Full time


£39,275 - £47,120 per annum

King's Cross, London UK

The role of the Academic Recruitment Coordinator is to contribute to the recruitment of students to the College and University by advising applicants and making offers on the most appropriate CSM or UAL course at all levels, as well as, when required, running workshops, delivering guest lectures and representing UAL and the College when participating in promotional activities in the UK and abroad. This role involves travel overseas to fulfil the role and duties (approx. 10 weeks per year).

Why choose us? 

University of the Arts London [UAL] is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.

Central Saint Martins’ world-leading reputation for arts and design education stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at Central Saint Martins, while challenging the boundaries of their discipline, understand that what we do is always connected to others. Our community goes beyond buildings, beyond disciplines and beyond borders. From local neighbours to global partners, Central Saint Martins collaborates with others to build knowledge and transform objects, systems and lives for the better. We understand that good things happen when people work together.

Now is a crucial time for Central Saint Martins and the University of the Arts London. The pandemic and anti-racism movement in their own and intersecting ways set a new landscape for higher education in the creative arts, in which ways of teaching and operating will be reconsidered, and where the values of social justice and anti-racism must underpin everything we do. These conditions set both urgent challenges but also the potential to reflect on what we do. Central Saint Martins aims to engage with and lead the global debate about the arts, performance and design, and their role in societal transformation. We also aim to empower our graduates to be the leading practitioners in their field, as well as responsible citizens of the world. We hope you will consider joining our creative community.
