Academic Administrator (student support)

We are seeking an outstanding academic administrator to become a member of the Clinical School administration team which is based in the Medical School Office at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

There are approximately 185 students in each of the three years of the Clinical Medicine course, and teaching and examining is provided by a large number of academic and/or clinical staff, drawn from clinical and non-clinical departments across the division. Students also attend clinical placements in partner NHS Trusts, and in primary care settings. As the responsibility for teaching and examining is shared across multiple departments in the Division, as well as the partner NHS trusts and primary care providers, the organisation of the course is more complex than for most other undergraduate programmes in the university.

As well as providing general administrative support to the Director of Clinical Studies and the Associate Director of Clinical Studies, the postholder will have areas of work which are their own responsibility:

  • The postholder will be the Disability Co-ordinator for Clinical Medicine students. This involves meeting students, putting teaching and assessment adjustments in place in accordance with Student Support Plans, and sharing information with the relevant staff at appropriate times.
  • The postholder will also organise the Educational Supervisors’ programme. They will assist with the annual recruitment of supervisors, send regular email reminders of key dates, organise induction and training sessions for supervisors, allocate students, organise payment and act as a point of contact for supervisors and students.

The successful candidate for this important position will have the ability to work systematically and to a high level of accuracy, with excellent attention to detail. You will need to be a self-starter, to be proactive, and to be able to undertake tasks with a minimal level of supervision. You will need to have a high level of emotional intelligence. You will display a high level of personal discretion and judgement and have a mature and responsible attitude to your work.

To make informal enquiries about the post, please contact Mrs Kirstie Vreede (Assistant Registrar, Medical Sciences Division) on 01865 285782 or email: [email protected]

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. As part of your application you will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement.
