Dynamic and vibrant, Durham University Business School is one of Durham University's four Faculties and comprises soon to be four research-intensive departments: Accounting, Economics, Finance, and Management and Marketing. Known for its global reputation, impact on policy and practice, and a strong focus on ethics, responsibility and sustainability, the School aims to be a leading European business school with a strong global presence by 2027.

Following an exciting recent development to create two new departments in the Business School, we are looking to recruit members of staff to form a Professional Service team to support the newly established Department of Finance. As part of this recruitment campaign, we are looking to recruit a Departmental Coordinator to coordinate academic and departmental activities.

The post holder will be responsible for providing a professional, efficient administrative service, taking responsibility for operational aspects of the Department. They will ensure deadlines are met and service delivery standards are maintained, working in accordance with University and Departmental policies and procedures. They will work closely with a range of teams and functions situated at the University and School level, senior members of the Department, in particular the Head of Department, Senior Departmental Officer and other members of the Senior Management Team. Provide a comprehensive administrative support to members of the Department, liaising with PhD students, academic members of staff to provide a first class, customer focused service. Therefore the ability to work collaboratively and effectively share information is essential in order to deliver a coordinated and professional level of administrative support across a full range of departmental activities.

The Departmental Coordinator will work independently, taking day to day decisions and using their experience and initiative to decide on appropriate courses of action and resolve complex problems. They will possess excellent organisational and time management skills, display initiative and flexibility, and demonstrate a commitment to customer service excellence.

To ensure the departments are fully staffed for the official launch (1st August 2022), we aim to have all vacant posts filled by or earlier than 30th June 2022.
