Contextual Admissions Administrator

Do you want to support our commitment to widen access for students from all backgrounds? Are you enthusiastic about delivering an exceptional customer service and student experience? 

We are looking for a highly motivated member of staff to administrate the University’s contextual admissions schemes Access to Leeds and Realising Opportunities. The role will involve the processing of Access to Leeds applications, including confirming applicant eligibility. You will also be the first point of contact for queries from both students and teachers. The administrative support for Realising Opportunities will involve similar responsibilities in support of that scheme, with support provided to the Contextual Admissions Co-ordinator in promoting the scheme to schools. 

An ability to work accurately and with great attention to detail is vital to this role. Both schemes are very busy and fast moving, so an ability to work accurately to tight deadlines while working on parallel tasks is required. You will also need excellent communications skills and enthusiasm for working in the area of Widening Participation.
