As a Leading International Technological University, the University of Strathclyde has significant international reach and ambition. Inspired by our founding mission as ‘the place of useful learning’, the University of Strathclyde makes a positive difference to the lives of our students, to society and to the world. Our reputation and influence is global, yet we are an institution firmly grounded in the heart of Glasgow, contributing to the social, cultural and economic life of Scotland through the presence of a vibrant, international student community.

The University’s Strategic Plan 2015 – 2020 sets out targets for growth of our non-EU student population. Vision 2025 increases the emphasis on international recruitment further, with an additional £30m per annum expected in fee income by 2025. Reporting directly to the Deputy Head of RIO, the postholder will be responsible for increasing the recruitment of study abroad students (both semester and year-long) from a diverse range of markets. This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual, who is comfortable working both independently and as part of a larger team.

This post will offer a confident self-starter the opportunity to make a strong contribution to the University’s international student recruitment ambitions. We require a forward-thinker who will join a pro-active team working within the Recruitment & International Office (RIO). This team, of over 40 staff, is responsible for attracting the very best students from across the world onto the university’s undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

This post sits within the International Recruitment Team which is responsible for meeting challenging international student targets and the postholder will be expected to:

  • Provide effective and professional representation of the University of Strathclyde in marketing and recruitment study abroad programmes.
  • Take responsibility for market planning and relationship management within assigned channels and networks related to study abroad
  • Assist the Deputy Head of RIO in contributing to, forecasting and meeting overall institutional targets, and inputting to the production of market plans, regional briefings and other market / country specific briefing papers.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on 5 November 2018.
