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 in to 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.
Staffordshire University are looking for a proactive, customer focused individual to join our busy Education Liaison team. This role is pivotal in supporting the delivery of our UK recruitment strategy through the delivery of engaging talks and workshops in schools and colleges and delivery of on-campus events. This role will involve working to targets, account management and managing projects.
