Role Description

Directorate of Estates & Campus Services

Space & Accommodation

We are looking for enthusiastic a highly motivated Space Administrator to join the Timetabling Services team.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the dynamic team that designs and maintains the academic timetable for some 25,000 staff, students and visitors across a suite of 500 lecture theatres, classrooms and labs. You will help deliver a responsive, friendly and professional timetabling service to staff and students in your designated departments and centres across the Arts & Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences faculties.  You need to demonstrate a flexible, can-do attitude towards your work and you will need to have excellent communication skills, be a solid logical thinker and show the ability to solve problems in an organised, structured fashion.

As a Space Administrator, you will spend a portion of your time working on an embedded basis in the departments and centres across our campuses that will form part of your portfolio.  This will allow you to work directly with staff and students to take local, direct action for all timetabling matters.  You will use your local presence to build up the excellent working relationships required to efficiently handle requests by email, phone and in person.

This is an exciting post for a well-rounded administrator. Experience as an administrator in an education setting, particularly in maintaining student records and/or timetabling would be a distinct advantage.  In return, we offer the opportunity to work with key colleagues across the university, to develop and demonstrate your skills and to be part of a dynamic and supportive team of colleagues.

This fixed term position is available immediately for an anticipated period of 12 months.  The post is also suitable for an existing member of University staff as a secondment opportunity.  Applications for secondment would need the agreement of your current Head of Department at the point of application.
