Registry is a key central administrative Unit of the University supporting Schools, students, senior management and external stakeholders through admissions, the administration of student records, the co-ordination of international partnerships and study abroad, curriculum and timetabling records and the provision of associated reporting. Members of staff are required to work flexibly and provide support across the Unit according to the priorities of the academic cycle. The Unit actively supports the University’s strategy of improving the effectiveness and integration of administrative processes and services with various projects and cross-unit functions.

We are seeking an experienced, professional, highly motivated and organised colleague, with a commitment to excellent customer service. You will have significant experience of working in higher education administration, with proven management skills as well as knowledge and understanding of the key issues affecting students across the HE sector especially in the areas of academic achievement and assessment.

You will be a real team player with a track record of supporting colleagues by motivation, tact and enthusiasm while having a passion for delivering service improvement for all stakeholders.

You will work closely with colleagues in Admissions, Student Services, the Proctor’s Office, the Director of the Graduate School, members of the University’s senior management, Schools, Finance, and colleagues across Registry, to ensure that we provide a first-rate and joined-up service.
