Director of Admissions
This is an exciting time to join the College with an ambitious programme of development
scheduled for the 175th anniversary, aspirations for global partnerships, and increasing interest for boarding places in a beautiful setting that affords pupils with the space and time to learn.
The Director of Admissions is a central role within the College and provides an excellent opportunity for a highly-organised, personable and collegiate individual to lead this key department at an exciting time. The successful candidate will lead on all elements associated with admissions and own the pupil journey from prospective to pupils commencing their education at Glenalmond while it is absolutely accepted that a whole school effort is required. The post-holder will work closely with Marketing, Finance, and Development, in addition of course, to the Senior Leadership Team and House staff. The successful candidate will be part of the Strategy Group and will report to the Bursar.
Appointment is from February but the start date is flexible for the right candidate. This position is full-time and will especially suit a candidate with experience of working in a public or private sector organisation with experience at a similar level and performing a similar function.
The Director of Admissions works in the Admissions Office, overlooking the beautiful Front
Quad, in the heart of the College.
In 2021/22, the College employs 131 members of staff across all departments. Within the
Admissions team there is an Admissions Officer and Admissions Assistant, both of whom report to the Director of Admissions.
At the College, and within the team, there is a strong emphasis on teamwork, mutual support
and flexibility, and the College provides opportunities for innovation and development.
Members of the Support staff are appraised every year. This process provides an opportunity
to review progress and identify future opportunities for development.
Glenalmond College is located in 300 acres of stunning countryside in rural Perthshire; its extensive campus comprises significant grounds, historic, listed early Victorian buildings as well
as more modern developments.
It is an unrivalled setting to show potential families around and also a beautiful location to
work at, with unrivalled vistas and fresh air for a lunchtime walk.
