Engagement and Admissions Officer
This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a team supporting two new courses: our 4-year MBiol undergraduate course and our brand new DPhil in Biology, while contributing to the Department’s commitment to inclusivity. This new people-focused role offers the exciting prospect of combining outreach, Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (ED&I), disability support and undergraduate admissions.
You will work with the Biology Communications and Engagement team on a range of engagement and outreach activities, take the lead on student-related ED&I issues and mental health within the remit of the Department and act as the Disability Coordinator. You will also manage all aspects of the MBiol undergraduate admissions, working with the academic coordinator for undergraduate admissions.
You will have experience of working in a student administration role, managing student administration processes, and an understanding of undergraduate outreach activities. You will have outstanding interpersonal and active listening skills, and the ability to gain the trust of staff and students. A flexible approach to work with a ‘can do’ attitude is essential, along with excellent organisation skills and the ability to manage multiple work streams and prioritise as necessary. You will be committed to equality and valuing diversity. Administrative experience in a higher education environment is desirable, but not essential.
This post is available as a part-time job share position (50% of full time).
If you would like to discuss the role and the department in more detail, please contact Helene Augar, Senior Academic Administrator, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria, and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application.
The closing date is Monday 13 June 2022.
Interviews will be held on Friday 24 June 2022.
