Our client, a college of the University of London and the UK's leading academic research centre are currently looking to recruit a full time temporary Academic Projects Officer, initially for 6 months. This will be to support the department in delivering initiatives which will support students and enhance their experience, along with assisting with quality assurance and policy reviews. Initially this post will be remote home working, which could be for the whole duration, although at a later date, if deemed appropriate the requirement might be to move back to the office, which will be in Sutton.
As their Academic Projects Officer, you will provide administrative and logistical support for events and bespoke training activities, particularly for student groups such as those funded by external funding programmes or those who the organisation might wish to provide additional support. You will perform research activity for comparison on similar institutions in order to support forthcoming reviews. Along with supporting other quality assurance reviews, you will be involved in implementing the roll out of a new mental wellbeing training for students and supervisors.
To be considered for this role, you will ideally have a background in a similar post within the higher education sector or a similar organisation. Excellent organisational and communication skills are essential to this role and you will be adaptable and able to pick-up-and-run with lots of different tasks. You will also have strong IT skills (particularly using Microsoft Outlook, Word and Excel) and have close attention to detail. Previous experience of organising events, project work, writing reports or committee papers and knowledge of quality assurance or policy would be advantageous.
To be considered, you must be available to start immediately.
