    The Assessment Co-Ordinators, as part of the Assessment Team, are responsible for the delivery of all administrative processes which support the University's Assessment Boards, including the production of all student outcomes and relevant reports for the board and the processes and systems which support this. Working within a complex schedule prescribed by the academic year, the post holder will plan and manage their workload, in conjunction with their Team, to ensure delivery to challenging and often conflicting deadlines. The post holder will need to meet these operational deadlines, whilst maintaining the highest standards of accuracy, effectiveness and customer focus. The post holder will also be expected to work collaboratively to support other activities and events, at critical times, that the wider department is responsible for delivering.

    We want you to be able to carry out your work in a way that best supports UON and our students, but also you as an individual.

With Smarter Working you can work with increased flexibility, if you would like to, which can facilitate greater freedom and autonomy.

    About Us

    Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit differently.

    We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That's why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.

    We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.

    Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that we do.

    Right to Work

    All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.

    Due to the requirements laid out by UK Visas and Immigration regarding Right to Work in the UK, the University can only accept applications from individuals who currently have a status allowing them to work in the UK for this position.

    Due to this criteria we regret that we are unable to offer sponsorship at this time.


    The University of Northampton is committed to providing a vibrant, ethical and sustainable work, study and living environment that values equality, diversity and inclusion.

    This commitment, along with our legal and moral obligations, provides an inclusive environment for staff, students and the public who may be affected by our activities.

    Together @ UON confirms our commitment to equality and inclusion, underpinned by our belief in taking action. We are dedicated to creating an environment that celebrates equality and harnesses the power of diversity.
