scraping similar items on the same page

I want to scrape a page with a list of university staff (see attachment) . this isnt a list or links  it is a list of headings and descriptions (see image) I thought that "extract data like" would go down the page and extract each record but I only get the first one

You want an Extract Table action.

OK I extracted a table, which seems fine when I look at what is extracted. I then named the four variables in the table that I want to save, I then went to save variable and created a csv file with each of the named variables as expressions (also tried string). When I run it nothing is saved?

One possible reason is you didnot put a name under TargetField.
 
Also, you can use action log to check if the variables are extracted correctly.
