Abingdon School is seeking to appoint a UCAS Applications Coordinator to take overall responsibility for the UCAS process in the Sixth Form, supported by a team of people including the Sixth Form tutors and others in the Sixth Form team (e.g. the UCAS assistant and the Overseas Applications Advisor). This is a key appointment with significant responsibility.
The successful candidate will be highly organised, reliable and very able when it comes to completing administrative tasks. They will also either already have or be enthusiastic about acquiring a deep understanding of the UK universities landscape. This role handles a heavy workload, particularly in the September to December period of the year, and it involves interaction with a variety of people in and outside of the school. A friendly, personable approach is essential as is the ability to remain calm under pressure.
The post-holder will be required to work on a mainly term time basis although some work during school holidays, specifically mid to late August, will be necessary. We are open to proposals of flexible working arrangements for this role, recognising that elements of the job can be undertaken remotely (e.g. at home), though a substantial presence in school will also be necessary.
Closing date: Monday 19 March 2018 (midday)
Interview date: w/c 26 March 2018
