As a result of an ever expanding and diversifying university, we currently have a vacancy for the role of Senior Student Recruitment Manager based at our Leeds Campus (with line management responsibility for the Student Recruitment Managers based in Chester and Manchester).

The University of Law at Leeds is located at 15-16 Park Row, one of the most prestigious streets in Leeds city centre, at the heart of its legal and business community and just five minutes' walk from the railway station. With more than 200 law firms operating from the city, Leeds has been described by the UK Legal 500 as 'second only to London'. The University of Law Business School also operates out of this campus.

The Senior Student Recruitment Manager will report into the Head of Student Recruitment with a dotted line into the Campus Deans. You will be responsible for the development and implementation of a regional student recruitment plan that reflects the national student recruitment strategy, to deliver increased student numbers and KPIs. This will involve working closely with the other Senior Student Recruitment Mangers.

This role is a strategic position and will require you to be extremely commercial by developing an in-depth understanding of the local market/competition and by being driven by data to allow for the development and implementation of strategies that provide for competitive advantage.

You will be expected to:
• lead on the regional strategy working closely with your local campus(es)
• act as national lead for a core area, by developing strategies and tactics to support growth targets
• develop market-based business cases for initiatives, reviewing and developing our work in key markets, working with internal and external stakeholders.

Some posts within the University are subject to a DBS check - you will be notified of this during the application process. As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals are currently under-represented within the University - which does not reflect our diverse student body - we would particularly welcome applications from BAME candidates. All appointments will be made on merit.
