The University of Stirling is seeking an outstanding candidate to provide strategic leadership for all areas of undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment and admissions, in this newly created Director of Student Recruitment and Admissions role.
This is an exciting time to join the University as we’ve just begun the process of developing a new Strategic Plan. Building on the success of the current plan, during which there has been significant investment in the Recruitment and Admissions teams – reflecting sustained growth in student applications and outstanding success in unregulated student recruitment numbers— the new Director will play an integral role in helping to shape and deliver the student recruitment and admissions strategy aligned with the objectives of the new plan.
For this role, you’ll need to be an experienced, strategic, recruitment and admissions expert, well-networked within the sector and with demonstrable success in UK, European and International student recruitment. The post-holder will be commercially astute, innovative, highly motivated and goal orientated, with excellent leadership and communication skills, and a track record of leading and motivating high performing teams.

Stirling is a place where everyone is treated with respect and where ability – not background – is valued.
