Your role

As a BDM at QA Higher Education you will be responsible for the business development of new and existing student recruitment channels, with a specific focus on developing partnerships with referral organisations. The role will include ensuring enrolment targets are delivered and marketing strategies developed for Home and EU recruitment.

As part of our commitment to you, we provide a platform for you to grow with exposure to multiple platforms and the opportunity to work on a variety of initiatives with the team.

Your team

You will be part of an enthusiastic team, working in a fast-paced but fun environment where being a team player is essential.

Based in London, you will work closely with the Senior Regional Manager and International Officers. You will also be working alongside the marketing teams to ensure successful and timely completion of all tasks. Our team is located in London, but travel to client sites will be required.

Package and benefits

We are offering a competitive financial package, Private Pension as well as 25 days holiday, 2 days paid charity work each year for a charity of your choice, 3 days of additional training from QA’s very own course selection (1,200 to be precise) and a cycle to work scheme.

You will be given some clients to initially manage as you build your pipeline, so excellent account management skills are also needed.

Ideally you will have proven experience within both telephone and face to face client meetings while also being able to provide examples of when you have used your sales flair.

How to apply


When you’ve found the role you want, click the ‘Apply’ button to open the application form. We’ll ask you to upload your CV, and to enter some personal information and provide additional supporting information depending on the role. Remember, this is your time to shine, so please ensure that anything you would like us to be aware of is included in your application. Once you’ve applied, you will be sent a password to your own private account area where you’re able to keep track of the current status of your application(s), as well as read all of the previous email communications, and action requests that have been sent to you.


Once we’ve reviewed your application, a member of the Talent Acquisition team will be in contact with an update on your application. If your application is being progressed, a telephone interview will be scheduled with the Talent Acquisition team to discuss the opportunity, your skills and experience – this is also a great time for you to ask any questions that are important to you. The next stage of the process will then vary depending on the role, division or level you’re applying for, however this may involve 2-3 stages, including technical, HR or competency questions, or might ask you to complete an online work-style assessment as part of your application. Our Talent Acquisition team will explain exactly what the interview and assessment process will be.


If you’re successful and an offer is made to you, we will make the verbal offer and work with you to agree a provisional start date. Your Talent Acquisition Consultant will keep in touch with you, and answer any questions you have. They’ll also support you with any steps involved to confirm your offer. The formal offer paperwork will be sent to you by our People Team, along with any requests for any additional information required.

Background Checks

We take professional and/or educational reference checks on all of our employees so you will be asked to provide this information when returning your contract. For these checks, we do allow people to start with us whilst the checks are in process, however please do note that employment with QA is based on satisfactory references.

For some roles within the business, we also carry out additional checks such as DBS or DV Clearance, depending on the role or division you will be working in (it will be made clear at the beginning of the recruitment process if additional checks will be part of the offer for the role you’re applying for) – for some of these additional checks, it is important that these are completed prior to you joining QA.


Welcome to QA! Prior to joining you should have all the information you need to get started on day one and are likely to have a 'Buddy' assigned to you who will help and guide you during your first few weeks here. Your line manager will develop a personal induction plan for you, as well as ensuring that you also go through the company induction so you have a full understanding not just of your role but also of QA as a whole.
