In West Cumbria, the heart of the UK nuclear industry, the Institute operates the Dalton Cumbrian Facility (DCF), a state-of-the-art research base for radiation science located at Westlakes Science Park, and the Robotics for Extreme Environments Laboratory (REEL), applying bespoke engineering solutions to the application of robotic systems in challenging settings, located at Leconfield Industrial Estate.

We are seeking to appoint an Executive Assistant to provide effective day-to-day administrative management support to the Dalton Nuclear Institute’s Cumbrian based Directors, including coordinating calendars, work tasks and overseeing agendas and projects.  You will also act as point of contact for enquiries from academic and experimental staff and play an important role in liaising with Faculty and University colleagues, as well as students, visitors and external users. You will also help support the management of administrative projects, procedures and systems at both the DCF and REEL.

You will be expected to show flexibility and adaptability in meeting the developing needs of the Dalton Nuclear Institute and the University. Also, a proactive and energetic approach is important, as is an ability to establish a good rapport with postgraduate level students, staff and visitors.
