The Governance and Executive Support Office is looking for an Executive Support Manager. This is an exciting opportunity to work with and alongside the University’s Senior Executive Team, in a high profile and fast-paced role.

Set within a broader Division that encompasses Strategic Planning and Business Intelligence, the role will primarily involve ensuring that an excellent standard of service is provided to the University’s Senior Executive Team, including by managing and supporting the Executive Support Team and by writing and developing high-quality reports, papers and policy. The successful candidate will also support the University’s Incident and Crisis Management Framework.

The Executive Support Manager will also assist with the wider remit of the Governance and Executive Support Office as appropriate, including by servicing key University committees and meetings (including by collating and finalising agendas and other papers, taking minutes and progressing actions as appropriate).

The successful candidate will feel confident in working with very senior managers, be able to provide supportive line-management to the Executive Support Team and be able to manage and prioritise a varied workload. He/she will have exceptional attention to detail and ensure that all tasks are completed to agreed deadlines and procedures. He/she will be able to communicate effectively and to build productive working relationships with key contacts, including those at a very senior level.

Experience of professional administration and governance within a higher education institution, or another complex organisation, would be a significant advantage.

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
