Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a post of International Recruitment Officer (0.6 FTE) at the School of Law, UCC. The School of Law is a modern academic law school with committed, research active staff and a range of Law programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The School has 33 academic staff, 9 professional support staff and approximately 850 student FTEs. The School delivers 7 undergraduate BCL programmes (including an evening BCL), a suite of 8 postgraduate LLM programmes, an LLB and PhD programme. Ranked No 59 in the top 100 law schools globally and No 1 in Ireland (Source: QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2023), the School is based in Áras na Laoi with modern teaching facilities - including a Moot Court room, meeting rooms, dedicated research student work spaces and social space. Since March 2021, the School of Law is a proud holder of an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in recognition of its commitment to advancing gender equality.

The School has identified international student recruitment at both undergraduate and postgraduate level as a key objective of its Business Plan 2021-2027. The role is a specialised and distinct role within the School which will involve both online and in-person engagement with universities and schools across the globe; attendance at recruitment fairs which target legal education; and the development of partnerships which will promote student recruitment and exchange. Furthermore, it will require working with UCC's International and Admissions Offices, UCC's overseas offices and agents and ensuring the conversion of international applicants on UCC Apply to registered students. Flexibility in the role is anticipated, for example, enabling the successful candidate to organise their work over 12 days per month (rather than 3 days per week) to ensure they can travel overseas to market, to visit partners and agents, and attend recruitment fairs working with UCC offices overseas and academic staff as appropriate. Reporting to the Dean and Vice- Dean (Internationalisation), the International Recruitment Officer will promote the profile and brand image of the School of Law, building on the School's strategic achievements across teaching, research and community/society impact.

Please note that Garda vetting and/or an international police clearance check may form part of the selection process.
