Glasgow Caledonian University - the University for the Common Good - is a vibrant, values-led, multi-cultural University with a global outlook, dedicated to delivering social innovation. Our organisational strategy is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and our globally recognised researchers advise governments, industry and international bodies. We’re ranked fifth in the world and first in the UK for promoting gender equality, 69th globally for social impact, and the top modern university in Scotland for research power. In 2020-21, we contributed £1.7 billion and more than 14,000 jobs across the globe.

GCU is committed to widening participation, delivering positive outcomes for our students, and we’re Scotland’s leading provider of Graduate Apprenticeships. With campuses in Glasgow, London and New York, we have transnational partnerships around the world, supporting more than 22,000 students. Guided by our inspirational Chancellor, Dr Annie Lennox OBE, and guided by our values – integrity, responsibility, creativity and confidence - we transform the lives of the people and communities we serve.

The Department of Governance is seeking to appoint an individual with appropriate skills and experience to the post of Complaints and Governance Administrator.

The successful candidate will provide administrative support to all areas of the Department’s work including assisting with Court and Senate and their Standing Committees, providing support to the University’s Complaints Handling Procedure, student conduct procedures and mediation service, as well as undertaking general departmental administrative duties.  The post holder will be expected to work closely with all members of the Department, Court members, and colleagues across the University.

Previous administration experience is essential, preferable within a university or similar environment.  Experience of dealing with complaints would be especially welcomed.  Demonstrable evidence of administrative and organisational skills, coupled with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office packages is essential, as is the ability to work to deadlines under own initiative within an overall team.

Further details on this post are available by contacting Debbie Donnet, Head of Complaints and Governance on before 15th July or Paul Brown, Director of Governance and Legal Services on from 19th July.
