Profile

Together with the rest of the Recruitment and Outreach team, Katie is responsible for strengthening the relationships we have with schools and colleges. This involves coordinating and delivering activities that aim to help students make informed decisions about progression to HE.  These activities receive significant support from academic colleagues and are often delivered here in the University Quarter.  Katie also spends a lot of time 'on the road’ attending HE Fairs and delivering talks/ workshops to potential students. 
 
Katie’s role includes responsibility for organising our annual Information Day for Careers and HE Advisers - a key means of showcasing the University’s UG portfolio to opinion formers in schools and colleges.  She also works with colleagues in Faculties to organise two of the conferences that form part of our Year 12 Conference Series.
 
Joining the University in 2004, Katie started within the Marketing Campaigns team, where she worked on Preview Days, advertising and relationship building with applicants.  She moved to Recruitment and Outreach in 2006.  Her background before working at the University was in language teaching and she has qualifications in Marketing (CIM Professional Diploma) and HE Advice.
