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.
This is an exciting opportunity based in Progression and Awards where you will work independently and as part of a team and will need to learn policies, systems and processes quickly. The key elements of the role are calculating progression and award outcomes using the assessment criteria, maintaining the integrity of the data that underpins those decisions, and creating and maintaining programme modules. The role involves using initiative, analytical and problem solving skills to determine the cause where the system fails to reach an outcome and to arrive at a solution. You will need excellent IT skills and the ability to work with a variety of software. The role requires a high degree of accuracy and attention to detail. The role also involves running training sessions to colleagues across the University, therefore the successful applicant must feel comfortable delivering presentations.
In addition, you should demonstrate excellent customer service, be able to organise your workload effectively and have a commitment to improving processes so that we provide excellent support to our academic departments and students.
The role is initially being offered on a fixed term basis.
