We are looking for an assistant to join our busy advising team helping to provide information and advice to British students looking to fulfil their dreams of studying in the US.
The US-UK Fulbright Commission is a not-for-profit organisation funded by both governments to promote educational exchange between the US and the UK. The Commission offers prestigious Awards for postgraduate study and academic research in the US, as well as an advising service. As part of the EducationUSA advising network, the advising team is the only official source of US study information in the UK.
Each year, we provide impartial, unbiased information through our website and events for thousands of students looking to study in the US, and provide clear advice about how the admissions and financial aid process works. We look to inspire people to realise their dreams. A key event for us each year is USA College Day, held each autumn and which is Europe’s largest US college fair.
This role is a great opportunity to support the EducationUSA advisers with our work this summer, and play an important role in making this year’s College Day happen. Ideal for someone early in a career, this role will allow you to develop your experience and skills in areas such as event management, presenting and supporting communications.
You will offer a passion for higher education and a willingness to learn. You’ll have a great eye for detail, be organised and be efficient. You’ll be able to spot problems before they arise and excel at ensuring processes are followed – all while being sympathetic to students. Given the mission of our organisation, candidates with personal experience with the US higher education system will be at an advantage.
In return, US-UK Fulbright Commission offers exceptional opportunities for people interested in international education and you will be able to develop and hone your skills. You will join a small but dynamic and highly-motivated team of colleagues who are passionate about their work.
Please note, you must have the prior legal right to work in the UK.
