Department
Education – International Student Office
Salary
£29,799 – £38,833 per annum
Location
University of Warwick, Coventry
Vacancy Overview
Fixed Term Position for 13 months
The Immigration Services team, which forms part of the Global Student Experience team based in the International Student Office, plays a really important role in supporting the growing number of international students at the University and protecting its Tier 4 Sponsor license. There are currently over 7,000 international students, a large proportion of which are sponsored by the University under Tier 4.
Interview Date: 25th May 2018 (to be confirmed).
Job Description
JOB PURPOSE:
A large part of the role of an International Student adviser is to support offer holders in obtaining suitable immigration permission for study in the UK which is key to converting an offer holder to an enrolled student. This support has a significant impact on the quality of the international student experience and can go a long way to mitigate the risk of a student choosing an alternative study destination in response to the complexity of the UK immigration system and the current negative rhetoric around immigration. The University’s Immigration Service also provides comprehensive advice on all post study work opportunities and so makes a direct contribution to the employability of the international student body.
International Student Advisers also play a key role in providing information and support to academic departments and students to enable them to comply with their Tier 4 responsibilities. Ensuring that the University of Warwick is able to demonstrate compliance in all areas of its Tier 4 sponsor licence obligations is mission critical. Failure to demonstrate compliance could result in the suspension or revocation of the University’s Tier 4 Sponsor license.
This rewarding post involves close liaison with students, University colleagues and outside agencies. You will be a motivated, innovative and adaptable professional with excellent operational management and interpersonal skills. You will need to be able to command respect from colleagues. A good knowledge and understanding of immigration and support issues relevant to international students is preferable, as is previous experience of providing immigration advice at OISC Level 1 is also preferable.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
1. Management
• You will have shared responsibility for the overseeing of the Warwick Check and Send Service and shared responsibility for day-to-day management of other government immigration schemes relating to students at the University of Warwick.
• You will ensure that the advisory service operates in accordance with the rules and standards of the OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) and the AISA (Association of International Student Advisers) code of ethics.
• You will be expected to identify your own developmental needs and ensure that you advise only where competent and equipped to do so.
• You may be required to share responsibility for financial management of sections of the student experience budgets
2. Advice
• You will provide immigration advice in the areas most relevant to the University’s international student body up to OISC level 1 initially, building up to level 2 within the first 3 months in post. You will provide advice and guidance to international students and staff and their dependants on a confidential individual basis, but also via the Immigration Service web pages, email, group workshops and presentations.
• You will exercise considerable judgement and draw on detailed knowledge of immigration regulations which are complex and prone to frequent changes.
• You will seek to innovate the way in which the Immigration Service provides immigration advice to ensure that the University’s advice resource is optimised and reaches as many service users as possible.
• You will be required to attend relevant Continuous Professional Development training courses to ensure you are competent to provide immigration advice.
• You will work with minimal supervision and will be required to manage your own caseload, which will involve interviewing students, deciding on the required form of action or referral, following the case until resolution and maintaining confidential notes in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
• You will act as a designated immigration adviser for the University of Warwick in accordance with the regulations set out by the OISC.
3. Compliance
• You will assist those colleagues responsible for Tier 4 compliance with compliance work pertaining to the Compliance Action Plan (an internal document which sets out the requirements of Tier 4 processes required to ensure compliance with all Tier 4 sponsor duties) which may involve developing systems and processes to support this function.
• Under the direction of the Head of Immigration Services and Senior Compliance Officer, you will assist with the management of certain compliance areas (recordkeeping, reporting, CAS assignment, enrolment and right to study checks, etc).
4. Communication
• You will develop and maintain internal relationships to advise staff on current and developing immigration legislation and its impact on University policy and procedures as directed by the Head of Immigration Services.
• You will collaborate closely with colleagues in the Office for Global Engagement and other areas of the University to ensure good practice in the provision of effective support services to international students.
• You will represent the Office for Global Engagement at University-wide student support-related meetings as well as advise academic departments on issues that affect international students
• You will be required to provide workshops and presentations to students and staff on a variety of immigration and international student experience topics.
• You will be responsible for the maintenance and development of information and guidance materials such as web-based and publicity provision including pre-arrival information for new international students.
• You will represent the viewpoint of the University externally to offices such as the Home Office, Embassies and UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) and communicate with these organisations on behalf of individual students.
5. Other
• You will contribute where appropriate to Office for Global Engagement duties in response to University Strategy and immigration legislation.
• This post may involve limited national and international travel in the pursuit of international student experience projects.
• You will perform any other duties as may be requested by the Assistant Director in supporting the work of the Global Student Experience Team within the Office for Global Engagement
