Queen Mary Academy

Education & Learning Administrator – Teaching Recognition & Student Engagement



The Queen Mary Academy is a flagship department at Queen Mary University of London, and its purpose is to provide academic practice development for academic staff, teaching staff, research staff, and research students. Guided by the University’s 2030 Strategy and associated enabling plans, the Academy delivers development programmes that enables the delivery of an inclusive educational environment where students and staff flourish and reach their true potential. The Academy will offer development opportunities to academic, teaching staff, research staff and research students at all stages of their career, from teaching assistants through to the professoriate.


Located within the Office of the Principal, the Queen Mary Academy reports to the Vice-Principal (Education) and has a dotted-line report to the Vice-Principal (Research) to ensure strategic alignment in our approach. The Academy also works closely with colleagues from academic, doctoral college, research services, academy registry and council secretariat and professional development colleagues to deliver a comprehensive academic practice development portfolio.


In this role you will be responsible for supporting a wide range of activities and will be expected to work seamlessly across the range of the Academy’s provision. In addition to supporting the general work of the Academy, you will be responsible for delivering and coordinating all aspects of the administration of our teaching recognition programmes. This will include panel events, workshops, drop-in clinics, the annual Teaching and Learning Conference and a diverse range of projects including the new Student Enhanced Engagement and Development (SEED) Framework. The ability to be flexible as the portfolio of work evolves will be crucial.


You will have a varied and busy workload, ensuring efficiency, effectiveness, and high levels of customer service across all of these broad range of activities. This will include responsibility for accurate and timely data, record-keeping, implementation and enhancement of learning management systems, events organization and a broad range of other administrative activity related to the Academy and the Teaching Recognition Programmes.  As the Queen Mary Academy is evolving within the university, operating a new and dynamic model of education development for all academic staff will be essential, and you will need to exercise excellent written and oral communication skills and flexible ways of working to effectively liaise with a wide-range of stakeholders.


The post is a full time (35 hours per week), permanent appointment. Starting salary will be in the range of £27,742 - £34,220 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
