Head of Student Recruitment and Admissions

Salary: Competitive
Hours: Full Time - Flexible working options available
Contract Type: Permanent

ICMP has been developing and delivering music education and training to students of contemporary music for over 30 years. With a strong focus on the individual needs of students, it has a track record of delivering excellent graduate outcomes via a tailored educational experience with excellent links to industry.  Now is an exciting time for ICMP. We have recently been given Degree Awarding Powers by the Office for Students and we plan to pursue a University Title. Furthermore, there are compelling plans in place for the future shape of its educational offering, which will widen access and increase participation in its courses.

The role of Head of Student Recruitment and Admissions is a pivotal Senior Management position and will report directly to the Registrar and Chief Operating Officer. It will hold responsibility for the entirety of the admissions process including sales, policy, governance, and monitoring. ICMP is very internationally focused and intends to grow its international student numbers. This means that all these duties will be undertaken in a global context with all of the complexity that brings.  Equally, ICMP is particularly interested in how the post-holder can deliver innovation in customer service throughout the admissions process and with regard to data management and reporting.

Candidates must have extensive knowledge of the UCAS cycle, they should understand the UKVI procedures and have experience in developing and implementing international and home student recruitment strategies. They must be customer-facing and driven by objectives, with the credibility to lead a high performing team that can deliver on ambitious targets. Student recruitment is an integral part of the job and a commercial attitude is deemed to be important in line with ICMP’s culture and appetite for growth. Whilst the strategic dynamic is important, the post-holder will also need to be directly involved in the day-to-day business of admissions. Therefore, a willingness to embrace all aspects of the admissions journey is critical.
