Evening Computing Assistants


Part-time staff are occasionally required to cover various duties at the Computing Services on weekdays from 16:30 - 20:45. These positions are open to all members of Oxford University.

You will be responsible to the Evening Supervisor for the following duties:

For these vacancies you will preferably be educated to post-graduate degree level, already have some experience of using the Computing Services, be expected to converse clearly, have good inter-personal skills, and have a pleasant manner. Following your informal interview, you will be placed upon a reserve list of staff who may be called upon to work at short notice if an individual on the permanent list is unable to work. You will eventually move onto the regular list as individuals leave. Please note that you should be available for a period of at least 18 months from the start of your employment here.

You will initially be paid at the rate of £10.06 per hour. When you have completed a total of 60 hours work during the evening, and OUCS is satisfied with your performance, your hourly rate will rise to £11.66 per hour. Both these rates are augmented by an additional 17.1% in lieu of holiday entitlements as stipulated in the Working Time Regulations 1998.. During the probationary period, both parties will be subject to one weeks' notice of termination, after which it will increase to two weeks' notice.

A short coffee break may be taken during your shift. There is no meal break.

In the first instance, please contact Annie Martin (ext. 73271).
