You will be responsible for purchasing of goods and services, travel booking and expenses processing, and budget monitoring.

You should be highly numerate, with good attention to detail, and the ability to manage your time well and prioritise tasks to meet deadlines.

Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours) ; however applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 18 hours per week).
