Job overview 

 

We are a small school with a big mission; the LSA is seeking a collaborative, collegiate and, above all, meticulous registrar to take on our registry services.

You will be responsible for administrative oversight of all registry matters for the School, current and developing programmes, ensuring that the LSA is working within its agreed regulatory frameworks and contractual agreement with its academic partner, the University of Liverpool.

 

The LSA Registrar is central to ensuring the School’s operations, administrative databases and registry systems are robust and accurate, to guarantee the School has excellent standards of governance, with transparent and regular information flows. You will ensure students and faculty, as well as our wider Practice Network, are well informed and aware of the academic and support mechanisms available to them.
