This means that the support is harmonized with respect to processes and systems, close to the students and teachers.

Cooperation is part of the support organization’s DNA. Partitions between Departments and between Departments and the central service have increasingly been broken down. We regard educational support as a university-wide task, whereby services are offered by coordinated process chains, and all educational support staff are part of ESA and strongly involved in education, students and lecturers.

We find it very important that the team managers dares to work independently, whereby you, together with the ESA managers and the process chain responsible manager, will work on increasing our support in which high-quality service is offered at a cost-efficient effort.

You will meet regularly with ESA managers, exam committee chairs, students and lecturers to gather information about the quality of service. You ensure innovation in work processes, use your organizational sensitivity to break down resistance and drive improvement.

For the ESA department, we are looking for a team manager for 0,8-1.0 fte.

Other responsibilities you will have as a team manager:

  • Shaping the development mission with respect to:
    • Management and organization (team development plan)
    • Processes (operational excellence and customer intimacy)
    • Culture (open, learning culture);
  • Further develop Strategic Workforce Planning of the team;
  • Daily leadership/coordination of the team;
  • Maintain communication with ESA managers;
  • Maintain good alignment with process chain manager;
  • Drive quality, resource and customer focus of service and execution of work of the team;
  • Lead small projects focused on efficient, high quality and growth orientated and customer oriented processes.
