Nottingham College is one of the largest further education colleges in the country creating opportunities for employment and progression to higher education for the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, raising their prosperity and that of the local economy.

As we continue to support our students through their journey with us, we are seeking highly motivated and forward-thinking individuals to help us achieve our ambitions.

Full training will be provided for these roles, with on-going high quality continuing professional development.

Your role will support students to transition into college life, supporting them to navigate the steps through admissions to enrolment and beyond.

You will need to have energy and passion to provide the best for our students and have the ability and experience to work with a diverse range of customers both face to face and over the phone.

You should have a confident outgoing personality, who can provide an excellent first contact resolution service across the whole student journey. Your role will have a main specialist focus of student finance.

You will also support other services such as Reception and Enrolment from time to time, to give students the best possible experience throughout the student lifecycle at Nottingham College.

You will be expected to work in an agile working environment, and at times maybe required to work across any of the areas of the department and at any of our 7 campuses.

You will utilise your excellent administration skills whilst working collaboratively with a range of other professional services and curriculum colleagues across the college to ensure the service provided is outstanding and meets the needs of all of its diverse customers, students and stakeholders.
