The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Based in central London adjacent to Regent’s Park, we have been training musicians to the highest professional standards since our foundation in 1822. Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focussed on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical, jazz, and musical theatre.

We are looking for an experienced Admissions and Awards Administrator to join the Academy’s Admissions Team which forms part of the Registry. The Registry is a central department of the Academy which covers the entire student lifecycle from enquiry and admission, to enrolment, assessment and conferment of awards.

Reporting to the Assistant Registrar (Admissions and Financial Awards), you will support the organisation of admissions and auditions, co-ordinate pre-enrolment activity, handle UKVI reporting and support the administration of visa processing. You will also be responsible for collating and compiling all information relating to student scholarships and bursaries and communicating the outcomes with all relevant departments, as well as assisting with the administration of Student Loans and advising on fees and funding.

To be successful in this role, you will have an aptitude for working meticulously with student databases and large data sets, the ability to meet deadlines whilst working under pressure, have a great eye for detail and enjoy supporting and engaging with enquirers and potential applicants. You must have knowledge of classical and jazz music, including instrument families.

Completed applications must be received by 10am on Tuesday 18 May 2021.

Interviews are expected to be held on Tuesday 25 May 2021 online via Microsoft Teams.

Enquiries or applications from recruitment agencies will not be accepted.

The Academy is committed to promoting the welfare and safeguarding of all students.

We particularly welcome applications from black, asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we would like to increase the representation of these groups in these roles. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to greater results for students.
