Meet the School and College Team

Jamie Bradford

School and College Liaison and Enquiries Manager

I have had the pleasure of working at DMU for 14 years undertaking a variety of roles in home and international student recruitment. I started out as a Student Advisor, specifically focussed on supporting our local network of FE colleges before moving into a supervisory role leading our operational school and college liaison activity.

Between 2010 and 2012 I spent an exciting two years as the Senior International Officer responsible for South East Asia and enjoyed recruitment visits to Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.

If you are planning any exotic travels I can heartily recommend all of these locations.I became a father in 2012 and returned to a UK role as School and College Liaison and Enquiries Manager where I lead all school and college activity for year 11 students and above alongside the team looking after all incoming course enquiries. The role is busy and varied with the sector changing dynamically year to year and DMU ever investing and proactively moving forward.

I am lucky to lead a team of natural communicators who all genuinely love their face-to-face work with school and college students. Our mission is to inspire, to inform and to engage and we look forward to working with yourself and your students in the future.

I am responsible for the planning and delivery of activities and visits for schools and colleges within Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Lincolnshire.

A central part of my role is to ensure that students are aware of all the opportunities within higher education that are available to them. I thoroughly enjoyed my university experience and the opportunities that a university degree has afforded me.

Since I graduated in 2009 with a degree in foreign languages, I have worked primarily within the field of education; I am passionate about promoting the benefits of higher education.
