Student Connector - Cape Town Rosebank

Date Job Posted: 02-Apr-2019

Location: Cape Town (Rosebank)

Job description


Some of the phrases people use to describe you: the life of the party, a social butterfly, the people encyclopedia, a born storyteller. Your student-at-heart way is contagious. You encourage people to meet, get inspired and have fun. And you do all this, just by being you. As a true connector you turn our diverse culture of students into a cohesive community.

Your role is to open the door to the start of something beautiful – a new friendship, collaboration or unforgettable experience. You build relationships and partnerships. You create stories and adventures. You make everyone who steps through our doors feel like a part of The CampusKey family. You’re also a bit of a miracle worker and crisis manager. If an artist, photographer or DJ pulls out of an event last minute, all you have to do is scroll through your phone contacts (or your Facebook friends) to find an even better replacement.

    • Manage and plan the annual welcome programme for the students checking-in;
    • Implement the CampusKey community guidelines with goal of optimizing student experience;
    • Resolve student complaints, issue fines and prepare recommendation for termination of accommodation when warranted;
    • Conduct quality-control building walk-throughs to note immediate issues, pre-empt potential future issues, and identify areas for improvement;
  • Manage the Mentor Programme;

    • Manage, plan and execute the campus marketing strategy;

  • The opportunity to work at a dynamic, young, national and fast growing company who sets the tone for the student accommodation hospitality industry;
