International Student Recruitment Manager at China Admissions

We’re hiring International Student Recruitment Manager at China Admissions

Are you entrepreneurial, someone who cares about people, don’t mind getting your hands dirty and looking to do something big?

We are China Admissions, an investor backed online platform for international students to apply to Chinese Universities. We partner with 200 top Chinese universities, and have over 180,000 registered students.

We are growing fast and looking for a head of operations to help upgrade our student experience to world class level as we scale up.

We are growing fast and looking for an excellent, globally minded international student recruitment manager to lead our student recruitment as we scale up.

Your Objectives

You will have the following objectives:

 Double the number of paid applications from 200 to 400 per month

You will be leading our drive to international students around the world. We are looking to double our growth as measured by application fees. One of the best ways to do this is by having consultations with 30 qualified students per day. Fast response to those students is important for conversions. Our average response rate is less than 9 hours. We want to reduce this and enable live chat to those qualified students. You will also be helping to hire an additional person to help support this live chat / student consulting and train them to consult with 30 students per day.

We are an automated platform and 40% of our students complete the application automatically. An important way of scaling our growth is improving the platform. You will be reviewing platform, content, tech, application process and phone system. Suggest improvements to team to support recruitment growth. Also adding content helps to automate the process, and you will be tasked with writing 5 articles to answer questions posed by students not currently answered on our platform.

3> Improve platform conversion rate from 3.6% to 6%.

You’ll be doing a full review of the student recruitment process from start to end yourself, and by speaking with at least 100 potential students. Identify the top 5 drop off points and potential improvements to our platform and content and sharing this with the content, tech and recruitment team.

One of the best ways to improve the conversion rate is to improve the emails students receive after registering. You can create 5 personalised email campaigns to be automatically sent to segments of students after registering or at a specific stage of our platform. After measuring the effect of this after 1000 emails have been sent we want you to evaluate your suggestions on if we should change, eliminate this or expand this.

3> Sign up 200 Global Agents to use our platform

We have a large number of global agents using our platform to apply to Chinese universities. We are looking to formalise this into a proper service. With the tech now finalised, contracts prepared, and login system for agents, you will be tasked to identify the best 100 global agents (out of the 600 who have already registered on our platform), and engaging them to use our platform, signing them up, and receiving at least 200 students from these agents. In the future we will assign a permanent manager to oversee global agents growth and management.

Working environment

We are looking for someone with the ability to communicate to a high level in English and who can write. An international and open mindset is a must. Studying abroad is also a big advantage. Chinese language, knowledge of tech, entrepreneurial interest or experience is an advantage but not necessary.

We value mindset and attitude over specific skills. We highly value the ability to learn, being open minded, caring about others with a service mindset and a full stack (generalist), get stuff done attitude. We expect you’ll have a track record of achievement and evidence of high standards of excellence. We also require strong ethics and integrity. The student comes first, even, when it is not in our own immediate interest. Conscientiousness and caring about the student is extremely important.

The salary is competitive, with full social insurance and work visa support for internationals. You’ll be surrounded by the smartest people in the industry who are fun to work with and great to learn from. We have a results oriented culture with flexible schedule and national and international travel opportunities.
