Academic Administration at Royal Holloway is organised into six School Administration teams and a Doctoral School,  which are all part of the Academic Services directorate; a single professional service which supports the student journey. Administration teams have been designed to provide a consistent and effective service to both students and staff.

The Doctoral School Administration Assistant role will be responsible for a variety of tasks and processes to support the research students’ lifecycle and to provide support to academic research staff. This will include operational administration, which requires a high level of accuracy and attention to detail, and dealing with a broad range of queries at the Doctoral School Helpdesk.  They will support the Doctoral School’s vision and service standards and work closely with colleagues across the College to help ensure that a well-co-ordinated service is provided to research degree students and staff.

Candidates should have excellent organisational skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team, and enjoy managing a number of tasks simultaneously.  In addition, they should be enthusiastic about providing excellent customer service to students, academics and administrative staff and be able to demonstrate commitment to working in Higher Education administration.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey, where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
