York St John University is an ambitious, modern University located in the heart of beautiful, safe and historic York, with an exciting new campus at the Barbican in London. Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary programmes have helped make us one of the fastest growing Universities in the U.K. over recent years. We are now building on that achievement, with a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education.

The post forms part of the International Student Recruitment Team within York St John International. Working with the Deputy Director of Student Recruitment and the Pro Vice-Chancellor International Development, the post-holder will be responsible for achieving international student recruitment targets by deploying a devolved budget, by identifying market opportunities and developing recruitment strategies designed to grow the University’s business in the designated market. The incumbent will also work closely with the Heads of School to develop and maintain international partnerships.

The role will be UK/York based with frequent travel to the designated regions of up to 16 weeks per year.
