The University of Greenwich is home to a truly global community of staff and students. Our philosophy of Education without Boundaries means that we are committed to supporting to deliver the highest levels of student success, enterprise, and employment outcomes for students from all walks of life.

The University has an ambitious strategic plan for growth and anticipates continued strong performance in future recruitment cycles. The Marketing & External Relations Directorate is adding new positions, including a new Student Recruitment Events Lead to ensure service delivery levels.   

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced student recruitment and events professional to coordinate the delivery of large-scale student recruitment and conversion events (including Open Days, Applicant Days, virtual events, and fairs). The purpose of the role is to ensure a positive high-quality experience for event attendees driving student applications and applicant conversion to the University. The post holder will take full responsibility for the day-to-day logistics of student recruitment events, creating and coordinating the completion of event work plans. 

The post holder will balance responsibility for coordinating all student recruitment events with the additional responsibilities of line management and of deputising, when required, for the Student Recruitment Events Manager. The post holder will monitor, manage, and allocate workloads to events staff pre, during, and post event to coordinate their effective running and in accordance with work plans, objectives, and health and safety polices.  

This varied role requires excellent event organisation skills as well as interpersonal, communication and management skills. The successful candidate will be passionate about both higher education and events, and will be knowledgeable about the applicant journey and how best to support applicants as well as experienced in coordinating large scale events. You will be creative and innovative, always looking for ways to improve the applicant experience. 

The post holder will be required to work open days and other student recruitment events, working flexibly including evenings and occasional weekends. The role is based at our Avery Hill Campus in Eltham, although on-the-day events support may be required at our Greenwich and Medway campuses.  Please note this role will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

We look forward to receiving applications from candidates who can demonstrate a passion for and a clear commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion, as well as the vision, values, and aspirations of the University of Greenwich.
