The Role and the Department

The Service is part of the Student & Academic Services Directorate (SASD), which provides a professional administrative support service to staff, students and potential students of Durham University.

The Academic Registrar is the head of the department and is responsible to the PVC Education for its management. The following services fall under the remit of the Student and Academic Support Directorate:

They will play a key part in supporting a customer-focused, empathic, efficient and professional service working with students, support staff in College and Departments and other key staff within the University.

The post holder will be required to work 4 days each week, each day being 5.25 hours duration

You must be a flexible team-worker able to take responsibility for managing a varied workload to a high standard. You must be able to deal with students experiencing financial hardship with empathy, sensitivity and warmth. A high level of accuracy, sometimes under pressure, is essential. You will be dealing with highly confidential, and potentially sensitive, information and must ensure that it is kept in accordance with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and in the strictest confidence.

SASD operates a hybrid working policy which allows a level of flexibility within the working week.
