As a truly global institution ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we are looking for an ambitious and proactive individual to actively manage, motivate and inspire the student recruitment team to create a sector-leading function within External Relations.

The remit and scope of the External Relations Department has significantly expanded in the last two years in terms of size and complexity of responsibilities. With 242 dedicated members of staff, we have responsibility for all student recruitment, communications and marketing activities across the entire University. This new role will lead a team comprising all student recruitment and admissions activities (UG, PG and INT), enquiries, events and widening participation and outreach.

Reporting to the Chief Marketing and Communications Officer (CMCO), the successful candidate will have vision and focus, be decisive and resourceful, with the inspiration and tenacity to succeed. We are looking for individuals with drive, energy and a strong track record of delivery and success, with extensive experience at a senior level and significant expertise in their field.

The University is looking for an impressive leader who is passionate and fulfilled by what they do, keen to learn, and can work collaboratively with the External Relations senior team to support the CMCO in creating a sector-leading Department that achieves targets and delivers to the highest standard.

Extensive experience of leading, managing and inspiring teams is a must. The successful candidate will be responsible for the delivery of a first-class student recruitment, admissions and widening participation strategy and service. Working with colleagues across the University you will lead student number planning and the development of effective strategies to achieve student recruitment targets. This is an exciting role that for the first time brings together all elements of student recruitment at the University.
