An exciting opportunity has arisen for two highly motivated Examinations and Assessment Co-ordinators to join a busy team within the Business and Social Sciences College Office. We are seeking to appoint to one permanent role and also one fixed-term role for a period of 18 months.

Working closely with the Examinations and Assessment Lead, you will assist with co-ordinating the day-to-day running, organisation and delivery of the examinations and assessment processes for all programmes and modules in BSS.

You will provide administrative support for Examination Boards, chasing, entering and checking all assessment marks, updating the student records system (SITS) and informing students of results by strict deadlines. You will also assist with the collection of assessment data, reviewing submission deadline schedules, setting up coursework submission links on our VLE (Blackboard) and formatting examination papers. In addition, the role involves providing confidential administrative support for exceptional circumstances and disciplinary processes, including providing advice to students, recording accurate information, organizing panels and informing students of decisions.
