Appointment of the Director of UK Recruitment and Admissions

Welcome

Croeso and thank you for your interest in our University. As a relatively recent arrival myself to this wonderful institution, I am aware how exciting embarking on a job application can be.

Bangor is a unique institution, the most Welsh in language and attitude, but also the most international in outlook and ambition. Despite current challenges, the University’s leadership is focused on building our research and teaching strengths to create a strong, confident Civic University which not only serves Bangor and our region, but is also genuinely transformational for Wales and the world.

I joined the University in 2020 and following a strategic review of our marketing, recruitment and communications activity we are now seeking to appoint to the new role of Director of UK Recruitment and Admissions.  This new role, which can be based either in Bangor or Wrexham, will lead a major review of the central student recruitment operation ensuring that future plans are data led, target focussed and sector leading.

The post holder will bring significant experience of UK student recruitment, with evidence of successfully meeting or exceeding recruitment targets.  The role will have a high profile and you will need to proactively and constructively challenge conventional thinking enabling the University to achieve its ambition of increasing UK student recruitment at all levels.

Bangor University has fantastic academic and teaching credentials and we have seen a significant increase in applications numbers this year, this crucial post will play a critical part in leading a new strategic drive to further increase our student intake. I am delighted to have joined this wonderful institution and I do hope you share our aspirations and are excited by the prospect of joining us.

About us

Our History and Today

The University was founded as a direct result of a campaign in the late nineteenth century for higher education provision in Wales. Funds were raised by public subscription to establish a college of university rank in Bangor. An important feature of its foundation was the voluntary contributions made by local people, including amongst others, many farmers and quarrymen who could ill afford to donate money, but did so despite the difficulties in order to benefit future generations.

The University was founded as the University College of North Wales. It opened its doors on 18 October 1884 in an old coaching inn with 58 students and 10 members of staff. The students received degrees from the University of London until 1893 when the University of Wales, Bangor became one of the three original constituent colleges of the University of Wales.

Bangor has had a long tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on the student experience. Today around 11,000 students study at the University, and it has approximately 2000 staff, based in fourteen Academic Schools within three Colleges, and supported by a number of Professional Services. In addition, we have 600 students studying at Bangor College China and around 2400 students studying validated programmes in the UK and overseas. We have more than 150 Students’ Union Clubs and Societies which were named best in the UK at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2018.

The University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.

The most recent National Student Survey results place Bangor amongst the UK’s top 10 mainstream universities for student satisfaction and we are particularly proud of our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Gold which highlights our staff’s work in providing outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students. Sustainability is central to all our activities and we are ranked 8th in the world in the UI Green metric

More recently, the University, alongside many others, is facing challenges. Recruitment has been below target in recent years which has led to associated financial challenges, and we are exploring ways of increasing and diversifying our income streams. Good progress has already been made in addressing these challenges (numbers are improving, particularly in postgraduate) and this provides an opportunity for these two new positions to have a key role in taking the University into the next phase of its development.

Teaching and Learning

The University prides itself on the quality of teaching offered. This was supported in a recent review by the UK Quality Assurance Agency, which resulted in the highest possible endorsement of the University’s academic standards.

Students are enrolled on 324 undergraduate programmes and 125 postgraduate taught programmes. Undergraduate students are registered to 1883 modules. There are 340 undergraduate modules offered through the medium of Welsh, and Bangor is recognised as the leading provider of Welsh medium education in Wales.

Research

Research is central to Bangor University; it is an integral part of our teaching and a passion of our academic staff. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for all UK universities.

Research in Sports Science; Modern Languages; Welsh; Education; Linguistics; Ocean Sciences; Biological Sciences; Environment, Natural Resources and Geography; Psychology; Healthcare Sciences; and Medical Sciences have all been ranked in the top 20 in the UK.

Research and teaching are closely inter-linked: almost all research academics teach, ensuring that our students benefit from the knowledge created by our research.

Community

The University’s Arts and Innovation Centre, Pontio (meaning ‘to bridge’ in Welsh), provides a wide variety of high quality activities and entertainment for both the University and the local community, championing Welsh language and culture. The University has a dedicated Widening Access Centre that provides a vital link between the University and its surrounding community. We are also committed to the principles of sustainable development and global citizenship and to ensuring that all our functions reflect this.

Mission

A strong, confident institution recognised regionally, nationally and internationally as a centre of excellence for its varied portfolio of teaching and research, and for the unique, multicultural, inclusive experience it provides for its staff and students.

Language and culture

Since its inception in 1884, the University has a tradition of integral links with its local community. Our identity is inextricably associated with our location and we play a leading role in the Welsh culture and economy and in fostering the Welsh language. We are the leading provider of higher education through the medium of Welsh, in terms of volume, breadth of courses and expertise, and we are the sector’s standard-bearer for Welsh Language services and support.

The University actively supports staff to learn Welsh and in using it at all levels of University work. This support will be made available to the successful candidate, if required.

Arall

  • Mae gallu cyfathrebu yn Gymraeg yn ddymunol ar gyfer y swydd hon. (Os nad yw ymgeiswyr yn gallu siarad/ysgrifennu Cymraeg ar hyn o bryd, mae llawer o gyfleoedd i ddysgu os bydd yr ymgeisydd llwyddiannus yn dymuno gwneud hynny.)
