Summary

We are seeking a qualified careers professional (Level 6 in careers advice and guidance or career development) who is enthusiastic and outgoing, an excellent communicator and listener, who enjoys working with people. You’ll be able to make decisions and work independently. You’ll be committed to the highest quality of customer service and student learning, as well as your own professional development, and you’ll be able to demonstrate an understanding of, and empathy to the needs of a large, diverse and international student community.


The role of Careers Consultant (International) is within the Careers & Enterprise team with the objectives of:
• Ensuring the delivery of a high quality careers and enterprise service that embeds the learning of job seeking, career planning, enterprise and employability skills within the curriculum and through co-curricular activity
• Providing clear, timely and accessible advice about careers and enterprise to our student population, past and present, and other customers of Student Experience & Support


You’ll be involved in designing and delivering the team’s activities. To deliver an excellent service, it will be vital that you listen to what our stakeholders have to say. The Careers Consultant (International) will respond accordingly to the customer feedback gathered and analysed in relation to their advisory and curriculum development services.


We need a Careers Consultant (International) with creativity, enthusiasm, professional and technical skills and a commitment to providing up to date and relevant advice and guidance to students through curriculum development as well as through a more traditional advisory service. We need people who are full of ideas and the confidence to implement them, who are able to work in a team and work independently with equal ease.


You’ll work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to identify and address the employability needs of students and alumni – with a focus on the employability needs of students and alumni from outside the UK (including securing work based learning in the UK, and understanding and taking actions on post-study visa routes), and on the needs of all students and alumni who are seeking work based learning or graduate employment outside the UK.


You’ll work with colleagues to embed relevant skill development within the curriculum and student experience, including bespoke workshops and train-the-trainer work with colleagues, including programmes with significant international student cohorts, to address students’ skill development needs (including employability skills sought and expected by graduate employers, career planning skills, job seeking skills, job application and interview skills).


We recognise the importance of a healthy balance between work and home life. While we need our staff to be available to deliver an excellent service, and some evening and weekend working may be required, we are open to agile ways of working that provide colleagues with flexibility, such as flexible hours and/or some working from home, wherever work commitments allow.
