Director of Admissions (full or part time)

c£43,000 per annum

St Edmund’s College admits students with the strongest intellectual potential, through a fair admissions process, irrespective of school, family or financial background, race, religion or disability. There are distinct cohorts of students (including postgraduates and undergraduates) across the college, each with a separate admissions process. The Director of Admissions will manage these admissions processes and liaise with appropriate committees and funding bodies. The Director of Admissions will encourage applications from under-represented groups in close co-operation with the Admissions Secretary and Widening Participation Officer.  Further particulars of the post are in the job description attached.  

The successful candidate will be appointed to the Fellowship, will hold a PhD degree and have prior experience in a higher education admissions-related role. The role has no teaching requirements, although provision could be made, subject to time constraints and the College’s current teaching needs.

The Director of Admissions will manage all College admissions-related activity through liaison with the Senior Tutor, Graduate Tutors, Directors of Studies and other College Fellows, as well as the Head of Tutorial and Admissions Secretary.  This is a full-time role, with particularly intense commitment required for a number of weeks at key stages in the annual admission cycle, offset by quieter periods at other times of the academic year. Consideration will be given to applicants who wish to hold the role as a part-time role in conjunction with other teaching or research commitments.

Please apply using the attached form and enclosing a letter explaining why you feel you meet the requirements of the post. 

Closing date for completed applications: noon on Thursday 18 July 2019 

First interviews will be held on Thursday 25 July (pm) and second interviews for shortlisted candidates will be held on Friday 2 August 2019 (am).
