Continuing education is currently one of the most exciting, prominent and fastest changing fields in global higher education. The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) is an established leader in the field, tracing its roots back to 1873. ICE is based at the historic Madingley Hall campus, four miles west of Cambridge. 

As identified in the Government's Industrial Strategy, continuing education will be central to upskilling and re-skilling sectors and communities affected by technological change or Brexit. It also serves as an essential gateway to higher education for mature students. 

Whether mid-career health professionals learning about genomic medicine, mid-life adults seeking to change careers in emerging sectors such as coaching, creative writing or science communication, or retirees studying the history of art or philosophy, ICE provides world-class courses, drawing on the resources of one of the world's best universities, for adults from all backgrounds. 

ICE currently enrols over 4,000 students each year on short courses and undergraduate and postgraduate award-bearing courses. We have ambitious plans to double the number of enrolments over the next four years. With this in mind we are seeking to appoint two full-time Admissions Administrators to join our Admissions team. 

The ideal candidates will be well-organised with excellent communication skills. You will have the ability to work accurately and efficiently without close supervision, and have good interpersonal skills to be able to deal effectively with a wide range of people. You will ideally have experience of admissions in a Higher Education environment, and previous experience of working with CamSIS would be beneficial. 

The role-holders will assist in the administration of student admission and registration, for both ICE non-matriculated courses and for MSt courses across the University. They play an important role as the 'public face' of the Institute providing an efficient and informative admissions and registration service to prospective, new and returning students. 

Student applications are received by telephone, post and e-mail, and are processed using the ICE web-based registration systems and the University's student information system, CamSIS. Training will be provided where necessary.
