Heads of /Senior Managers will have an understanding of the priorities, cultures and pressures of a research-led university and of academic processes and the structure of the academic year.

The Head of Student Enquiry Management leads the Student Services Frontline team’s day-to-day operations and is responsible for ensuring continued successful delivery of business-as-usual enquiry management and meeting our defined service level agreements (SLAs).
