The Organisation

The Open University Students Association is the largest Students Association in the UK serving the interests of over 170,000 part-time students spread across the UK, Europe and beyond. Our job is to represent the interests of this vast and extremely diverse body of students. Whilst we operate within a world-class University, we are not governed by the OU. The OU Students Association is an independent organisation, a registered charity in its own right, run by elected student leaders. Our small team of dedicated, professional staff provide the vital support needed to deliver excellent services across the breadth of our student population.

The Job

The Operations Assistant will play a crucial role within the busy hub team that forms the backbone of support for the unique range of activities carried out by our organisation. This will involve a variety of tasks on a daily basis including delivering high quality customer service by telephone and email and providing effective administration support across a diverse array of work.

The Person

We’re looking for a motivated, hard-working and highly efficient administrator with meticulous attention to detail. You should relish the challenge of working in a small but busy team and must be able to demonstrate previous experience of delivering quality work to tight deadlines in a customer service environment. If you’re looking for a challenging and varied role with lots to get your teeth into, then this is the role for you.
