Admissions Counselor & Exito Coordinator
Northwestern College seeks an enthusiastic, bilingual bridge-builder to work as a member of the admissions team. Responsibilities include managing a recruitment portfolio (students and territory) and serving as a resource to members of the admissions team who are recruiting Hispanic students (e.g., liaising with recruits’ Spanish-speaking family members). The admissions counselor & éxito (success) coordinator will also initiate and implement events and programming that connect Northwestern College to members of the Hispanic community for mutually beneficial relationships and the exchange of information, ideas and insights on higher education value and accessibility.
Qualified applicants will be organized, motivated self-starters with a love for Christian higher education and an intimate connection to Hispanic culture and communities. A bachelor’s degree and the ability to communicate fluently in both Spanish and English are required. In addition, applicants must demonstrate strong written and verbal communication and have solid presentation skills. The successful candidate will also exhibit our Team Red values (relational, energized, driven).
The position is full-time and begins in June 2022.
The successful candidate will have an authentic Christian faith and support the college’s mission and identity as expressed in our Vision for Learning, Vision for Diversity and Statement of Christian Identity. Northwestern identifies as Reformed in commitment, evangelical in engagement and ecumenical in spirit. We view these Christian theological perspectives as complementary and draw from the strengths of each perspective in fulfilling our mission.
Northwestern seeks to more fully reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the body of Christ in its faculty, staff, administration and students. Women and candidates from historically underrepresented groups are enthusiastically encouraged to apply. Review of applications will begin immediately until the position is filled.
