Nottingham Trent University’s new strategic vision focuses on creating the University of the Future (www.ntu.ac.uk/strategy). We intend to transform the lives of our students and through them the world in which we live. Focused on five key themes, the new strategy will build on the institution’s existing strengths and set a framework for excellence that will drive further impact for the benefit of all of its communities.
In order to achieve our ambition of ‘Connecting Globally’, a new NTU Global office has been established to manage the key functions of internationalisation including student exchange, international partnerships and optimising the international student experience.
Within the new NTU Global office, we are currently recruiting for the role of Global Mobility and Validation Service Assistant. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new and growing team. The focus of this role will be to act as a first point of contact for any staff and student enquiries relating to European and International mobility, summer schools, scholarships and funding (including Erasmus+), and also to provide effective and efficient support for all overseas Validation Service partnerships and related data management.
This is a busy and varied role requiring a wide skill set. The post requires an ability to respond positively to change, tackling challenges with enthusiasm and sometimes resilience, and to be effective whilst working in a fast paced environment. The successful candidate will pay attention to detail, be solution focused and able to prioritise their own workload. He/she will have proven ability to work proactively, using their own initiative to complete tasks set.
Highly developed organisational and administrative skills are essential to the role, as are excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to effectively and confidently communicate complex information to a wide range of people, including non-native speakers of English. The role requires excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office applications.
