At BU our vision is to create a stimulating, challenging and rewarding University experience, through sharing a unique fusion of education, research and professional practice and inspiring our students and staff to enrich the world. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, and who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences to build our global learning community.

We are offering an exciting opportunity for somebody with suitable experience to join the Faculty of Management team as our Education Service Manager on a job share basis (0.6FTE) on a fixed term basis.

The successful candidate will have proven experience in providing effective leadership, developing and managing staff within the academic administrative team.  The ability to set clear objectives for staff in a team environment in which flexibility and adaptability are key approaches in planning workloads is essential. You will be able to work collaboratively with colleagues across the Faculty, as well as across the wider University and will also have the skills to review and develop processes and ensure that the team’s workload is planned effectively.

You will be committed to developing relationships with key colleagues and have effective team working, communication, interpersonal and excellent organisational and planning skills. You will be highly motivated in managing a complex range of duties in relation to academic administration and will have the ability to interpret and work within existing policies and procedures. Experience of providing administrative services in a Higher Education environment would be an advantage but the ability to lead and manage a team and deliver service excellence is essential.

This post is available part-time for 0.6FTE on a fixed-term contract or secondment basis until 31 December 2018. If you wish to be considered as an internal secondment you must speak to your line manager first.
