The Advice and Recruitment Officers will be part of a strong professional recruitment team that manages and implements the College’s student recruitment strategy.
The Advice and Recruitment Officers will work across all aspects of the learner journey, working closely with the Advice & Recruitment, Marketing and Careers teams. The roles will involve working closely with curriculum and support teams and liaising with schools and parents and carers. The ability to work collaboratively is key. The post holders will support the College in delivering our student recruitment targets.
The post holders will play a key role in the planning, coordinating and implementing the college’s student recruitment and enrolment processes. They will be responsible for ensuring that prospective and continuing students receive high-quality information, advice and guidance (IAG) to help them make informed decisions about their post-16 education.
They will also be responsible for providing information, advice and guidance to parents and carers. Some of the duties are carried out in the early evenings, so flexibility is required.
The successful candidates will work well with 16-19 year-olds and contribute to our student-centred environment. They will have a genuine interest in young people and how they become resilient adults, able to make informed choices about their next steps.
If you are passionate about supporting learners to achieve their full potential, then we would love to hear from you.
