In addition to this, you will also contribute to the planning process for welcome and arrivals at the beginning of each academic year, ensuring that all students receive the necessary support. Some administrative tasks will be involved, including overseeing a generic email inbox, taking minutes at the International Student Experience Group meetings, and coordinating initiatives and events specifically for international students. While previous experience in higher education is not mandatory, a good understanding of student support needs and equality, diversity, and inclusion is desirable.

You should also possess strong organizational abilities and be able to effectively plan, prioritize, and manage workloads. As the team operates in a fast-paced environment, adaptability and flexibility are essential, as is the ability to work well under pressure.
