The University’s central Admissions Office is looking for a helpful, friendly and efficient person to join our Undergraduate Admissions team, supporting the key process of dealing with the full-time undergraduate applications received via UCAS.
The post holder will:
- be responsible for undergraduate applications for a group of subjects;
- work closely with the academic admissions tutors to reach decisions;
- set conditions, issue offer letters and stay in touch with the applicant throughout the admissions cycle;
- deal with telephone and email enquiries;
- support the Confirmation and Clearing process in the summer; and
- ensure an excellent student experience (from application to arrival)
This office-based, process-driven role requires someone with very good experience of administrative work, ideally handling large volumes of enquiries and with evidence of close attention to detail. You should have a strong record of excellent ‘customer service’ and enjoy working with people from across the globe.
Ideally you will have experience of higher education and some existing knowledge of UCAS, the undergraduate admissions process and UK school leaving qualifications. It would also be an advantage to have experience of assessing international qualifications and an understanding of fee classification regulations.
Please note that the pattern of work in Undergraduate Admissions means there is a holiday embargo for staff during August and some restrictions on leave in September.
It is normal to appoint at the first point of the salary scale.
