About Us

The King’s community is dedicated to the service of society. King’s Strategic Vision 2029 sets out our vision for the future, shaped around five priority areas: educate to inspire and improve; research to inform and innovate; serve to shape and transform; a civic university at the heart of London; and an international community that services the world. Our ambitious Education Strategy sets out the actions that we must take to transform how we teach, how and where our students learn and how we support them during their time with us.

We are part of the wider Students & Education Directorate, a collection of wide-ranging professional services in place to support King’s students and their education. As a directorate we manage the student lifecycle from application to graduation and beyond, to ensure a coherent and seamless student experience and effective administrative processes, working closely with King’s faculties to do so.

About the Role

The role leads the provision of the overall Timetabling Service, including overseeing delivery of student timetables and room allocations for all teaching, and ensuring the optimisation of space utilisation and provision of a high-quality service to staff and students. This role is pivotal in reviewing and assessing the impact of student growth, changes to the estate and the Education Strategy, and the provision of comprehensive timetabling information and data analysis.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates looking to utilise their skills and expertise in developing a first-class Timetabling service to students and colleagues across the institution. We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role.

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.

This is a full-time post, but we welcome applications from candidates seeking a flexible work pattern within our necessary service operating hours.

The role holder will:

  • Be operational responsible for an effective and efficient timetabling service
  • Have responsibility for driving a culture of service management and improvement
  • Have accountability as the business owner of the timetabling system and the operational service lead – ensuring that services are delivered, reviewed and linked into the aims of the broader university
  • Have responsibility for the provision of complex reporting on issues related to the timetabling service to senior management
  • Be responsible for the management of the Timetabling services team

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
