Senior Risk Managers Compliance and Student Protection

Other - UK Jobs

Multiple roles
Location: Bristol or London
Contract: Full-time, part-time, job share
Job requisition id: R0000383
Salary: £48,402 – £51,044 Plus generous civil service defined benefit pension
The Office for Students (OfS) is an independent regulator for higher education in England. With a focus on delivering positive outcomes for students, we ensure that students are receiving value for money through high quality academic experiences, and that they are able to access, succeed in and progress from higher education, regardless of their background.
As a member of our Compliance and Student Protection directorate, you will take on a variety of projects relating to issues that impact on the student experience. Gathering information and analysing data, you will formulate evidence-based conclusions and identify the best way to resolve issues. You will also be involved in broader policy development.  Across all that you do, you will have the flexibility and creativity to come up with new ways to address each project.
This is a particularly exciting time to join us, as we are evolving our regulatory approach post-pandemic. Changes to the way we regulate the quality of higher education courses will allow us to intervene where these fall below our expectations and help us to ensure that all students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have meaningful choices of high quality courses and are effectively supported to succeed. As part of our  approach, we are also consulting on a new approach to regulating student outcomes.
To support the development of this work we would welcome applications from those who can bring experience of working in quality assessment (either in higher education providers or another educational context) to the roles.
Successful applicants may be assigned to work in any of the directorate’s key project areas, and will rotate across those areas in line with directorate policy. Assignment to work on the implementation of our quality approach may require some national travel to visit providers on site. It will also involve substantial direct engagement with providers undergoing quality investigation.
To make the most of this interesting opportunity, you will be both process-driven and highly analytical. With the capacity to present your findings in an articulate manner, you will have exceptional verbal and written communication skills, and the capacity to reach reliable judgements based on your analyses. On a practical level you will have experience in the shaping or implementation of processes. Crucially, you will also be a team-player.
As a senior risk manager, you will play a significant role in the allocation and management of the directorate’s activities, managing staff and teams to support delivery of the OfS’s functions and strategy. We are also recruiting for more junior roles, risk managers, and these are being advertised separately.
At the OfS, we enjoy a highly collaborative and dynamic working environment in which we are collectively making a difference for students. We want their experience to be everything that it should be, and you will be instrumental in helping us secure better outcomes for students. We want our workforce to reflect the diversity of the student body, so we champion a truly inclusive workplace in which everyone is encouraged to succeed regardless of their background or life choices.
We recruit based on fair and open competition and welcome applications from candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and socio-economic background. To attract the widest possible field of qualified applicants, flexible working for example job share and part time working apply to this role.
The OfS is currently trialling a hybrid model of working where up to 60% of your time may be spent working remotely.
If you are ambitious, astute and keen to drive the best possible results for England’s higher education students, we would be delighted to receive your application.
Closing date for applications: 29 August 2022.
Interviews: September 2022.
