This is your opportunity to join a dedicated Apprenticeship Team supporting the roll out of our ambitious plans to grow our established Degree Apprenticeship offer, which provides a significant area of development for the University. 

In this role you will complete an 18-month training programme that will cover all aspects of the role, delivered through in-house training and a blend of day-release, work-based and on-line learning.  During your apprenticeship you will learn new skills and knowledge whilst achieving a nationally recognised Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship qualification.  You will have a chance to work with skilled and experienced members of the Apprenticeships Team who will help you achieve this goal.

You will be involved in a wide range of administrative tasks, including communication with internal and external clients, preparing reports and data inputting on university systems and national portals.  You will be a part of a dedicated team of staff who comprise the Technical Education and Apprenticeship Hub and have regular contact with colleagues in academic schools and professional services, to gain a good understanding of the apprentice learner journey.

This role has been newly created and is focused on administrative tasks associated with our role as an End Point Assessment Organisation. In order to be successful in this role, we are seeking candidates who can demonstrate the following:

  • Experience of working as part of a team to meet deadlines
  • Good written and verbal communication skills
  • A strong eye for detail and accuracy
  • Confident in the use of IT packages (such as Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft Office) 
  • Ability to prioritise tasks efficiently

College attendance and successful completion of these studies is an essential requirement of this Apprenticeship. Your off-the-job training time will be the equivalent of one day/week. At the moment, you will be asked to work remotely, with views to go back to the office at the start of the next academic year in an agile working system.
