We have one full-time Admissions Officer vacancy available as fixed term maternity leave cover from April 2023 until April 2024. Admissions Officers are members of our central Admissions team, which handles undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research programme applications to all the university’s Schools and Institutes. Our Admissions Officers are assigned either to the Postgraduate or Undergraduate team but are expected to work flexibly across team boundaries to ensure that applicants receive a consistently good service during peak times. This Admissions Officer position is primarily to handle postgraduate programme applications.

The ideal candidate for this position will have recent experience of working in an administrative role supporting the admission of students, ideally in a central admissions team in higher education. Experience of offer-making under delegated authority from academic departments will be an advantage.

You will be a self-motivated and flexible individual who is equally capable of working independently and as a member of team. You will be well-organized, able to prioritize, and capable of working under pressure while maintaining accuracy. You will be IT literate, with experience of using complex databases in an academic context, and have excellent interpersonal and oral and written communication skills. You will be capable of carrying out tasks and making decisions consistently within a clear policy and regulatory framework, referring to managers only in complex cases.

The post is based at Department W in London. It is a full time, fixed term appointment for up to 12 months. Starting salary will be in the range of £37,348 – £43,592 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.


We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum (pro-rata for part-time/fixed-term), a season ticket loan scheme and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work life balance and family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.

The Admissions team, in common with all central Professional Services staff at Queen Mary, works in line with the University’s Hybrid Working Policy. All team members are required to work on site at least two days per week and will normally work remotely for two to three days per week, by agreement with their line manager.

Queen Mary’s commitment to our diverse and inclusive community is embedded in our appointments processes. Reasonable adjustments will be made at each stage of the recruitment process for any candidate with a disability. We are open to considering applications from candidates wishing to work flexibly.
