Job description 

This vacancy is open to University of Sussex graduates 2019 or 2020 (UG and PGT) in any discipline.

The Governance Office is looking to recruit two graduate interns to join us in the Division of General Counsel, Governance and Compliance (GCGC). The Governance Office supports the University’s Executive Group (UEG) and its governing body, Council, to drive the strategic development of the institution. These roles give the opportunity to work with a wide range of staff across the University.

The role holders will:

  • Provide high quality organisational and administrative support to the General Counsel and her team;
  • Provide day to day secretarial and administrative support for the team including diary management, file creation, correspondence, maintenance of filing systems and data bases and delegated procurement;
  • Support the Deputy Heads of Governance Services in the smooth running of the UEG and Council and its sub-committees.

The successful candidates will have a flexible and positive approach with strong planning and organising skills. They will have excellent written and oral communication skills and an ability to use a range of IT packages. The nature of the Governance Office’s work means that attention to detail, maintaining confidentiality and establishing highly effective working relationships are key.

Applicants should be a graduate from any undergraduate or taught postgraduate course at the University of Sussex.

These vacancies are part of the Sussex Graduate Programme, which offers work on campus with a professional services department. Develop your employability skills through genuine and meaningful work experience.

Please contact Georgina Seligmann, Deputy Head of Governance, for informal enquiries: g.seligmann@sussex.ac.uk

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

Please note that the University of Sussex is unable to provide visa sponsorship for this position, and thus any applicant should ensure that they have the legal right to work in the UK for the period of the post. The University of Sussex requires all successful applicants to provide proof of permission to work in the UK before they commence work. Should you therefore require further information, please visit the Home Office website.
