Job description

Coventry University is now 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. You need to be part of this with us.

We need a Deputy Director Operations (International Development) who will:

  • Challenge fellow professionals to deliver an outstanding customer experience for international students before, during and after enrolment.
  • Direct professional teams managing student admissions, international student support and enrolment, projects, support resources, conversion and business development.
  • Develop inspiring strategy, using complex budgets and best practice to exceed SLAs, robustly complying with University policy and external regulations.

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.

Leading a team of more than 30 highly motivated and experienced people, you will oversee financial budgets, recruitment operations and market development.  This post will always challenge you in a very complex and dynamic environment.  You'll have the chance to use your leadership and commercial skills to shape the future of the international student experience at Coventry University. Show us how you'll hit the ground running from day one by applying at the link below.
