Job Description

A Caseworker is sought to work within the University of Nottingham’s Legal Services Department, providing administrative support and assisting with the response to a range of student casework, including complaints made to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA).


Working within a small but busy team, the successful candidate will carry out a range of tasks, including: logging new cases, obtaining and collating information and documentation from relevant internal stakeholders, managing the administration of casework files, drafting case chronologies and responses to OIA complaints and updating relevant databases.

The successful candidate will be required to work on multiple cases at once and will therefore be required to demonstrate excellent administrative, organisational and time-management skills, attention to detail and an ability to work independently, seeking advice from colleagues when appropriate. The successful candidate will have excellent IT skills and be familiar with using Microsoft Office.

Due to the nature of the casework, the successful candidate will have a law degree or equivalent. Experience of working in a legal support role or in a relevant role within the Higher Education sector is highly desirable.

The post is offered on a fixed term contract for 12 months. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours per week); however applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part time and the number of preferred hours. Job share arrangements may also be considered.
