Oxford Saïd Business School is recruiting for an Examinations Support Administrator to join the Student and Programme Services (SPS) unit on a permanent, full-time basis.

The Examinations Support Administrator is a key role within the SPS unit’s Programme and Examination Services team which delivers support for the School’s full-time and executive degrees and diplomas. The SPS unit was established in April 2015 to provide seamless quality and delivery of the student and participant experience across all degree and executive education programmes at the Business School. This unit of 100+ professional staff supports admissions, programmes and career development.

Assessment is a critical component of all degree and diploma programmes. Programmes are assessed continuously throughout the year by a mixture of: examinations, projects, presentations, assignments and class participation. You will report to the Senior Assessment Manager and provide administrative support for the day-to-day delivery of assessment for all degree and diploma programmes.

This is a responsible, demanding and pivotal role requiring you to perform sometimes complex administrative coordination. You will work closely with the Senior Assessment Manager and Examination Administrators, supporting a broad set of people responsible for delivery and support across the School’s range of degree and diploma programmes. You will collaborate with colleagues and stakeholders internally and externally to ensure flawless logistical arrangements for assessment delivery and a world-class student experience.

To be considered for shortlisting, you must demonstrate that you are an extremely organised individual with excellent interpersonal and organisational skills and a strong attention to detail. You will need to demonstrate your initiative, sound judgement, confidentiality and good team ethic, and have the ability to work both independently and within a team, working to manage multiple conflicting priorities and deadlines. You must have a strong educational background, strong IT skills and be prepared to familiarise yourself with university assessment policy and regulation and provide expert advice to students, faculty and other members of staff.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Monday 11 February 2019.
