Working as part of the Institute's International Medieval Congress Team, you will the first point of contact for IMC delegate queries, provide varied clerical support and specific responsibility for accurate data input. You will possess an interest in the European Middle Ages and will be competent in the use of IT systems, particularly Microsoft Office packages. You will also have experience of working in a customer-focussed role and good numerical skills (including experience of handling money and/or payments). The ability to work effectively as part of a team and good organisational skills are also essential.

The Congress in 2018 will be from 2-5 July 2018 at the University's Main Campus. The Congress Assistant is required to work from the preceding Saturday (30 June 2018) through to the Thursday evening (5 July 2018), including evenings.
