You will be personable, a good communicator and team player; able to focus on the detail and support your team and academic staff to deliver their objectives. You will be expected to deliver Admissions talks to an audience of prospective applicants and their parents/carers at Open Days and similar events based at the AUB campus and online. At key times during the Admissions cycle there will be a requirement to work some Saturdays, for which time off in lieu will be given.

A degree level qualification or equivalent experience is required. It is essential that candidates have considerable experience demonstrating practical and theoretical knowledge of admissions, combined with strong knowledge of the UCAS application process.
