Applications are invited for the post of Trust Administrator with the Daphne Jackson Trust. Based at the University of Surrey, the Trust offers fellowships for returners to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) after a career break of two years or more.

Applicants must be computer literate with a fully operational knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook. Knowledge of Microsoft Access would be a great advantage. Applicants should ideally have a STEM background and knowledge of higher education or the charity sector. A knowledge of some of the stakeholders with whom the Trust works, such as the Research Councils, Learned Societies or the scientific community in general would be an advantage.

The role of Trust Administrator is based in the Daphne Jackson Trust Office in the Physics Department at the University of Surrey. Salary offered is £20k.

Closing date for applications is Friday 3rd October 2014. Interviews will be held during the week commencing 6th October. We acknowledge, embrace and understand diversity
