The Role

We are now recruiting for people to fill our two Academic Assistant and one reserve Academic Assistant roles for our Online Project Schools. Students will work on a project at home and be supported by tutors online, both synchronously and asynchronously, through the Open University’s VLE.

Academic Assistants provide administrative, clerical, and some technical support to Module Directors to help ensure the smooth running of the residential school. You should have excellent organisational skills, a practical approach to problem-solving and a ‘can do’ attitude.  

Academic Assistants should impart a sense of energy and enthusiasm to staff and students, provide administrative support to the director, and help to create an open and friendly environment where students and staff feel free to raise any problems or worries and to seek help from staff or other students.   

Where residential schools are online, Academic Assistants are responsible for administrative and organisational support to help ensure the smooth running of the online residential school. Students work at home and are supported by tutors online, both synchronously and asynchronously, through the Open University’s VLE.  

Please note that this is a standard job description for this role and not all activities listed will need to be take place.
