It is also the oldest art and design university in continuous operation and has been ranked as the world‘s number one art and design university for a remarkable ten consecutive years, according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2024 – the worldwide survey of academic and industry opinion.

We are looking for an Events and Recruitment Officer to join the RCA’s Communications and Marketing team. The Events and Recruitment Officer role is an important delivery focus role within the Student Recruitment & Marketing function of the RCA’s C&M team. Marketing & Recruitment is responsible for the delivery of applicants to the RCA and plays a significant role in the delivery of revenue from student recruitment. 

We know that the decision to study at the RCA is an important one for our students, especially if they are relocating to London, either internationally or from somewhere else in the UK. This role plays a vital role in the student journey by providing aspiring students with opportunities to meet with the RCA face-to-face, either in-person or online. By doing so they have the chance to ask more questions and feel more confident in their choice to study at the RCA. 

This role exists primarily to: 

Support the organisation and delivery of UK and international student recruitment events

Support UK applicants to the RCA with their application journey, ensuring that they feel supported through the process and welcome at the RCA

The post holder will work with a large volume of events, so in a fast paced environment or ability to handle multiple projects at different stages is important.

Hybrid working for this role will be possible, but a minimum of two days a week will be required on site in order to manage telephone contact and events - this may need to increase during busy event times. Some out-of-hours working at events may also be required.

This is a full-time role however part-time applications are also welcomed.
