About Arden University

At Arden University our vision is to make education more accessible, engaging and beneficial to people everywhere. Founded in 1990 with an exemplary record in UK Higher Education, we launched Arden University in 2016, and have since become a well-respected, multiple award nominated and ground-breaking new entrant to the University sector and have gone from being a well-established partner to traditional Universities, to a five-campus university in our own right, with online and blended learning modes leading the way in flexible Higher Education.  

We are a values driven organisation, and in line with our values of supportiveness, integrity, innovation and ownership, we want to make sure that each of our study centres is delivering an outstanding student experience that is completely aligned to our brand promise, whilst providing a tailored and personalised experience reflective of the local needs and culture of the student and staff profile. We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our students and the importance our staff across the organisation place on supporting students to realise their potential. We recognise that the pressures of people’s hectic, modern lives often means our students are constrained - by location, cost, family/caring commitments or simply time. By making our degrees, masters and MBA programmes available through both online distance learning and flexible on-campus ‘blended’ study, we have been able to support students ranging from 18 to 80 years old to achieve their ambitions and benefit from Higher Education.

About the role: 

Reporting to the course advisor manager and in collaboration with your on-site colleagues, you will be the driving force of student recruitment at your local study centre. Focusing on the recruitment of high calibre students, you will be responsible for promoting Arden’s values, student experience and programme selection as you guide all new prospects through the application and enrolment process. 

Main duties and Responsibilities:

A course advisor is responsible for the successful enrolment of new students to the University. You will take ownership of your individual student recruitment targets, and work towards the delivery of this obligation with full adherence to Arden University quality standards and admissions policies.
You will collaborate with your local and centrally based colleagues to support on-going development of the Arden University Student Experience at your study centre, with a view to recruit and retain high quality students. 
You will provide a consultative service and build strong relationships with your application pipeline, built on a foundation of integrity, transparency and trust.

Personal Profile:

You will be creative problem solver and excellent influencer with a real passion for delivering service excellence. You will have high energy, determination and drive, always championing the voice of your colleagues and students.

This is an exciting time to join a University that represents the future of Higher Education – for more information or a full job description please contact
