S/he will act as the main point of contact for students and staff with queries on assessment and regulations, review current processes to identify efficiencies and act as a key interface between LSE Law and the central services on related activities.  
 
You must have very strong IT skills (particularly in relation to MS Excel) and exceptional attention to detail.
