LPO manages partnership programmes and relationships with external partners.   The Officer will be responsible for centralised key academic administration processes relating to programmes.

The flexibility of the 100% Online programmes provision means that students have the opportunity to enrol at a number of points throughout the year.  The Officer will therefore need to be extremely well organised, with excellent attention to detail, in order to follow the progression of each student individually.

As well as being highly organised the postholder will need to be proactive, able to work with a high degree of accuracy and maintain confidentiality.  They will need to have a positive attitude and build and maintain effective professional relationships with a wide range of people internal and external to the University, however this is not a student facing role.
