Careers and Systems has the leading responsibility for student employability at the University of York. We work to enhance students’ skills, aspirations, experiences and career planning so that all students feel supported in understanding and achieving their potential and goals. In addition, our Careers team work closely with staff in academic departments and across the wider University, our colleges, and with our students’ unions, all of whom are also committed to enhancing students’ employability.
This new role seeks to further enhance the service already offered, specifically with an international student audience in mind. The postholder will conduct a needs assessment of our international students in order to improve our existing offer, and identify areas of new activity. The role holder will then work with colleagues from across the institution to implement the changes identified. The role holder will also develop a plan for how to best disseminate this information to students and staff.
A key purpose of this role is to share actionable insight about international employability with colleagues across the institution, especially within careers and placements. They will review existing services and processes through the lens of an international student viewpoint, and make recommendations on what changes can be made.
The role holder will also work to make our offer embedded into the wider student journey, making sure students are well informed before, during and after their time at York. As such, the role holder will work very closely with Student Recruitment and Marketing, International Recruitment (central and regional offices), both our Student Unions (YUSU and GSA), and the Office for Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni (OPPA)
Based at University of York campus (with some remote working options available)
