We are recruiting an Operations Manager

Dec 2016: The Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences is looking for an Operations Manager to lead Centre administration and work closely with senior research leads to ensure the continued growth and success of the Centre.

The aim of this role is to support the senior research leads and their teams by ensuring that work environment, estates, staff appointments and finance are managed efficiently and fairly via existing administrative staff, filling gaps in capacity where necessary.

To achieve this, the post-holder will oversee the day-to-day running of the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, with responsibility for the management of support staff, operational expenditure, space allocation and building projects.

The post-holder must be an excellent communicator, able to understand and reconcile the needs of researchers, support staff and central University, and deal with problems in a timely manner and with diplomacy and tact.

The post is a grade UE08 and is full-time and open-ended. The post is based at Chancellor’s Building, Little France, but will involve some working also at Psychiatry, Royal Edinburgh Hospital site, and the Western General Hospital. The position is available immediately.
