We are seeking to recruit a Senior Student Experience Officer on an open-ended, part-time contract working 17.5 hours per week. It is expected that the working pattern will be Wednesday-Friday, but we are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities with our staff which benefit both the individual and the University.
Reporting to the Student Experience Manager, the Senior Student Experience Officer will have responsibility for the effective and efficient delivery of taught programme administration at all levels across the department, including dual degrees. You will ensure delivery of a high-quality, customer-focussed service to students and staff and the timely delivery of the administrative processes which underpin core business functions throughout the student journey. This includes internal and external communications, registrations, assessment, teaching delivery and timetables, pastoral care, quality assurance, the management of module and programme information, and student events.
With previous experience of working in a busy office environment, you will be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to provide accurate and comprehensive information to both students and staff members. You will have experience of working in and contributing to a diverse team, managing a complex workload independently and have a high-level of attention to detail. You will also have experience of, and aptitude for, working with Microsoft Office and Google software. You must be able to motivate, organise and provide guidance to develop the skills of others and be able to deputise for the Student Experience Manager as appropriate.
