Director of Admissions

Applications are invited for the post of Director of Admissions at Lancing College with effect from January 2021 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

Lancing is one of the UK’s leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools with a reputation for excellence. The College, which admits pupils from the age of 13, is seeking to appoint an energetic and forward thinking individual to provide dynamic leadership to the Admissions Office and fulfil a key ambassadorial role.

A member of the Senior Management Team, the post holder will work closely with the Director of External Relations and Communications, to maximise the recruitment of a full list of pupils for entry each September, filling all available spaces in Houses and building a waiting list for future years. The role of Director of Admissions is a demanding and wide-ranging senior post requiring a proactive and outgoing approach. Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to form strong relationships are essential. 

This exciting leadership position will most likely be suited to an experienced professional from within the independent schools’ sector with a proven track record within an admissions related context. This could be directly from a Registry function, or indirectly via hands-on involvement with customer facing aspects of the admissions process, for example as a Housemaster/mistress or another senior role within a senior or prep school. The successful applicant will possess the ability to assess the range of capabilities and potential of prospective pupils aged 10 – 18 years.

The salary will be commensurate with the experience and qualifications of the successful candidate but will be highly attractive.
