One post

The person appointed will be responsible for helping to provide the administrative support required for the academic activities of the college. The principal focus is the maintenance of a specially-designed Access tuition database, which is used to gather and process information about tuition, and to produce financial and statistical reports for use by College Officers and committees throughout the year.

An eye for detail, and good organisational, administrative, communication, and interpersonal skills are essential, plus the ability to work to deadlines.

In return the college offers a competitive salary (in the range £18,893--£21,010 per annum), excellent benefits, and a broad, stimulating role in an Oxford college with an open, contemporary culture.

Further particulars may be obtained from http://www.stcatz.ox.ac. uk/college_administration/vacancies/ or, in case of difficulty, from the Academic Registrar, St Catherine's College, Oxford OX1 3UJ (e-mail: academic.registrar@stcatz.ox.ac.uk).

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 7 July.
