£40,014 - £48,478 |  Fixed-term post for 12 months  | 35 hours per week | London WC1H

We are looking for an experienced Administration Manager to manage the ACU’s provision of administrative support services to three external organisations, ensuring the ACU delivers high quality professional administrative services and maintaining a good working relationship between the ACU and these clients.

The largest of these organisations is SEDA (the Staff and Educational Development Association), a membership association for those working to improve teaching and learning in higher education. In addition, there is ICED (the International Consortium for Educational Development) and HEDG (the Heads of Educational Development Group), also membership associations concerned with teaching and learning in HE.

The post holder will also be responsible for managing the ACU’s Academic Promotions Assessments scheme.

The ACU is an international organisation dedicated to building a better world through higher education.

We believe that international collaboration is central to this ambition. By bringing universities together from around the world – and crucially the people who study and work within them - we help to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives.

We champion higher education as a cornerstone of stronger societies, supporting our members, partners, and stakeholders as they adapt to a changing world.

Our benefits include 31 days holiday per year (including 4 Christmas closure days) plus bank holidays, competitive pension scheme (10% employer contribution plus 5% employee contribution), season ticket loan and excellent support for learning and development through a range of educational and networking activities.

At the ACU, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone regardless of gender, race, religion, marital status, disability, age, and sexual orientation.

As Administration Manager you will be employed by ACU Trading Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary.
