Job description

International Operations 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 Operations Officer to support the coordination and management of key stakeholder relationships and activities, with the aim of attracting international applications and enrolments for all University programmes. The role leads and coordinates the international operations infrastructure, to support campus-based recruitment and conversion activities. Report management is a key facet of the role – providing timely reporting relating to enrolment goals and budgets.

Reporting to the Head of International Recruitment, the International Operations Officer plays a key role in leading the operations of the International Recruitment Team from campus. As a non-travelling position, the International Operations Officer will 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. The role also oversees the delivery of the study abroad and student exchange programme, managing the Student Exchange Officer.

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 students and partners. 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].
