What else are we looking for in our new Head of Admissions?

Previous experience of leading and managing a remote team is important to us, particularly now our teams are working more flexibly.  Previous demonstrated “Admissions” experience within a UK higher education setting is critical for success in this role.  For us that means you may have held a senior management or Officer role and are now looking to move into a commercial organisation which offers the agility, wider exposure across the education sector or a step up in your career.  You will be able to balance strategic thinking with operational delivery, this role will need you to demonstrate agility and solve problems at pace.  You will be confident and have a professional style.  Superb verbal and written communication skills are a must.
