Location: Cambridge
Salary: £25,742 to £29,605 per annum
Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 5th December 2023
Closes: 18th January 2024
Job Ref: GC39652

Applications are invited for a new Undergraduate Course Administrator post in the Department of Architecture.  The role will support two programmes: the Architecture Tripos, and the new Design Tripos which accepts its first entrants in October 2024. 

The role reports to the Faculty Programmes Co-ordinator (Undergraduates) and is available on a permanent, part-time (22 hours per week) basis, with a minimum of four working days per week covering the core working hours of 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. It is expected that the role-holder will work in the office during Term Time, but there could be flexibility at other times.

The role will cover a range of tasks including:

 - support to the teaching staff for course administration and delivery

 - assist with uploading course material and setting up lecture recordings in the University's VLE (Moodle)

 - run student surveys for course selections, Studio preferences and feedback

 - assist with the annual monitoring returns to the national architecture bodies (RIBA and ARB)

 - maintain administrative systems, processes and databases

 - general administrative tasks such as organising meetings, making room bookings, record-keeping.

The role would suit someone with broad administrative experience, not necessarily in the Higher Education sector, although it would be useful. The successful candidate will have a good eye for detail and will be equally happy working alone or as part of a team. Excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to use and learn IT systems are essential.  Training will be provided but self-teaching will also be involved.

With the new Design degree and developments in the teaching of Architecture, it is a time of change in the Department which opens up opportunities for the person who takes on this new role.  Architecture is already in the vanguard, being the first department in the University to offer an entirely assessed undergraduate degree.  If you are interested and have relevant skills and experience, we should like to hear from you.

Please see the further particulars document below for further information about the role. Please see the final page for 'How to Apply'. On the online application form you should explain the reasons for applying and set out clearly how your knowledge, skills and experience match the requirements of the role listed in the Further Information document, along with relevant examples.
