Queen Mary University of London is a Russell Group university, operating across five campuses in London and at sites across Europe and Asia. We have close to 4,500 members of staff and more than 25,000 students. The profile of our undergraduate students in London is distinctive for a Russell Group university - 91 per cent are from state school; 60 per cent are BAME; 42 per cent are first into Higher Education; and 27 per cent are from households where the annual taxable income is less than £10k. We teach and research across a wide range of subjects.
In April 2017 Queen Mary was awarded a grant from the HEFCE Catalyst Fund: Student Safeguarding on Campus for a project addressing sexual harassment on campus. This was in response to Universities UK’s Harassment Taskforce report on the need for universities to do more to address this problem. This is a fixed term post working to progress actions identified as part of the above project and aiming to support the university’s plans in tackling sexual violence, harassment and hate crime. The post holder works with colleagues from across the university and the Students' Union to develop new roles, reporting pathways, processes and systems in support of those plans.
This post is within the Student Life team; one of three student wellbeing teams based in Student and Academic Services. Student Life positively influences the student experience through education, communication and events in relation to student health, diversity, music and faith. The team works with the Students’ Union and external partners towards the development of services in the above areas.
The successful candidate will have a relevant degree or equivalent professional qualifications alongside experience of project management and the ability to act independently. The postholder will also have effective time management skills, confidence and accuracy in written and verbal communication. Good understanding of and commitment to equality and diversity issues, as well as good knowledge of the UK higher education sector are essential.
The post is part time (21 hours per week), fixed term appointment for 1 year, to commence as soon as possible. Starting salary will be in the range of £37,411 - £44,015 per annum (pro rata), inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
