Department for Continuing Education, Online Education Hub, Rewley House, central Oxford & Ewert House, Summertown

The Oxford University Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE) is seeking to appoint a Project Administrator to co-ordinate the work of Oxford's new Online Education Hub (OEH).

The University of Oxford is known for its distinctive teaching approach – born of a rich sense of place. Its ambition is for greater reach, sharing excellence with the world. Oxford's OEH is a strategic service that enables academic teams to sustainably grow their online curricula. The Hub aims to broaden access for non-traditional students; engage intellectually curious citizenry; drive innovation in online education; and develop alternative revenue sources.

You'll be joining a team culture that's deeply committed to enabling world- class student experiences and to supporting and empowering one another.

About the role

The Project Administrator for the Hub will support a wide range of digital and educational projects through clerical efficiency and an excellent service mentality.

The role will help proactively organize and plan agendas among a complex set of groups, helping stakeholders to make timely decisions and drive progress, for example through report writing, liaising with project teams/SCRUM masters, diary management, action/risk logging, and room and event planning.

The Project Administrator needs to work in an iterative and agile fashion, responding to fast paced and changeable agendas. The role will also work collaboratively with the wider project community – notably within the Digital Transformation Program, sharing best practices, connecting people, highlighting risks, and fostering inter-departmental sharing of resource.

Ultimately, the role requires a passion for innovation in education and a commitment to meet and surpass the needs of Oxford's contemporary online students.

This is a full-time (1.0 FTE) position, available on a fixed-term (2 year) contract.

About you

The OEH is looking for a candidate that is proud of their organisational abilities and sees how important their contribution in co-ordinating others can be toward our shared success.

You'll be quick to immerse yourself among new teams and proactively build relationships right across the University.

The right candidate needs an eye for detail, managing complex timelines and budgets through formal university governance.

You'll feel comfortable knowing when extensive consultation is warranted, and when to feel empowered to act.

Everyone in our team has a ‘growth mindset', where we're eager to learn and eager to teach others. You'll be joining a team that is excited to hear your ideas on how we continuously improve, and we're all expected to speak-up.

But - most importantly - you'll have a passion for delivering value for Oxford's online students and the transformative power of quality education.
