Academic Quality Advisor

Bath Spa University

Are you working in quality assurance with experience of policy and compliance? This is your chance, as an Academic Quality Advisor, to really make a positive impact, play a key role and be a part of shaping the University’s approach to academic compliance and quality assurance. We are a growing team that offers you the support you need, whilst you expand your knowledge about higher education regulation and quality assurance.

This is a really exciting time for an Academic Quality Advisor to provide expert advice to both academic and professional services staff which in turn, has a positive impact on our students. Each Academic Quality Advisor has responsibility for two academic Schools of the University, offering day-to-day advice on quality assurance procedures, and reviewing programme documentation to check compliance.

You’ll also have an important role in acting as Secretary to one of the University’s sub-committees, working with  the Pro Vice-Chancellors and the Head of Academic Governance and Quality to design agendas and ensure academic governance is run efficiently and effectively.

About you

You will be reflective and enthusiastic with experience of policy and compliance in either higher education or another regulated sector. You will have the confidence and professionalism to develop and maintain productive relations with internal staff at all levels of seniority, as well as external advisors and partner staff.

As a natural problem solver with an analytical mind, you will thrive on applying your knowledge of set guidelines and procedures appropriately and have a passion for explaining complex concepts clearly to non-expert audiences. You will be given the flexibility to identify solutions for wider or complex issues, whilst playing a key role in working effectively within the team.

About us

We are Bath Spa University, passionately creative and talented individuals who share the values of respect, inclusivity, collaboration and sustainability. Together, our diverse teams bring their own unique skills, knowledge and personalities to create a friendly and forward thinking culture that harnesses support for both staff and students alike. We believe in the power of people; it is our mission to be your pillar of support and to help you realise your talent across academia and professional services.

We teach around 8,000 students on a set of campuses around Bath, with most being located at Newton Park, including a listed Georgian house and grounds, or Locksbrook Road, our new city-centre art and design campus. Our research centres focus on creative industries and humanities.

The Academic Governance and Quality team is a small friendly team of 8 colleagues and you will be well supported to expand your knowledge about higher education regulation. Our approach to hybrid working is flexible, with team members expected to attend campus for two days a week.

We open our vacancies for two weeks at a time but appreciate that talented individuals like yourself get snapped up quickly, so we will be reviewing your details as we go.
