Research Administration Specialist - Research & Development

Band 4 full time - 37½ hours/week

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Administration Specialist to join the Research and Development Department at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust in Coventry. We are looking for an enthusiastic, pro-active and hard-working individual who enjoys working in a busy working environment. 

The post holder will play a key role in providing efficient support and guidance to researchers internally and externally.  Working within the Research Development team, you will work with clinical and academic staff to support research grant applications and contracts, but also across the wider R&D teams and the Trust. Excellent communication skills and a positive can-do attitude are therefore essential.

Applicants will need to be computer literate in Word, Excel and Outlook mail with excellent organisational skills and meticulous attention to detail. Individuals must have the ability to multi task and manage multiple projects at the same time, manage and prioritise your own workload and be able to work on both your own initiative and as part of a team.

This is an excellent career development opportunity for a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual who wishes to pursue a career in research administration in the NHS.

Recruiting to Values

To ensure that we provide world-class patient care, UHCW recruits people that can demonstrate the Trust’s Values and Behaviours in their everyday life. Therefore, if you are invited to interview, you will be undertaking a Values Based Interview/Assessment, which explores not only what you do but how and why you do it.

Before applying, we encourage you to review the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and Values Based Recruitment Factsheet which can be accessed on the right side of this page under the job description.

The Supporting Information Section in your application should therefore reflect your understanding of the Trust’s Values and associated Behaviours. You will be expected to provide us with examples from work experience and/or personal life which demonstrate these values through your behaviour.
