Job description

International Officer

Grade 6 (£30,487 - £36,024)

Full time, Permanent

Abertay is a modern university with a global outlook, rooted in its local and national communities. We have made our mark with high quality, well-directed teaching and research, and a stimulating and enriching experience for our students, recognised by our status as Sunday Times UK University of the Year 2021 for teaching quality and Scottish University of the Year for social inclusion.

The External and Corporate Relations team leads the University in both our external engagement agenda and internal corporate relationships and communications. The team is focussed on enhancing both the University's reputation and revenue, and encompasses five focussed functions: Marketing and Communications, International Recruitment and Partnerships, UK Recruitment; Admissions; and Events.

The University now seeks to appoint an International Officer to contribute to the successful delivery of key recruitment and conversion activities, with the aim of attracting international applications and enrolments for all University programmes. Abertay seeks to increase and diversify its international student cohort and this role supports the attraction and conversion of prospective international students from a range of potential growth markets, with particular focus on direct recruitment markets and the context set by UK government's graduate route.

Reporting to the Head of International Recruitment, the International Officer plays a key role in developing and implementing recruitment strategies to grow student enrolments from specified markets. International recruitment staff work closely with colleagues in other areas of the directorate, in particular with colleagues in admissions, marketing, communications, and domestic recruitment functions, as well as other University stakeholders within academic schools and university services. Priority relationships will however be external, in managing relationships with key stakeholders overseas.

The role requires a decisive and proactive individual, promoting the world class student experience on offer to students in Scotland at Abertay. You will be an integral member of a team that is empowered to think creatively to communicate the University's value proposition in overseas markets. You'll enjoy a varied and competing workload, a flexible working environment, and a team committed to investing in you, your ambitions, and career development.

Enquiries ahead of application are welcome, and should be made to Doug Watters, Head of International Recruitment, [email protected].
