About Open Sky International

Open Sky International is looking for a highly effective Admissions Officer to play a key role in our school in Boulogne-Billancourt, on the outskirts of Paris. Our vision is to provide a bilingual English/French education of excellence, and our academic curriculum is built on the strongest aspects of a range of international programmes and teaching and learning methodologies. From the outset, we have high expectations of students and our curriculum is rigorous, broad and engaging. Classes are small and students are courteous, hardworking and motivated. We are a fully international school, welcoming French and expatriate families, and we are proud of our multicultural school community.

Our school is still relatively young and is the first international school opened by OSI, an ambitious and innovative new education group based in Paris. Other OSI schools have recently opened in Egypt and Morocco and will open in other locations internationally over the next five years.

We now require an Admissions Officer, who will be responsible to the school’s owners and Headteacher for all aspects of the student recruitment and admissions process and will act as our ambassador with prospective students and their families. This position is an exciting opportunity for a proactive candidate with initiative and drive.

To join us, you’ll need previous relevant experience in school admissions or a similar sales-orientated role and excellent IT and organisational skills. Previous experience within a school setting is desirable, however your potential to work within our team is more important.

The successful candidate will also:

  • Have a suitable qualification in a relevant discipline, or recent experience in an related field.
  • Have the confidence, knowledge and ability to develop and maintain a range of school admissions systems.
  • Offer a first-class customer service experience to all stakeholders in a proactive and target-driven manner.

  • Consider themselves as members of a team and always aim to work collaboratively.
  • Have excellent interpersonal skills. You will instil confidence within the school community, by adopting a tactful, confidential and professional approach when liaising with students, parents, businesses, colleagues and outside agencies.
  • Have very effective written and spoken communication skills, and be fluent in both French and English.
  • Maintain at all times high standards of professional behaviour towards colleagues, students and parents and be a positive role model for students.
  • Promote the wider aspirations and values of the school.
