Staffordshire University is on a journey to become the foremost modern higher education institution in the UK, with an international reputation for excellence, and we are looking for inspirational and effective people to take us to the next stage.

In 2018 we broke into the World University rankings for the first time and were named as a top 50 UK university by the Guardian. The quality of our student experience has placed us in the top 10 for teaching quality in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and in 2019 we achieved a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Many of our students come from areas with low rates of participation in higher education and we continually strive to ensure the courses we offer meet the needs of people and employers. We are expanding our non-traditional, flexible study options, particularly in apprenticeships serving the public sector.

You can join us at a time when we begin the next step of our transformation journey. The new £40m Catalyst Building will deliver 6,500 new apprentices in the next decade, boosting both the local and national economy. The development of our offer to new academic areas and geographic locations will see us expand our reach and make an innovative offer to a new generation of students.

We are a university of and for our community: local, national and global. If you share our values and have the skills to deliver our vision, we want to hear from you.

We are looking for a proactive, customer focused individual to join our busy Education Liaison team as a Recruitment Events Officer. This role is pivotal in supporting the delivery of our UK recruitment and outreach strategy through the delivery of key annual recruitment events and the annual school and colleges calendar of events.

This role will involve working to targets, event management and managing projects. 

This position will cover the Staffordshire region, but national travel will be expected at certain times of the year, so the ability to work flexibly is essential. 

We are looking for someone who is engaging, an excellent communicator with the ability to persuade and influence and is confident working on their own initiative. Previous experience of working in higher education and an understanding of the UCAS cycle would be advantageous.

  • Access to continued professional and personal development
  • An opportunity to become part of the wider University community

  • Discounted Health & Fitness Facilities on site at the Stoke Campus
  • Discounted Travel by Rail or Bus, with the option of season tickets loans

This is a Fixed Term Contract to cover maternity leave and this role is subject to an Enhanced DBS check.

Whilst the University campus is currently closed, the University is still open, and we are providing online lessons to our students as well as essential services. We welcome your application during this time and aim to recruit to new posts using digital capabilities such as Skype or Microsoft Teams.
