The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Based in central London adjacent to Regent’s Park, we have been training musicians to the highest professional standards since our foundation in 1822.  Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focussed on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical, jazz and musical theatre.

We are seeking a highly efficient administrator to join the team in the Academic Secretariat, which is at the heart of the Academy’s academic administration. You will provide administrative support to the Academic Secretary and service all of the Academy’s academic committees, including Examination Boards during term time.  This will involve the preparation and circulation of agendas and papers for consideration, producing and circulating concise and accurate minutes, and following up on actions in a timely manner.  Outside of term time you will also have responsibility for a number of key projects relating to academic quality assurance such as being the main point of contact for the Academy’s External Examiners, updating the Student Charter, assisting the team with the gathering of student feedback and creating digests of the reports of Specialist External Assessors.

This role will suit a highly organised individual looking to expand their knowledge and skills in Higher Education. You will have previous relevant administrative experience, including co-ordinating and servicing meetings, and be able to prioritise and juggle a number of tasks and deadlines. You should have a good standard of general education and excellent team-working and communication skills.  Knowledge and experience of working in a Higher Education environment would be advantageous, as would be an interest in music or performing arts.

Monday and Tuesday are essential working days during term time, as these are when the academic committees take place. Some flexibility in terms of working days will also be required during certain times of the academic year, to accommodate the servicing of the Examination Boards.

 Completed applications must be received by 10am 1 December 2014. Interviews are expected to be held during week commencing 8 December 2014.
