Timetabling Coordinator

University of St Andrews - Planning Unit

Applications are invited for an exciting new post, based within the Timetabling function at the University of St Andrews. The Timetabling Coordinator will ensure the successful delivery of the day-to-day operation of timetabling and the room booking service, supporting the Timetabling Officer in coordinating the work of the team.

With the university experiencing a growth in student numbers, plus the opportunities created by the opening of the Eden Campus, Timetabling has a major role to play in achieving the institution’s strategic aims related to growth, ensuring continued student satisfaction, and in shaping the development of the University estate.

The Timetabling Team is responsible for the delivery of a robust, flexible and customer focused timetable and the operational planning and management of the central Timetabling and Room Booking Service. The team works to ensure the delivery of a timetable that enables high-quality learning and teaching and the best use of the teaching estate to meet our institutional strategic aims and objectives and this new role will be key in facilitating this. The Team works closely with colleagues from across the University – particularly in close and frequent liaison with School Administrators but also with Accommodation, Conference and Events (ACE), Student Services, Media Services, Registry and Estates.

The work of the Timetabling Team plays an important part in the delivery of the Learning and Teaching strategy. Close co-operation with the members of the Office of the Senior Vice Principal (Proctor) including the Proctor, Deans and Pro Deans is key to service provision. Additionally, members of the Timetabling Team may work in partnership with ITS on the systems and data interfaces.

The role-holder will also be expected to take a pro-active approach in the provision of data reports to inform integrity checks, KPI reporting and other strategic reporting needs, as well as providing some technical assistance for the Syllabus Plus software and associated packages.

The successful candidate will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and be highly motivated about working within the team to enhance our service provision.
