This is an exciting opportunity for a self-motivated administrator with strong interpersonal skills to play an important role in supporting the work of the Vice-Chancellor’s Office.

Providing the full range of executive administrative support for both the PVC (Culture, Equality and Inclusion) and the PVC (Global and Civic Engagement), this is a high-profile role working with senior colleagues from across the University, in regular contact with members of the University Executive Team and Directors of Professional Services

The work is fast-paced and integral to delivering the University’s strategic, policy and operational objectives. You will be expected to provide high quality organisational and administrative support and will enjoy developing, implementing and managing procedures and systems to ensure that committee/meeting arrangements and materials are consistently delivered to a high standard. You will be able to manage very busy diaries and be able to maintain databases and web documents to a high level of accuracy.

Approachable and confident, with the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of individuals, you will be expected to work well using your own initiative with a varied workload within a busy, fast paced and often environment.

You will have substantial relevant experience, excellent IT skills, and a clear understanding of the role of senior staff within university settings. You will have excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills, and with the ability to maintain confidentiality, you will adopt a professional, diplomatic approach to all aspects of this exciting and challenging role.

The VCO has experienced considerable change over the past 14 months, including the appointment of a new Vice-Chancellor, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor (and Provost), two new Pro-Vice-Chancellors, and a Chief of Staff. The senior leaders are ambitious for the University and are aware that the University needs to address some key challenges. As a result, the VCO will be leading some major strategic transformation work over the coming years. The VCO moves at a fast-pace, and there is an expectation of high-quality work. 

In order to support the senior leaders of the University you will need to build good relationships right across the University, but in particular with members of the Vice-Chancellor’s Office and the University Executive Team.

Please contact Zoe Varney-Burch (E: zoevb@sussexc.ac.uk; T: 01273 678028) for informal enquiries.
