Through an integrated enterprise strategy and well-established links with many of the world’s most successful companies, we give our students the skills and knowledge they need to drive change in every sector.

The school also has a large number of international postgraduate students and the EDO works to support them to adapt to life and study in the UK. You will support the peer advisor team who works with them to create and communicate both social and academic opportunities. 

This role is an important liaison between students and staff and the successful applicant will demonstrate excellent communication skills including knowledge and experience of using social media, and the current challenges facing students in UK HE.

This is a challenging and stimulating role which requires resilience and a commitment to our students and their education.
