The South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP) is an AHRC funded programme to attract the brightest arts and humanities graduates into an integrated training programme that will support them through doctoral training studies. Working with the management team of the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP) in the Arts and Humanities, the Administrator is a key figure in and the first point for the Bristol located SWW DTP Hub.
The postholder will also work with diverse stakeholders across the consortium (Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, Aberystwyth University, the University of Bath, Bath Spa University, the University of Bristol, Cardiff University, Cranfield University, the University of Exeter, the University of Reading, the University of Southampton and the University of the West of England) and with our key non-HEI partners including Aardman Animation, Arts Council South West, Bristol Culture, British Library, Cornwall Museum Partnership, French National Archives, Historic England, and National Trust South West.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an established but expanding programme. The original SWW DTP was created in 2014 and currently has c. 200 students and the consortium recently secured funding from the AHRC for a second DTP (which will run from 2019/2020 - 2028/2029). The SWW DTP has therefore expanded to offer two programmes being run concurrently, SWW DTP1 and SWW DTP2. The first SWW DTP2 cohort is about to join the programme and recruitment for the second cohort of SWW DTP2 students is about to commence. The timing of this opportunity gives the role holder the chance to contribute to and help shape the evolution of infrastructure to meet the increased demands of SWW DTP2 and the merger of both programmes.
The Administrator will be a central part of an experienced team. Team working will be an important part of the experience however the postholder will also be expected to work independently, solving problems and making decisions within their fields of responsibility. The Administrator is responsible for ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of the Hub and the delivery of a range of central management and co-ordination functions required to ensure effective day-to-day operations of the SWW DTP. This includes but is not limited to; data management and analysis, the co-ordination of student administration, administrative support for training, management of student engagement, student support, financial administration of the award and DTP communications.
The Administrator will also service and minute multiple Boards.
The position is offered on a full-time basis. For informal enquiries please contact: Chantelle Payne, SWW DTP Manager; firstname.lastname@example.org
