The Role
MCS is seeking to appoint an Admissions Manager. The post holder will be a member of the team assisting the Registrar in the management of the process of admitting pupils to the School as per the team structure shown within the information pack; this process includes initial enquiry, application, testing, interviews, offer of a place and induction to the School. The School intends that every prospective parent and pupil should receive a bespoke, personal service that ensures that they feel well treated and have had a good experience whether or not they are eventually offered a place at MCS.
