Online Admissions Officer

Coventry University - Coventry University Online

Coventry University has seen huge global successes in recent years: Times Higher Education University of the Year 2015, The Good University Guides’ Modern University of the Year 2016, and now the 12th best University in The Guardian University Guide 2018. We have also achieved the top accolade in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), published on the 22nd June by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE)

It doesn’t stop here. Coventry University is taking its next big step, this time into the digital world of online distance learning. Working with UK-based FutureLearn, which has over six million learners worldwide on its collaborative learning platform, the University is planning to launch its first Master’s programmes in early 2018. The roll out of 50 online degrees over the next five years will deliver world-leading programmes, accessible to thousands of new distance learners across the globe. 

The creation of supporting infrastructure within a new, dynamic and innovative business will be pivotal in helping the University Group develop and deliver courses online through a devoted ‘Studio’, as well as providing dedicated support in key areas such as Marketing, Admissions and Student Care. This is both a sector and UK first; a thrilling time to join a start-up unlike any other; an opportunity to shape the future of Higher Education. 

Based in Coventry, you will work within a team of admissions professionals, responsible for the full assessment of applications for Coventry University Online degree programmes. You will work to established processes and targets, demonstrating a best practice approach in conversion and admissions. Educated to degree level or equivalent, the successful applicant will have demonstrable experience in a Higher Education admissions environment and be able to demonstrate an ability to meet deadlines, follow policy and procedures, and take responsibility for all aspects of their work. 

You will possess a thorough understanding of the current market for online provision of educational qualifications. You will be skilled at working with a wide range of applicants and their influencers, and understand the importance of maintaining strong links with colleagues across the Coventry University Group.
