Graduate Studies Officer

University of Oxford - Faculty of English Language and Literature

The Faculty of English Language and Literature seeks to appoint a Graduate Studies Officer capable of playing a key role in the administration of graduate studies in a large and busy faculty. The Faculty has two Graduate Studies Officers (1.6 FTE) who are jointly responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the graduate office. This full-time post will have an initial focus on the administration of the Faculty’s Postgraduate Taught (PGT) degrees (MSt and MPhil). However, flexibility and the ability to cover the range of graduate administration are inherent in the role, and duties will be assigned between the posts to reflect workloads and individuals’ experience and abilities. The post holder will also form part of the wider administration team in the English Faculty and be expected to acquire a reasonable level of knowledge of processes ‘across the board’ and to be able to cover for colleagues.

This is a responsible and demanding position in a busy academic office, which provides an excellent opportunity to develop a wide range of administrative skills.

Applicants will have administrative experience (ideally in higher education), with meticulous attention to detail, and good communication, organisational and IT skills.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 25 October 2017.
