Administrative Assistant

University College London - European Social and Political Studies, Department of Philosophy

European Social and Political Studies (ESPS), though not a department, is an autonomously functioning unit within UCL Department of Philosophy and runs two highly successful undergraduate degree programmes: the BA ESPS and the BA ESPS: Dual Degree. Students on the BA ESPS combine a specialism in any one of eight humanities and social sciences with a broad base in European history, law, politics and philosophy, fluency in a European language (or two) and the opportunity to spend a year abroad at a partner university. Students on the BA ESPS: Dual Degree also combine a specialism in any one of six humanities and social sciences, fluency in a European language and the opportunity to study the first two years in France.

We are seeking applications for an Administrative Assistant who will assist with the administration of both programmes and the delivery of an efficient and timely service across a wide range of areas including admissions, student records, examinations and assessment, committee servicing, the website and general administrative support.

The successful candidate must have excellent IT skills and be able to work both independently and as part of a team, often under pressure. The role requires consistent attention to detail as well as excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to deal effectively with a wide range of people both within UCL and externally.

Experience of working in student administration within Higher Education is a requirement for the post. An understanding of humanities/social sciences degrees and familiarity with student information systems is desirable. Applicants should be educated to A level standard or equivalent professional experience.

Applicants should apply online. To access further details about the position and how to apply please click on the ‘Apply’ button below.

Latest time for the submission of applications: 12:00pm.

Interview Date: 2nd October 2017

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented within UCL at this level.

This position does not meet the resident labour market test under UK Visas and Immigration rules and therefore UCL would be unable to obtain the right to work for non-EEA nationals whose employment would require a Tier 2 visa.
