Job: Programmes Assistant (Education Programmes)

Grade 4: £22,417–£25,941 (with discretionary range to £28,331) per annum

Do you enjoy working with a wide range of people? Are you excited by how technology can enable people to learn and connect? Are you calm under pressure and quick to think on your feet to solve problems, giving others peace of mind that you have things covered? If so, we want to hear from you.

We are looking for an organised and conscientious Programmes Assistant to play a crucial part in our teaching as we welcome our 2020/21 MPP students. This is a new role for the School, as we respond to and embrace the challenges of new modes of teaching and look to enhance our students’ experience of the School’s MPP and DPhil programmes – as well as within executive education and other online courses.

Your responsibilities will include supporting the 'virtual in-person', immersive learning experience which the School has been developing since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and administration to support the delivery of hybrid (online and in-person) teaching. You will play an important part in maintaining the excellence of our teaching programmes through a challenging period.

The successful candidate will have: excellent customer service skills and the ability to adopt a personable and diplomatic approach; a calm, reassuring manner and the resilience and quick thinking to deal with problems that arise in a professional way; and the ability to work well with a range of colleagues, with a flexible, can-do approach. You will be self-motivated and willing to adapt to the changing needs and priorities in the team and across the School. You will need strong IT skills and evidence of the application of these in a professional context, including experience of Microsoft Outlook, Word and Teams, and other video conferencing platforms. Finally, excellent focus and the ability to maintain enthusiasm and commitment for a sustained period will be required for teaching sessions.

For full details of the post and employee benefits, please refer to the further particulars and to the School website.

The deadline for applications is 12:00 on Friday 7 August 2020. Interviews will be held online on Thursday 13 August 2020.
