This is an exciting opportunity to join a strategically important team.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to join our busy but friendly team, to facilitate and support increasing numbers of students into placements in the UK and overseas, creatively overcoming some of the challenges posed by Covid-19. Reporting to the Lead Placement Coordinator, you will have responsibility for your own student cohorts. You will market placements to students over the phone, virtually and face to face to stimulate and increase demand as well as deliver student preparation activities through Caseload Management, recruitment and selection technique sessions and skills development workshops.

Educated to A level or equivalent, you will be able to work effectively under pressure and enjoy achieving targets.
