The Royal College of Art is the UK’s only entirely postgraduate art and design university. 2017 marks the 180th anniversary of its foundation as the Government School of Design, and the 50th anniversary of its Royal Charter. Its continued pre-eminence in teaching and research is reflected in the College’s ranking as the world’s number one art and design university in the QS World University Rankings. In 2017/18 the College will have some 2,100 students registered for MA, MRes, MPhil and PhD degrees and over 400 full- and part-time academic, technical and administrative staff.
The IT, Library and Technical Services (ILTS) directorate includes Library, Special Collections, IT Services, Technical and Audio-Visual services and works closely with the four academic Schools and the Research Office to provide support for students and staff.
The College is seeking to appoint a full-time administrator to support the delivery, coordination, organisation and administration of services provided by ILTS. The role will support the General Manager and the heads of services in pursuit of excellent standards of postgraduate education and an unrivalled student experience. The role will span all elements of administration, across the team’s and the College’s activities, including work on planning and development, record keeping, timetabling for workshop access and other supporting functions (e.g. Library inductions), the management and coordination of College FOI requests, the management of diaries of the Director and Heads of Service, the management and coordination of Show activities, the management and coordination of Executive Education courses and improvements to the  dissemination of ILTS-related information through our Intranet pages and other mechanisms.
It is essential that candidates are educated to degree level or equivalent and have previous experience of working in higher education. The successful candidate will have administrative experience of working in a busy customer-focused environment, along with the ability to manage and prioritise workload, and will also have a high level of accuracy and attention to detail. Experience of using financial management software such as Agresso is essential, along with proficiency in the use of productivity suites (email, calendar documents, spreadsheets, databases) such as Microsoft Office or Google for work.
