Following the launch of the new Bishop’s Stortford College brand, this is an exciting time to join the Marketing and Admissions Department as the College looks to build its reputation nationally and internationally.

Reporting to the Director of Marketing and Communications, the Head of Admissions will play a key role in delivering the College Marketing and Recruitment strategy, ensuring we provide a first-class service to our applicants and stakeholders, developing new recruitment markets, and building and promoting the College brand externally.

Part of the College’s Professional Services, the Admissions Team provides the link to our prospective pupils and parents and ensures those pupils are admitted to the College efficiently and compliantly and that clear admission processes are in place. The Head of Admissions will be responsible for leading and developing the Admissions function, with particular responsibility for Senior School admissions, including sixth form, international (including UKVI pupils), and boarding.

This is a varied and challenging role, requiring excellent organisation, communication (written and verbal) and relationship building skills, with a primary focus on customer service. As an experienced admissions or sales professional, you will have experience of stakeholder and relationship management, and understand that a hands-on approach and a clear understanding of your product are essential to succeed in this role, along with the ability to manage and engage a team.

Whilst previous experience of school’s admissions would be beneficial, it is not essential, though you should have an enthusiasm for the sector and understanding of the changing landscape and our customers’ needs.

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A copy of the College’s Child Protection Policy is available on the website.

Bishop’s Stortford College is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; all employees are subject to a number of pre-employment and safeguarding checks, including an enhanced DBS check. References and an online search will be undertaken prior to interview. To this end, robust Safeguarding processes and procedures are in place to support families, pupils, staff, and volunteers. In compliance with the sharing of information guidance/best practice, any concerns are passed to designated teachers, trained in Safeguarding.
