Departmental Administrator - Programmmes Administration Team x 2

Edge Hill University - PSS Programmes Administration Team

About You

Able to work on own initiative and resolve problems without direct supervision whilst maintaining excellent attention to detail. You will work flexibly and reliably as an individual as well as part of a team, sometimes under pressure, to prioritise and meet deadlines.

The ability to proactively review, implement, develop, and evaluate new systems & procedures is essential.

About the Role

Based in the Programmes Administration Team, this post offers an opportunity to join a professional support service team which provides highly skilled and responsive professional services in a key area of activity, as the Faculty takes a proactive approach to operating in a changing and challenging business environment. The Team functions include student assessment and tracking and the provision of support to academic staff.

The department is also responsible for the servicing of a range of Assessment, Programme Board, and Academic Team meetings, and proactively supports the Academic staff in the administration of the students’ progression on their programme.

This will be a varied, interesting, and challenging role, which requires excellent organisational skill, supervisory or staff management experience, flexibility, attention to detail, and the ability to prioritise and delegate duties in order to meet deadlines to the required quality standards.


We want you to feel happy when you come to work and proud when you go home.

We have excellent facilities within our bespoke Wellbeing Centre and our comprehensive staff health & wellbeing programme gives you the opportunity to have a lunchtime stroll across our beautiful campus, a trim from our onsite hairdresser, car valeting, attend a family focused event, make an appointment for a massage, and get together with colleagues over free food and drink to watch the latest film on one of our Film Nights.

This is just a taste of what we are able to offer you at Edge Hill University.
