Closes: 16th August 2015
Ranked 15th in the Guardian University Guide 2016, and the Times and Sunday Times top Modern University in the UK; strong links to industry, quality teaching and an innovative and dynamic approach to learning are just a few highlights of Coventry University.
Over 24,000 students, including over 8000 international students from more than 130 countries study at our vibrant and diverse campuses in Coventry and London. September 2014 saw a record intake of international students, which is set to continue. To support this growth and future developments of international provision as a global enterprising university, we are looking to appoint several International Officers to work within our Sales Team.
International Officers support the recruitment of international students to the University. You will work as part of a regional team with extensive overseas travel (approx. 15 weeks a year). You will be responsible for undertaking recruitment missions, managing exhibitions, visiting schools, colleges and career conventions and other activities to drive growth in student recruitment.
You will be educated to degree level, with experience in sales and/or marketing you will thrive on developing business plans and hitting your targets. You must possess strong powers of self-motivation and initiative. You will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to work to tight deadlines. Ideally, you will have had experience operating successfully in international business development or student recruitment and will be both politically aware and culturally sensitive.
