Its remit is to support the University’s strategic ambitions and to deliver, where appropriate, institution wide change, affecting improvements in key strategic areas to enhance the Swansea student experience. Academic Services is proud to hold the Cabinet Office’s Customer Service Excellence Award and Investors in People Silver Award and will continue to ensure service excellence through engagement, partnership and innovation.

This role will suit applicants who are highly organised, proactive, and able to work to tight deadlines under pressure, anticipating problems which may arise.
