Student Services

Location: Sutton (Greater London)
Key Information

Hours per week: 35 hours per week (full time)
Job Details:
Summary of Role
We are seeking an exceptional candidate for this highly-visible role.
Each year, The Institute of Cancer Research offers up to 40 fully-funded PhD studentships—funded by the ICR and by its research partners. We only accept the very best students—those with an outstanding track record in science and the aptitude to be future leaders in their field. The post holder will manage the entire student recruitment process up until the point of degree registration.
The post-holder will also oversee the organisation of our institute internal scientific conference. Administrative and event support is available from the Registry Administrator (Student Recruitment and Conference), whom the post-holder will manage.
Previous post-holders have found this role to be highly satisfying, with end-to-end oversight of both student recruitment and our internal scientific the conference. The post-holder will work closely with the Head of Education Projects on the continuous improvement of these complex processes (in terms of technology, branding, and communication)—with both expected to continue having a hybrid remote/on-site format, post-Covid. Out-of-hours working will occasionally be required around our main winter recruitment event and summer conference.
The role might particularly suit someone with scientific knowledge, and/or who is familiar with university administration—but neither of these are prerequisites. Critical are the ability to plan complex processes, with strong attention to detail, and clear communication. A keen interest in fair and equitable recruitment is similarly essential.
At the time of writing, professional services staff at the ICR are engaged in a hybrid working trial, with approximately two days a week on site in Sutton and three working from home.
Key Requirements
The successful candidate must have an undergraduate degree (preferably in a scientific discipline), excellent communication and time management skills, and experience of managing complex deadline-driven projects. Please see the candidate pack for a full person specification.

Team: Education Projects and QualityDirectorate: Academic Services

This includes the recruitment of outstanding research degree students, the delivery of the ICR Conference, and transformational technology projects. The team also leads on quality assurance of education activity, and the governance of academic committees and processes.
The role of the broader Academic Services directorate is to create an efficient and effective environment for the ICR’s scientific community to flourish. Our services underpin both research and education at the ICR
