Please note that this role is only open to current University of Leeds students or recent graduates.

Do you have experience of working in the welcome team or in a similar role to deliver welcome support and social/cultural activities? Would you like to supervise a team to deliver high quality support and activities for new students from all over the world?

We have a number of positions for Coordinators to work together to coordinate the day-to-day running of welcome and registration support, and social and cultural activities, on behalf of the International Student Office and Student Operations teams.

You’ll be working across several locations, liaising with key partners, supporting and motivating the team, and ensuring resources and equipment are in place to provide excellent customer service and student experience for new international students. You’ll also help to improve the experience of UK students and inspire all students to take part in Global Community activities.

Summer Information/Global Community Coordinators supervise the team providing welcome, information, social and cultural support for international students taking summer Language Centre courses in preparation for starting an undergraduate or postgraduate programme.
