This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced recruiter to play a key role in the implementation of University of the Arts London’s (UAL) student recruitment strategy for three of UAL’s colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Chelsea College of Arts and Wimbledon College of Arts

As Head of College Student Recruitment for three UAL colleges, you will facilitate a joined-up and strategic approach to our student recruitment function, leading, implementing and developing a strategy that will help our three colleges to meet student recruitment intake targets, from both home and overseas.

Working closely with key college stakeholders and the UAL Student, Marketing and Recruitment team, you will monitor and report progress, whilst evaluating the impact of our current strategy. You will utilise key data to inform future strategies that best fit the selection process for each course within our portfolio, identifying and addressing any shortcomings or barriers in the admissions process.
