About the role:
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Executive Assistant to work with the Institutional Lead for the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP). Our submission to the TEF is a key strategic priority for ARU; its preparation will require close collaboration between academic and professional services colleagues across the institution, and with the Students’ Union. ARU’s strategic compact with CUHP also involves collaborative working with academic and professional services colleagues across the university and developing key relationships with external stakeholders at the University of Cambridge and three NHS Trusts. As Executive Assistant, you will provide effective and efficient administrative assistance to ensure excellent progress on these two important projects. A wide range of administrative functions will be involved, including co-ordinating complex diaries, planning and servicing meetings, sourcing and presenting management information, and assisting the Institutional Lead with high-profile papers and reports.
With a degree, and/or appropriate levels of professional experience, you will have excellent oral and written communication skills, and excellent interpersonal skills for working with internal and external stakeholders. Your IT skills will be strong; you will be confident in working with and between the suite of Microsoft Office applications, and providing positive and proactive executive support on a wide range of tasks. Ideally, you will have some knowledge of Higher Education national regulation, and/or skills and talent policy matters – but a full briefing on the content of the projects will be provided and a positive attitude toward learning new things is welcomed. Your accuracy, time-management, and ability to work both independently and with the Institutional Lead (sometimes to tight deadlines) will be excellent.
Please note this post is part-time, 18.5 hours per week and fixed-term for one year.
Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Claire Pike, Institutional Lead for TEF and CUHP, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
