We are looking to recruit a Senior Administrative Officer for our busy Administration and Assessment Team at Winchester School of Art. We offer a competitive benefits package that includes a contributory pension scheme, a generous holiday allowance which increases with the length of service and a range of other benefits. This post will be based at Winchester School of Art.
The Administration and Assessment Team act as a first point of contact for educational matters and supports aspects of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught student lifecycle from induction through to graduation, including maintenance of student records and support for all assessment-related processes.

Excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills are required, as is a commitment to providing an excellent service. You will have the ability to adapt to change quickly, maintain receptiveness to new ideas and approaches and take an active role in identifying potential improvements in existing processes.
