Role Description

An opportunity has arisen for an Assessment and Progression Coordinator to join the Hull York Medical School. Our medical school is one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary schools, offering innovative and rigorous undergraduate and postgraduate medical and healthcare education. A collaboration between the Universities of Hull and York and the NHS, we work across University campuses, teaching hospitals and medical practices throughout the Yorkshire, Humber and North Lincolnshire regions – producing excellent doctors who are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to exceed in an ever changing NHS landscape. We were recently successful in a bid for an additional 90 undergraduate student places from 2019/20. We are also significantly growing our postgraduate programmes.

The Assessment and Progression Co-ordinator is a key member of our Assessment and Progression Team, supporting the effective and efficient operation of undergraduate and postgraduate programme assessment in the medical school. The successful candidate will be responsible for the delivery of assessments to our MB BS Medicine Gateway Year, Year 1 and Year 2 students and will develop a thorough and detailed understanding of all aspects of formative and summative assessment in those domains. You will have a demonstrable track record of delivering high quality assessments or equivalent in a student/customer focussed environment. You must role model a high professional standard and be willing to work flexibly and creatively, both independently and as part of a team, in a highly demanding environment. You will need strong IT fluency, including skills in setting up and using databases, corporate and ‘in-house’ systems.

This role requires a willingness to work occasional unsocial hours including evenings and weekends at peak times. The successful candidate will be based predominately at the University of York campus, with regular weekly travel to the University of Hull and travel to meetings, other events and clinical placement provider sites as required.

For an informal discussion please contact Sarah Fordham, Programme Manager: email –  Tel – 01482 464701.

The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community  – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
