The University of Bath, School of Management is ranked among the top UK business schools, with a renowned reputation for business education and international research.  We wish to appoint a Projects Officer to support our BSc Business degree programme’s Final Year Project scheme (0.6 fte) 

The post-holder will form part of the School of Management’s Placements, Projects & International Studies Team, taking responsibility for the BSc Business Final Year Projects (FYP) scheme.  The team work together under the guidance of a Head of Placements, Projects and International Studies, with daily line management from the Placements Manager.

The BSc Business degree incorporates two six-month periods of practical experience, thanks to which they enjoy an excellent reputation amongst graduate employers who are closely involved with the School in offering placements, projects, guest lectures, prizes and other forms of partnership. These organisational links are co-ordinated by a very well regarded Projects and Placements Office, which provides a high degree of support for both students and employing organisations.  

During the final year of this four-year degree course, all students have to carry out a team project on behalf of client organisations. The project work starts in late September with the research carried out by a team of five or six students over a seven-month period alongside the students’ other final-year studies. A final report is then submitted to the School (and the client company) and a presentation given by the student team to academic assessors. The scheme includes the opportunity to have an international research project carried out by students based in mainland Europe, America, Canada, Asia and Australia.

This is a busy and varied role involving daily communication with academic staff, students and current/potential project providers, so the post holder will need to have excellent organisational skills, demonstrate a good use of initiative, and have the ability to multi-task and prioritise.  

Initiative, flexibility, a conscientious approach, the ability to learn quickly and to form effective working relationships in the School are also key pre-requisites of the post.  Familiarity with the higher education sector or an empathy with the general character and mission of a University Management school is desirable.

This is a part-time (21.9 hours per week / 0.6FTE) position.

Informal enquiries about the post may be made to: Sanchia Jones, Placements Manager, School of Management, University of Bath, email: sj782@bath.ac.uk,  tel: 01225 383677.  However please ensure that you submit your application through the University of Bath website.
