This post presents an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated administrator to join our busy and varied team. The role will support all areas throughout the year, especially awards support and with a focus of main responsibilities on the Exams area. This post holder will lead on exams paper preparation and supporting off campus exam arrangements.

This role encompasses everything from servicing document orders and providing certificates upon graduation, to planning and delivering our exams and assessment throughout the year. We deal first hand with students, our colleagues and many suppliers and stakeholders, and we recruit, train and manage a team of invigilators and support staff to deliver our key events.

To support the diverse range of activity we deliver in the student lifecycle we are seeking someone who can demonstrate excellent communication, organisational and inter-personal skills. You must be able to demonstrate that you can work accurately and within relevant policies and procedures.

However, because of our diverse workload and tasking, some elements of our work can only be completed in office/on campus. This is an operational team with a campus based role, flexible working and WFH are limited.
