Due to continuing expansion, Bright World Guardianships is looking for a new member of staff to join the existing team who run our Guardianship Programme and manage holiday arrangements for international students studying in UK boarding schools.
Bright World was established in 2000 and is an Education Agency and the UK's leading Guardianship Organisation for international students, based in the village of Hurstpierpoint, near Brighton. We are a medium-sized and growing company where you can feel like a big fish in a small pond and make a huge difference.
The successful candidate will be managing the administration for a number of overseas students who are studying at UK boarding schools. This involves liaising with their overseas agents and parents prior to arrival and throughout the year. You will also be organising short homestays for them in their school holidays, liaising with private boarding schools on the arrangements being made and completing PR visits to our partner schools.
Travel requirements and out of hours’ commitment:
UK travel will be required to visit schools on our behalf. The successful candidate will be required to share responsibility for holding the 24/7 emergency telephone on a rota basis. This means that on some evenings and weekends at peak times, you will be required to work in terms of taking emergency calls and dealing with them outside of the office.

The number of UK Boarding Schools and important Industry Associations attending our Company Conference last week was testament to how highly thought of Bright World Guardianships is. We have had some wonderful feedback at how impressed our guests were with the amount we invest in Child Protection and Safeguarding. It is so important to bring the whole company together once each year to share experiences and obtain important Child Protection Training. I believe it really sets Bright World apart and enables us to strive to be the best in UK guardianship' Lana Foster, Bright World Managing Director
The Bright World Company Conference 2018 was a resounding success. So many of our close partner schools and agents took the time to join us. We all came away feeling very positive about the Guardianship industry and the work that schools and Bright World do together to keep children safe.
