Administrative & Support Vacancies

Student Programmes Administrator

The College has a long history of working to open access to a world class education for under-represented communities. To support this aim, the College runs a Bridging/Transition to University Programme for incoming undergraduates and a Thrive Programme for existing students, to help develop skills in academic study, career progression and personal wellbeing and development. 

Girton College is looking to appoint an excellent administrator to support and act as the primary internal and external interface for both programmes.

In addition to their administrative skills, the successful candidate will be able to work well with fellows and students cross-departmentally and will possess the ability to work independently and show initiative, an appreciation of deadlines and an ability to plan and coordinate the delivery of a programme of activities.  Furthermore, a desire and interest in working with young people and students will be essential. 

 A satisfactory Standard DBS Check is necessary for this role (to be acquired on appointment).

Applications are welcome from candidates of all backgrounds particularly from those belonging to groups that are underrepresented in similar roles among Cambridge Colleges.

We offer 34 days’ annual leave, inclusive of Bank Holidays (pro-rata for part-time employees), contributory pension scheme, on-site parking, use of gym and swimming pool, free lunch plus other benefits commensurate with working for a large Cambridge University College.
