UUK/GuildHE Code Support Officer (0.7 FTE)

We are looking for a UUK/GuildHE Code Support Officer to provide administrative support to Code operations and on occasion, support the wider activities of CUBO.

The UUK/GuildHE Accommodation Code of Practice (The Code) is legislated by Parliament to assure safe, quality student accommodation. The Code currently has 143 member organisations and oversees the compliance of approx. 260,000 bed spaces.

Where a student lives is a key part of their experience, especially in their first year, and so when they move to University, The Code is there to protect their rights and assure a safe, good quality place to live. Members signed up to the Code have their accommodation independently audited every 3 years to ensure compliance with the standards required for that membership to continue. It is our role to ensure that this is delivered efficiently, accurately and to the requirements laid out by the legislation it represents.

You will be able to demonstrate a track record of excellent organisational skills and the ability to work equally well both independently and as part of a team. It’s a fast paced and varied role and you’ll need the skills to be able to successfully balance the aligned, but often competing priorities of the work.

Our home-based team are located in different parts of the UK and operate virtually through regular calls, virtual meetings and together at the physical meetings and conferences we run annually. This role will be home-based and include a small amount of pre-planned travel for meeting and conference support, with occasional overnight stays. 

The post-holder reports to the CUBO Executive Director and this role has no line management responsibilities.

This role is for 25 hours a week (48 weeks/year) and then during our busiest periods it increases to full time, 37 hours a week, (4 weeks/year). Across the whole year, this equates to 0.7 FTE. 

This is a great opportunity to work from home, alongside and supported by a fabulous, inclusive team and to be part of making a difference to the thousands of students who choose to make their homes in our members’ accommodation while they are at University – we look forward to hearing from you!
