Proctors' Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford

Grade 7: £36,024 - £44,263 p.a.

The University of Oxford is a stimulating work environment, which enjoys an international reputation as a world-class centre of excellence. Our research plays a key role in tackling many global challenges, from reducing our carbon emissions to developing vaccines during a pandemic.

The Proctors' Office is an independent and discrete body within the University, made up of a permanent secretariat that advises and guides the annually elected Proctors and the Assessor in their work, and has responsibility for student discipline, complaints, and appeals.

The two Proctors and the Assessor are senior officers and trustees of the University, each elected by a college, typically from amongst its fellowship, to serve for a one-year period. They are given considerable powers to act on the University's behalf in matters of central importance to its functioning and its reputation. They have independent and ultimate governance and scrutiny oversight of the entire institution.

The Proctors' Office secretariat provides guidance, advice, and sound counsel to the Proctors and Assessor in their role, providing knowledge and continuity across Proctorial years in the application and observance of University legislation, policy and practice in governance and service delivery.

The Proctors' Office is responsible for the management and resolution of high volumes of student casework covering examinations, academic appeals, complaints, and student conduct, undertaking the investigation and determination of these matters against the relevant statutes and regulations.

The post-holder will work closely with the Proctors, Head, and Deputy Head of the Proctors' Office to ensure the efficient and fair handling of individual student cases, in accordance with the relevant University rules, regulations and procedures, and consistent with the expectations of the Office for Students (OfS) and the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA) on the handling of student cases.

You will have an investigative or a legally trained background and experience in the considered application of statute and regulation to individual casework.

This position is offered full time on a permanent contract and offers the opportunity for some hybrid working.
