An introductory paragraph summarising your experience can be useful. Remember to try and provide some evidence for your administrative skills eg by identifying any changes made to procedures improving efficiency, methods of collecting student feedback, etc.

Experiences which you can draw on to provide evidence might include:

  • Responsibilities within the department for specific lecture courses, degree schemes, groups of students
  • Involvement in admissions (eg university open days), producing university prospectuses, etc.
  • Your role in examining, tutorial work, exam invigilation, etc.
  • Organisation or involvement in the planning of conferences/research seminars
  • Service on University committees (if you were an undergraduate or postgraduate Student Representative or sat on any staff-student committees it's worth mentioning these here)
  • Service on external bodies, including learned or professional societies
  • Administrative skills gained via work experience, voluntary work, involvement in Student Associations, etc.
