Role Description

Cranfield University is an international centre of excellence in research and postgraduate teaching in strategic areas of science, technology, engineering and management, directed by the needs of industry. We attract well over 4,000 masters and doctoral students each year from over 100 countries, as well as thousands more learners who attend our events and short courses for professional managers and executives.

As a unit, the CAAS is the ‘go to’ place for our learners and our teaching staff to get advice and help with their learning and teaching. The CAAS also carry out academic research on andragogy and advise on new educational methods, good practice in learning, teaching and assessment, and latest thinking in academic and professional practice. The CAAS support both staff and students and the CAAS team work very closely with the other academic and professional services teams across the university.

Masterships are a suite of Master's level degree apprenticeships which form a significant and growing part of the taught educational opportunities offered by Cranfield University. Developed in response to the “Apprenticeship Levy” and an increasingly changing environment for postgraduate education this is a fast moving, responsive and dynamic area.

The core responsibility of this role is to support the Masterships Team Lead, and the other members of the wider team who are based in Schools and Professional Service Units across the university as well as maintaining high quality contact with apprentices and employers.

Ideally you will have experience of working within Higher Education, an awareness of academic support needs and be able to work well under pressure to meet deadlines. You will be experienced in balancing competing priorities without compromising your attention to detail and act as an ambassador for Masterships at Cranfield.

This role is an exciting opportunity for someone who has a ‘can do’ attitude, has a passion for education and learning, and is comfortable with change. You will have proven experience of working with admin processes and in developing customer relationships and providing excellent customer service.  You will possess strong organisational and time management skills, be an excellent communicator and a good working knowledge of Microsoft office packages would be advantageous.
