Role Description

Student Services work to enable an excellent experience for students during their time at the University of York.  We provide information, advice, guidance and support to students and work with them from their enrolment through to their graduation.   We also provide advice and guidance to colleagues across the University who rely on our expertise and processes to support the student lifecycle.   The work of the Service is important in ensuring that the University meets a number of statutory compliance duties.   

We are also responsible for many of the central administrative functions of the University; we maintain the student records, and support and develop the systems and processes that allow for the smooth transition of students through their studies.

We are committed to excellence and work in a collaborative and fast-moving environment. We expect staff to work flexibly and to move within teams and specialisms as they develop a rewarding career in Higher Education. In this role you will work independently and as part of a team and will be willing and able to learn policies, systems and processes quickly.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team that is responsible for student visa compliance.  You will initially be involved with ensuring that day-to-day compliance activities are actioned, including reporting change of circumstances to the Home Office (UK Visas and Immigration).  You will also support the implementation of new system developments to ensure the University’s ongoing compliance in relation to our Tier 4 visa holders.  You will help the team develop and embed new processes, review and improve existing processes and identify and develop our reporting requirements.

If you are a highly motivated individual with a good eye for detail, who communicates clearly and is committed to service improvement to support student experience, we would like to hear from you.
