Job description

Job summary

We are looking for an organised and motivated team member to champion postgraduate student experience and aid the delivery of a digital health learning programme for clinical and non-clinical health and care professionals.

You will join a committed team of academics, educators, and healthcare experts who look to define the digital health skill set that enables professionals from across the health and social care system to harness data and deliver better care through innovation.

A blended learning programme, the postgraduate diploma delivers knowledge applicable to health and care settings. Its curriculum is informed by an outstanding network of national and international stakeholders from public sector and private industry; ensuring graduates emerge with a well-rounded appreciation of digital capabilities of their role within health and care settings.

Your role will focus on providing academic and pastoral support to our students. You will work with Faculty and professional staff, and will be a point of contact to students on the programme. We therefore seek someone who is empathetic, works well with a range of stakeholders, and is committed to deliver thoughtful and consistent student experience.

Duties and responsibilities

Your responsibilities focus on three areas. In the context of learning, teaching and assessment, you will work with a Faculty team to help develop teaching and learning assets and schedules, and to continually improve the curriculum. In the area of programme experience, you will champion student service by attending to pastoral support, and signposting resources from within the programme, and across the College.

Finally, administrative duties will complement your portfolio: here you will support programme-related activities by scheduling events, webinars, and help with extracurricular activities.

Essential requirements

To be successful in the post, you will hold a relevant degree, and are a capable and organised team member, confident in collaborating with others. You will have experience in educational setting. You have an appreciation of teaching and learning methodologies, and you deploy these to enable positive academic outcomes.

Further information

This is a full-time, fixed-term post until 31 August 2022. The post is based at St. Mary’s Hospital Campus, Paddington – and the appointment will commence remotely, until further notice.

All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

Interviews will be held remotely via MS Teams on 29th and 30th May.

Please get in touch if we could accommodate alternative remote means of interviewing. The successful applicant will be commencing work remotely.
