We have a great opportunity for an individual with previous admissions experience gained within Education, to fulfil the role as Senior Admissions Officer within a very highly regarded organisation. We are looking for a proactive and capable candidate who exudes personal warmth as well as having some supervisory experience. It is a role that offers the chance to work in a friendly and efficient environment with great benefits including a generous non-contributory pension scheme. You will act as a key member of a small Admissions team, supervising a junior team member and will be responsible for attracting students to the school. Responsibilities would include preparation of open days and events, monitoring and reporting on competitors work, running reports on admissions statistics and maintaining the database by providing statistical information. The role will also entail handling a wide range of external telephone and face to face enquiries and issues, liaising regularly with other local, national and international schools, administering admission procedures and testing, as well as assisting with departmental budgets. The right candidate will need to have previous admissions experience within education, with evident experience of some team leadership or supervision duties. You will need to have a good ability with Microsoft Word and Excel for administration purposes. The highest standard of professionalism and interpersonal skills are required to liaise regularly with parents and external agencies and therefore the candidate will present themselves with confidence and clarity. Please Note: Due to the unprecedented volume of response we are currently receiving, regrettably we are no longer able to respond to every application individually. If you have not heard back from us within 5 days, please assume your application for this role has been unsuccessful. We do read each CV carefully and if the situation changes or another potentially suitable role becomes active, we will be back in contact.
