You will work as part of the University timetabling team to ensure the delivery of an optimum timetable that meets both student and staff needs. To do so you will be responsible for a designated suite of programmes within a department, school or cluster and will spend a significant amount of your time based with them locally. It will be critical that you build relationships with academic and professional services staff within a given area and develop in depth programme knowledge.
