ICE aims to ensure that the expertise and resources of the University of Cambridge are made available to all students, irrespective of their previous educational achievements.

We wish to appoint an Academic Centre Coordinator to work within one of ICE’s Academic Centres, supporting immediate colleagues, Academic Directors, Panel Tutors, students and applicants and managing the administration and development of portfolio of that Centre. The Academic Centre Coordinator focus is effective co-ordination of the activity of the Centre, in order to ensure optimum conditions for promotion, delivery and enrolment of that Centre’s award and non-award-bearing provision.
