The University Governance team is looking for an Assistant Governance Officer. This is an exciting opportunity to work with and alongside the senior team to ensure that the University’s academic and executive decision-making bodies operate professionally and effectively. This is a high-profile role, working with members of high-level academic and executive decision-making bodies to oversee the constitutional operation of the University as a whole.
Set within a broader team that encompasses Strategy, Planning and Change, the role primarily involves servicing key University committees and governance meetings by collating and finalising agendas and other papers, taking minutes and progressing actions as appropriate. The role also involves assisting with the coordination of key University processes such as Divisional and School Reviews.
