Student Recruiter & Partnership Coordinator

This is a 12 month full-time term position with the possibility of an extension or permanent position.

The Student Recruiter & Partnership (SRP) Coordinator is a key new role in our growing Skills Development Division. Reporting to the Director, Skills Development and working closely with other divisional staff, the SRP Coordinator will be responsible for the development and implementation of a new Student Recruitment and Program Marketing Plan and a Skills Partnership Development Strategy.

 

This role will be responsible for actively engaging with Indigenous communities, organizations, and people to identify and attract prospective students to our Foundations and Futures in Innovation and Technology (FIT) programs and modules, including face to face deliveries in the Lower Mainland and across the province, and for increasing enrollment in our online program as well.

 

The SRP Coordinator will also identify and develop new institutional partnership opportunities with other educational institutions, Indigenous organizations, and First Nations to support the growth and development of the Division and our technology skills programs.

 

This position requires an exceptional communicator and highly motivated individual with the ability to provide both information and inspiration to prospective Indigenous students undertaking a new educational journey in technology. The role also requires strong relationship and partnership development skills, ideally with an already developed provincial education and Indigenous network.
