a high-performing higher education institution.
The selection process will include a competency-based questions panel interview.
