Who are we?



EDMUNDO – A World of Education is an educational counselling service developed by EDUCATIVA.



Throughout the past 8 years we have helped over 3,500 students enrol in bachelor and master international programmes. In our activities, we rely on our vast knowledge of the international education systems, a large network of international university contacts, our links with Romanian international students and alumni of foreign universities and also our past experience of managing youth targeted events and activities.


We are a very young and dynamic team (average age is 25) in permanent pursuit of more efficient ways of  working and developing our work environment.



The Opportunity


As the volume and complexity of our activity increases every year, we are now looking for very enthusiastic and  energetic young professionals to join our team in Bucharest and Iasi as EDUCATIONAL COUNSELLORS. The main goal of an Educational Counsellor is to help as many young Romanians as possible to pursue a suitable  academic program with one of our international higher education partners. His / her role will be to manage the individual application processes of our beneficiaries (high- school and university students).


If selected, you will work directly with the Counselling Department Management and will join an experienced team that includes 11 other Educational Counsellors. Prior to beginning your activity you will be thoroughly trained about the specifics of international education systems, the variety of academic options, requirements and procedures, costs & financing etc., as well as about tips and tricks for being a performer in  your activity. You will also receive constant support from the more experienced members of the team.



Your Role*


  • Giving information and counselling related to interested students about their study abroad opportunities;
  • Managing applicants’ personal information and efficiently tracking their specific status within the application process;
  • Preparing and reviewing all documentation needed for the final admission file of the applicants;
  • Organizing information seminars regarding study abroad opportunities for potential applicants and their parents;
  • Organizing and managing English language test sessions for the applicants.

*SMART objectives will be established together with the Counselling Department at the beginning of each year of  activity.

  • Developing specific competences in reviewing academic application files;
  • Basic know-how about the management of event organizing.


Our Requirements 


General outlook:


  • Self-motivated, ambitious and hard-working;
  • Positive-thinking, problem-solving mind-set (“glass half-full” kind of person);
  • Attention to details (very important, please consider it seriously);
  • Discipline to effectively assume responsibilities for tasks and meet the required deadlines.

 

Skills:


  • Very good fluency in English is a must; an English certificate is an advantage (minimum IELTS of 6.0, CAE min. B or equivalent);
  • Communication, analysis and synthesis abilities;
  • Effective management of personal tasks and time constraints;
  • Interpersonal skills;
  • Good knowledge of Microsoft Office package (Word, Excel, Outlook).

  • We expect that you commit yourself for a period of at least 14 months (August 2015 –September 2016) if everything goes well between us.


Experience: 

You can demonstrate initiative, ability and significant results in previous professional activities or personal projects relevant for your interests.



Education:


Ideally, you have already graduated from a bachelor program (maybe even from a master program). However, if you think you can manage all of the above, while still pursuing satisfactorily a degree, please apply and we’ll evaluate together the merits of the idea. 

Having studied abroad (even for a short period) is a distinctive advantage, but not a prerequisite.
