Situated right in the heart of the vibrant, historic city of York, York St John University has a long and proud tradition as a distinguished education provider, with 2016 marking our 175th anniversary.  As one of the fastest growing Universities in the UK, our success is founded on the quality of academic teaching and research, our thriving campus environment, our professional and pastoral support, and our values-based approach.

Diversity is a key priority for the University, and the International Directorate at York St John is central to facilitating diversity among the student and staff populations. The field of international higher education is constantly changing and makes work in this area particularly fast-paced and interesting.

The International Admissions & Compliance Officer will work closely with the University's Visa & Compliance and Admissions teams, serving as an expert in international qualifications and entry requirements. You will deliver an efficient and professional service to our overseas applicants and agent partners from key markets, evaluating applications with an eye for quality as well as from the Home Office compliance perspective. You will make offers, conduct interviews, and issue documentation which international applicants will use to apply for their student visas. You will be able to work well under pressure and deliver results to specified Service Level Agreements.

You should have:

  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Ability to work well under pressure and to handle a varied but demanding workload
