Empowering students to unlock their potential through personalised education.
What this role is responsible for
Strategy Consultants are exemplars of Crimson Education’s philosophy dedicated to making a difference in students’ lives, helping bridge gaps between present and future goals by personalising blueprints that will become the basis of all academic, extracurricular and personal development.
Your task as a Strategy Consultant is to work closely with students and their other Crimson tutors, mentors and consultants. Primary client-facing responsibilities include driving progress through long-term roadmaps, offering a perspective into UK higher education, and mentoring through the candidacy building and application processes.
Regarding application work, Strategy Consultants assist in developing students’ narratives, including the thematic direction of application essays. Students will have additional direct support from Application Mentors who own the responsibilities of essay consultation (brainstorms, revisions) and interview preparation.
With each case that one oversees in this role, a Strategy Consultant is entrusted with the highest level of autonomy and accountability. Strategy Consultants are thus held to the highest standards of integrity; maintain utmost responsibility in managing students’ goals and plans, and contribute to the professional development of the self and the team.
