We are currently recruiting a Centre Manager to take over my role, as I'm leaving next month for a role elsewhere at the University of Manchester. Full details are below. The deadline for applications is 9 August.
I've absolutely loved working for LuCiD. The group is really friendly and supportive, and the role is very diverse so provides plenty of opportunity to develop a range of skills. Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to have an informal chat about the role before applying.
