Role Description


Hull York Medical School is committed to transforming the health of people within the region and beyond – through its students, staff and the impact of its teaching and research. The joint medical school of the Universities of Hull and York, Hull York Medical School has a reputation as one of the UKs most exciting, contemporary schools.

It is an exciting time to join Hull York Medical School. Following the Department of Health initiative to expand the number of medical school places in England, Hull York Medical School has been awarded an additional 90 places a year from 2020 which represents a 69% increase in places.


The postholder will join an existing team of administrators responsible for the effective and efficient development, delivery and evaluation for our medical programme. This is a key student-facing support role in the School and you must have the skills and experience needed to be able to deliver a high-level professional service to students. You will be responsible for providing accurate information to students, scheduling teaching sessions, supporting cross-site student activities including exams, updating learning materials, maintaining records and preparing documents. You will need to build close working relationships with a range of administrative, academic and clinical colleagues across our university and NHS office locations.

The post is based at the University of York campus, with occasional travel to Hull and NHS sites as required.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed

You should have experience of working as an administrator in a busy office within a large complex organisation and ideally will have worked in a student-facing or customer service focussed role. You will be highly organised, with a positive attitude and a flexible approach to work.
