Coventry University is recognised as one of the leading UK study destinations for international students. We've put ourselves on the global map by recruiting students from 87% of the world in just 10 years through our International Office. Continuing success means that we must expand our Conversion Team to meet current demand and hit ambitious recruitment targets.
We need an iconic Head of International Conversion who will:-
- Successfully deliver and improve a complex and evolving conversion strategy covering several simultaneous intakes, multiple brand propositions and for campuses located across the UK.
- Give effective management and inspirational leadership to the entire Conversion Team and direct reports based in the UK and in regional hubs throughout the world.
- Possess a confidence and credibility to influence and persuade internal stakeholders, external customers and colleagues during the hard times as well as the good ones.
The International Office takes responsibility for recruiting students to study for a Coventry University degree. We take pride in understanding the needs of different students from different cultures, both in the EU and outside the EU. We encourage undergraduate and postgraduate students to apply directly to us, or through our global network of sales agents.
We show a young and vibrant worldwide audience how a degree from Coventry will change their lives. Because of this, we're recognised as 2nd in the UK for Teaching Excellence. And 97% of our students are employed or in further study six months after they graduate.
As results-driven organisation marketing courses to global customers, we adopt working patterns that help us 'make the sale'. So weekend work on a rota is expected, as is some flexibility around start and finish times to maximise sales opportunities from different time zones around the world.
