This is an exciting role that would suit someone who enjoys fast-paced and varied working, at the heart of a College committed to excellence in education and research. The Administrator for the Provost’s Office (APO) supports the Provost and Fellows of the Governing Body.

The APO has a central role in connecting the College’s communities and must be equally at ease engaging with academics, Old Members (alumni), senior external figures, students and staff. The postholder must be good at building strong working relationships across the College’s various teams and enjoy a mix of predictable work and responding to the wide variety of demands on the College, especially during undergraduate term time. They must ensure that the College’s values are reflected in all contacts and, due to their central position, they play an important part in maintaining and promoting the friendliness and mutual support that is at the heart of Queen’s culture.

The APO is responsible for: arranging events from small meetings to the coordination of major College feasts; managing the Provost’s diary and travel; and carrying out ad hoc projects for the Provost and other senior Fellows as needed. The post requires intensive work and flexibility during undergraduate term times, and annual leave is typically taken outside of term. Queen’s is very much a place-based community, with beautiful historic buildings and catered accommodation for students, therefore at least 80% of time must be worked in College.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 11.59 pm 28 April 2024.

We aim to hold interviews during the week commencing  6th May 2024.
