Guardian Consultant

OPDS is a small educational consultancy helping students from overseas to gain the most from their time here in the UK. We were formed in 1996 and operate from Old Coulsdon. We work closely with a company in Beijing who recommend many Chinese students to us for placement in UK boarding schools.

We now have a vacancy for a Mandarin speaking person to help us move the business forward.

It is essential that you have some familiarity with computers and that you are comfortable working with school staff, students and their parents. A high degree of self organisation with strong communication skills is required.

This team oriented job, reporting to the Managing Director, is part-time, with some working from home.
Precise hours and starting pay by arrangement.
