Hub Manager

The University of Cambridge is one of the world's oldest universities and leading academic centres. If you're looking for a new challenge and would like excellent benefits, extensive learning opportunities and a stimulating working environment in return for your skills and contribution, there could be a job here for you.

We are seeking a highly-motivated and skilled administration Manager, to lead a busy operations Hub, during an exciting period of substantial change, as the Department prepares itself for occupancy of its new, state of the art research facility - the Ray Dolby Centre, in 2024. The Hub Manager and their team provides a vital, dedicated support service, that encompasses all standard areas of general administration, primarily finance and grants, but also HR, to academics, principal investigators and their groups, in the management of their research activities.

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who is confident leading and developing a small but dedicated team of people, or someone who is looking to experience a different operational environment and feels they are ready to demonstrate and develop skills in a post with more managerial responsibility.

You will have outstanding organisational and administrative skill, be able to manage confidently multiple, and sometimes conflicting deadlines, and on occasion, work effectively under pressure. As the main point of contact with hub members across different staff and categories, and the outward face of your administrative hub, you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to develop and nurture relationships with colleagues across all areas in the Department and beyond. The administration hub is part of a broader professional services team, and interactions and relationship development with those teams will be key to the success of this role.

Applications are welcome from internal candidates who would like to apply for the role on the basis of a secondment from their current role in the University.

We welcome applications from individuals who wish to be considered for part-time working or other flexible working arrangements.
