SOAS University of London is the leading Higher Education institution in Europe specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East.  SOAS University of London is positioned to play a leading role in reimagining higher education globally, with a new strategic plan in place as the basis for the renewal and revitalisation of the School which commits SOAS to both student responsiveness and research intensity. SOAS is moving towards a new model of international partnerships which is responsive to the transnational character of our global challenges.

About the Department:

SOAS Careers provides careers education to current SOAS students and graduates, as well as recruitment solutions for employers. SOAS Careers provides a ‘core’ service accessible to all students and graduates as well as varying degrees of more ‘local’ provision within individual departments or particular groups of students. An essential aspect of our core service is the provision of advice and training for our student population on navigating employer recruitment and selection processes, from composing effective written applications to high level performance in interviews and at assessment centre, using Careers guidance methodologies. The post holder will also be expected to collaborate with, and provide advice to, members of the wider Careers team within the core service as well as staff working at the local level within the eleven SOAS Departments.

About the Role

Your responsibilities will largely fall into these practice areas:

  • Triage of initial student needs as part of the Front Desk team
  • Provision of one-to-one advice to students and graduates on how they could generate and evaluate potential career options.
  • Provision of advice about how students and graduates could acquire skills and experience that would make them suitable for their desired career options.
  • Advice to students and graduates about how to identify suitable vacancies.
  • Provide feedback to students and graduates on their applications and performance in mock interviews.
  • Research into current trends in recruitment practice across a range of industry sectors which may involve collaboration with other careers staff as well as direct outreach to employers in the UK and globally; and the occasional delivery of interactive group work on various aspects of recruitment and selection.
