Description :

The university is seeking to recruit two Admissions Officers to join the admissions department within Academic Services. These are busy and highly responsible roles working to provide an effective and efficient admissions service for the university.  You will have responsibility for the processing of undergraduate and postgraduate applications, making decisions consistently and fairly against pre-defined entry criteria. You will have extensive contact with applicants and staff at a variety of levels within the university, and external contact with other bodies such as UCAS, NARIC and the UKVI. 

You will also take responsibility for complex areas of work involved in supporting interviewing courses, admissions processes and policies and some data analysis or project work for the department.  You would lead on these areas, advising and supporting other members of the team.  As a more senior member of the team you would take decisions on more difficult matters and may be asked to attend meetings on behalf of your manager. One role will be responsible for the international admissions processes. 

In addition to these duties, it is expected that the role holder will assist with university applicant and open days.  As a multi-site university, you may also be required to undertake occasional work in locations other than your usual office.  Finally, willingness to work flexibly to meet the fluctuating demands of the admissions cycle is important.

You will need excellent organisational and communication skills, with the ability to work quickly and accurately.  You should possess excellent IT skills, including full working knowledge of MS Office. Experience of working with a university student record systems, such as SITS, or other large databases and software platforms would be beneficial, as would experience of working in the field of higher education. An understanding of university admissions processes would also be a distinct advantage.

We are looking for flexible, enthusiastic, proactive colleagues who can provide a high level of customer service to applicants and staff and who are able to work independently and as part of a team.  We would particularly welcome applications from BME candidates as these are traditionally under-represented groups in HE administration.

Job sharers welcome.

Interviews are scheduled to be held the week commencing 25 September 2017.

For an informal discussion to find out more about these roles please contact Tori Grant or Judith Clarke via v.n.grant@brighton.ac.ukor j.s.clarke@brighton.ac.uk
