Placements Coordinator

About us:

The Professional Practice Office (PPO) sits within Student and Academic Services.  We are responsible for the allocation of placements for students wishing to pursue a career in the Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery, Social Work and Teaching.  This varied role is for 37 hours per week and crucial to student experience, which is key to the University’s 2030 strategy.  We work with a large spectrum of placement providers and other stakeholders.  We are a team of 14 people who work in a supportive manner.  We take pride in our work and enjoy the challenges of working in a fast moving, high pressure environment. 

About you:

You will be supporting Health placements and working closely with other team members linked to the Health programmes.  You will have a part in maintaining excellent relationships with our current stakeholders.  You will be required to attend a wide range of meetings and liaise with students, academic staff and placement providers by phone, email and presentations.   As such you will need to be confident in your communication skills. 

This role will also involve data spreadsheet work so you will need to have excellent IT skills and, in particular, experience of Excel to a high level.  You will be required to work under pressure and so will need resilience to work in such an environment.  This  is a  demanding role which needs to be done in a methodical and logical manner.
