The University of Bristol has almost 15,500 undergraduate and over 4,500 postgraduate students.  Providing administrative support to these students and the academic processes within the individual Schools across the University can be highly challenging but also highly rewarding.  The University is seeking exceptional administrators to be part of its Faculty Student Administration function providing this support.

The role

The role of a Faculty Student Administrator (FSTA) is wide ranging. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a number of competencies including attention to detail, flexibility in approach to work and the ability to manage often conflicting deadlines.  The ability to work under your own initiative and with a high degree of self-motivation is also required.

Ideally you will already have some relevant experience and possess the communication, drive and customer care skills to deliver a high quality service to a range of stakeholders at all levels.  Experience of working with a range of IT systems and software, in particular MS Excel, is also strongly preferred.

The selection process

Applications are now open for these exciting opportunities.  The University is interested in receiving applications for these roles on both an open ended and fixed term basis and will be using a centralised recruitment process to progress applications.

Once we have received your application, we will conduct an initial first stage review of how well your application demonstrates that you meet the selection criteria so it is important that you tailor your application to meet these requirements using examples from your previous experiences. If you meet our initial criteria, you will be asked to complete a set of tests online which will assess your computer literacy along with situational judgement exercises that aim to replicate the type of activities you will face in the role.

If you are successful at stage one and two, you will then be invited to a selection and assessment interview here at the University. Candidates who are successful at this stage of the process will then be invited to attend a final interview to meet the recruiting managers from the relevant academic School. Success at this final stage will lead to an offer of employment from the recruiting school.

It will usually take around six to eight weeks to get from your initial application to a potential job offer.
