With the launch of the University’s ‘This is Our Time 2030’ strategy and the growth in student numbers, the Student and Academic Services directorate are expanding to ensure we can fully provide the first-class services that students need to support them to succeed.
We are looking for staff who have a passion for working with students and colleagues to achieve our priorities of delivering a world class welcome to all students, enhancing the student experience through all the services we provide and demonstrating our positive impact.
The Student & Academic Services Directorate of the University of Greenwich is seeking to recruit several enthusiastic Student Information Officers to join our Student Centre team at our Medway Campus.
The post is situated within our Medway Student Centre, in a busy student facing environment where students, staff and visitors can access a wide range of student support services or be given the necessary information or guidance to help them resolve their queries and question.
The Student Information Officer role plays a vital role as the initial point of contact in supporting and responding to the wide breadth of student enquiries, delivered face-to-face, by phone, via email and any future enquiry management tools, having the necessary understanding of the specialists within the team, wider directorate, and institution to make accurate referrals or escalate enquiries to the subject matter experts.
The ideal candidate will have enthusiasm for supporting students ensuring that they are at the heart of all that we do, experience of providing administrative support in a busy and dynamic team, and a proven track record of delivering a range of user focussed services to clients and/or students.
Regular working at other University campuses (at Avery Hill and Greenwich), along with some late working and occasional weekend work to support directorate wide priorities such as registration and open days, and willingness to be part of a flexible work pattern to adequately support the delivery of a 9-5 delivery, will be an on-going requirement of this role.
