Job Description

General Higher Education Support Staff - £12ph plus holiday pay

Central London 

We are currently recruiting for bright, enthusiastic individuals, to support various Universities as they begin the new academic year.

Due to the tasks you will be undertaking, experience in a Higher Education Institute is a necessity.

At this time of year, it is all hands on deck as they welcome the new intake of students. This is a very busy time and with the added pressure of the current situation with Covid19, it is imperative they have willing, conscientious individuals on hand to support with various tasks.

The roles may include some or all of the following duties, depending on the needs of the department:

  • Assistance with the admissions process
  • Contact with new students
  • Arranging welcome week and inductions
  • General administration to support the department
  • Acting as a first point of contact for staff and students requesting information and guidance
  • Assistance in setting up the timetables
  • Setting up and maintaining student records
  • Dealing with queries raised on Moodle and SITS


The students are going to be entering a very new environment, under very strange circumstances, so it is imperative that the individuals brought in to assist are friendly and welcoming, patient and willing. You may find some days are very varied, whilst others may be very mundane. You must be willing to work under both circumstances and give your best at all times. If this sounds like you, I want to hear from you.



Due to time constraints and the number of applications we will only be able to respond personally to successful candidates. Hopefully you will be one of those. If not please do feel free to send your CV again for any other positions that are of interest.

Gray & Associates is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
