International Recruitment Officers at USW are regional specialists for international student recruitment. They manage a network of recruitment agents, school counsellors, sponsors and other key stakeholders and work face to face with potential students to maximise the University’s recruitment potential. They have an in-depth knowledge of the education systems in their regions which they use to develop and deliver segmented marketing strategies and specific regional market plans to meet the University’s student recruitment targets. Additionally, each International Recruitment Officer is assigned a Faculty and familiarises themselves with key staff and courses acting as a conduit between their Faculty and the rest of the International team. International Recruitment Officers also support and inform the development of faculty international plans.
The anticipated market responsibility for this particular vacancy will be South East Asia and faculty responsibility for the Faculty of Life Science and Education, but this may vary depending on business needs and individual skillsets.
In addition, the post-holder will oversee the development and implementation of an effective digital content strategy and social media campaigns for the international marketing team (working in close cooperation with the Marketing and Student Recruitment team).
There is therefore a strong liaison element to this role, which requires advanced negotiation skills. You will be a graduate and a self-motivated individual with a strong attention to detail and understanding of other cultures. You will be able to deal with multiple demands concurrently and be able to prioritise your work independently and efficiently. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be able to maintain productive relationships and provide creative, innovative and competitive ways of securing international enrolments for the University.
