Communications and External Relations

We bring together the main areas involved in leading the University’s strategic positioning and profile.

Engaging with students, staff and stakeholders we promote the University’s excellence in research and education, and ensure its profile is communicated in a consistent way. We take an innovative and creative approach to our work and are at the forefront of new and best practice in communications, marketing, and stakeholder and customer service.

The role and duties

We are looking for a proactive and enthusiastic individual to further develop our South American student recruitment activity. You will be part of a creative and dynamic Marketing and Student Recruitment team, working closely with colleagues in admissions, and with the University’s regional international offices to ensure that the University has a coordinated and effective approach to student recruitment.

This is your opportunity to make a real contribution to the continued growth and development of the University as the University increases its emphasis on this geographical area of recruitment. As a key member of the Marketing and Student Recruitment Team, you will ensure that the University’s student recruitment strategies are delivered effectively and will contribute towards increasing the number and quality of enquiries, applications and admissions to the University.

Qualifications and skills required

You should have a degree or equivalent level qualification, and relevant student recruitment experience within the higher education sector is desirable. You should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as sound administrative skills and experience of dealing with multiple priorities and tight deadlines. You will be required to undertake frequent periods of evening and weekend work overseas (and occasionally within the UK).

At the University of Essex internationalism is central to who we are and what we do. We are committed to being a cosmopolitan, internationally-oriented university that is welcoming to staff and students from all countries and a university where you can find the world in one place.
