Campus Coordinator: Role Profile

The Campus Coordinator is the glue that holds it all together. As the central cog in the machine the Campus Coordinator ensures that all members of the team have access to the correct information at the right time, whether that be student medical information or which student has a birthday. They are the main point of contact for the parents and therefore will handle the day to day channels of communication between all parties.

Through the upkeep of records and documents such as registers, room numbers, dates of stay and courses studied the Campus Coordinator will be able to plot the location of all the students at any time of the day, allowing for a safe and secure environment for the students to live and learn.

The Campus Coordinator will be involved in the supporting of students and their pastoral needs. They will be able to handle simple medical issues and will liaise with the Nurse and the Programme Director to address more serious medical and welfare concerns.

Why become a Campus Coordinator?

The Campus Coordinator will receive administrative training and support and will have the freedom to put their own stamp on the programme through their implementation of the systems and processes. The role has responsibility not just over the administration but also the staff and students and that brings great experience in leadership and management not usually associated with an administrative role.

What skills do you need?

  • Confident using basic spreadsheets
  • Ability to draft emails and written documents
  • Highly organised and with experience in an administrative role
  • Passionate about youth work and education
  • Discretion, reliable and professional

Staff Testimonials

Rebecca Menmuir

Campus Administrator

Applying for the Counsellor role in 2013 was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Since then, I’ve spent two summers as a Counsellor and one as a Campus Administrator. Whatever position you have in ORA, you’re supported by a fantastic network of people, many of whom become lifelong friends. As Campus Administrator, you’re part of the heart of the campus and being able to ensure that young people are safe, happy and developing is one of the best jobs you can have. I’d recommend ORA to anyone and everyone!
