The old way of applying to university sucks. We seek to WOW students with service so stunningly good they can’t believe it.
This means replying to questions with the speed of Elon Musks SpaceX rocket, 99%+ admissions success rate, and solving the days problems before we’ve had time for breakfast.
You will be responsible for managing and tracking metrics, coaching our admissions team and overall management of our admissions.
2> ⚡️Automate our admissions process.
Work with our tech team to ensure that students are fully informed through our platform, can use it easily and don’t need to contact us. It just works. Making the process as automated as possible.
