Job Description

Who we are:

Activate Learning is a pioneering education group with a global reach, committed to transforming lives through our approach to learning.

We see our employees as individuals, empowering them to make the right choices for their ambitions and careers. We value our people as vital to our continued success and aspire to a diverse, open and inclusive environment that provides the motivation for everyone to pursue their career goals and flourish.

When you work for Activate Learning, you're working for an organisation that provides you with the advantages of a large employer, a trusted partner in your career development, and a transformational way of working whilst also investing in building a community environment for everyone.

Together, we will bring out the best version of yourself.

About the role:

We are looking for temporary Summer Enrolment Assistants to support our teams across the summer, the busiest part of the academic year.

As our first point of support to prospective students, you'll be greeting new learners and guiding them through the enrolment process, supporting with their online enrolment, and completing crucial steps like checking right to study and supporting bursary enquiries. As part of our established team of friendly advisers, you'll help to ensure we deliver and maintain an exceptional service to all customers.

You may not have considered using your skills in this way before, but this could give you the skills and experience in customer service and administrative support within the education sector to provide you with a varied and fulfilling career path.

These opportunities are on a casual basis, with up to full-time hours, between the end of July and September 2024 to support with our main student enrolment period. Roles are available at our other colleges across Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey.

What do you need to be successful as an Enrolment Assistant at Activate Learning?

You will have a positive mindset and a commitment to providing excellent customer service. No experience is required.

Strong personal organisation and communication skills are required for this role. IT skills are essential, along with the ability to use Microsoft Office applications. Ideal candidates will also have a familiarity with CRM systems or other systems involved in student recruitment, and experience working with data.

This is a fast-paced environment, and as a team we will handle a large volume of enquiries, we are looking for candidates who are self-motivated, and have a flexible approach, with a proactive attitude to problem solving and the ability to work to deadlines.

Applications are reviewed and shortlisted on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to interview, appoint and close adverts early due to the volume of applications we receive. As there are a variety of roles available at various locations, interviews will take place as a panel.

We therefore encourage you to apply at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment as once we have closed a vacancy you will be unable to submit your application form.

Activate Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo a DBS check at the appropriate level.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK as we do not sponsor work permits and work permits from other organisations are unacceptable as proof of right to work in the UK.

Applications are encouraged from all candidates meeting or exceeding the minimum criteria for the role regardless of age, disability, gender, orientation, race, religion or ethnicity.

Activate Learning are committed to employing people with disabilities and will ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible. If you require any reasonable adjustments either at application or interview stage please contact the talent team directly.

If an agency submits an unsolicited CV to any partner or employee of our company, you should be aware that they have no authority to enter into an arrangement with you. Should we require recruitment agency involvement, we will contact the agencies on our preferred suppliers list, and we would ask that you respect the relationships we have already built with these suppliers.
