An opportunity has arisen within WMG for an Academic Quality Administrative Assistant to support to the Academic Quality Officer and other senior programme management staff, and co-ordinate the teaching and learning administration of WMG’s programmes, including examination board administration and support for Academic appeals.

Your previous experience will have been gained in a challenging administrative role, preferably in a Higher Education teaching and learning environment, and you will have an understanding of overseas programmes and qualifications, and of the issues that could be associated with academic credit systems and requirements for the award of a degree.

You will have excellent communications skills, and the ability to adapt your fluid writing style for different audiences, including many international correspondents. Experience of accessing and maintaining databases is essential, as is the ability to adopt a consistent approach to reviewing and updating website content across multiple sites.

You will be a strong team player, with the ability to set your own priorities with minimum guidance. You will work accurately under pressure and to tight deadlines, displaying sharp attention to detail at all times.

Qualified to a minimum of A-level standard or equivalent, you will ideally hold an honours degree. Experience of Academic Quality Assurance in a previous role is desirable, but not essential.

In return we will provide you with a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 26 days holiday plus Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
