Job description

External Engagement Communications & Global (EEG)


About the role

We are seeking to appoint a highly organised, experienced administrator to join a very busy and dynamic Admissions Office, delivering a central service to support the University's Faculties in meeting their targets, to recruit the best qualified students to the University.

The above post is a full time permanent position.

About you

To be successful in this role, you will need good organisational and administrative skills. You will need to be able to work flexibly under pressure and to tight deadlines, as well as have previous experience of delivering excellent customer services. Ideally we would prefer someone who has experience of using a large database system, especially for data entry, and the ability to follow complex sets of procedures. In addition you will need to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills to communicate effectively with colleagues and applicants. An understanding of admissions processes, with some knowledge of either UK or international qualifications would be an advantage. However, full training will be provided to suitable applicants who do not have a background in Admissions.

The Admissions office is currently operating a hybrid approach to work with a combination of office and home based working; the majority of which is currently based at home but with the expectation that you can regularly work in the office as required.

Please ensure you read the Job Description and Person Specification for full details of this role.

The University of Exeter

We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and in the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024 and QS World University Ranking 2024). We combine world-class teaching with world-class research, achieving a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework Award 2023, underpinned by Gold ratings for Student Experience and Student Outcomes.

Our world-leading research impact has grown more than any other Russell Group university in recent years, and we are home to some of the world's most influential researchers, seeking to answer some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today. More than 99 percent of our research is of international quality and 47 percent is world-leading (2021 Research Excellence Framework).

We encourage proactive engagement with industry, business and community partners to enhance the impact of research and education and improve the employability of our students.

We are located in a beautiful part of the country and Exeter (a fast growing tech hub) is one of only a few UK cities to have been designated as a UNESCO Creative City
