About the Opportunity:

Possible location placements include: London, England; Dublin, Ireland; Thessaloniki, Greece; and Rome, Italy

Position Dates: July-December 2021

The Program is a unique opportunity for first-year students accepted for Spring Admission to Northeastern University. Students study at one of our partner institutions during the Fall semester and enter Northeastern University in the Spring. Partner universities provide academic courses to the participants while staff provide on-site leadership and support services.

We are hiring for several International Coordinator positions for each program location. The on-site staff support the physical, emotional, social, and academic needs of first-year students. In addition to supporting staff at the host institution, these staff members focus on creating positive and valuable experiential learning for students in their academic coursework, host city, and student residences. International Coordinators work in staff teams and are supervised by an on-site professional staff member. Site staff enthusiastically embody the mission and values of the Program and Northeastern University while working and living in close proximity to first-year students.

This position is a short-term commitment with full workdays internationally for the Fall 2021 semester (dates vary by location). This on-site position also requires virtual attendance during a mandatory training period beginning July 2021. This is an in-person position that requires site staff to live in the student accommodation with students during the fall 2021 semester which runs from August – December 2021.

The International Coordinators are responsible for supporting facets of the Program for one of our locations.


Position responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

• Coordinate evening and weekend student programs and excursions
• Encourage student academic success, respond to student concerns and connect students to on-site academic, medical and mental health resources
• Monitor student behavioral policies and protocols, upholding a high standard of student conduct
• Maintain the safety and well-being of the participants by serving in a 24/7 on-call rotation and conducting regular monitoring of student residences

International Coordinators will work collaboratively to ensure students’ safety and well-being and contribute to the development and overall success of the program. Responsibilities may vary based on site placement.

Why should you apply?

• Gain essential experience planning events, managing students in large quantities, and supporting their academic success
• Apply previous experience living, working, studying, or volunteering abroad
• Ability to demonstrate and further develop administrative skills, interpersonal communication, and cross-cultural awareness in an international context
• Work alongside a robust network of passionate and supportive staff and faculty
• Play a role in creating unforgettable experiences for first-year college students


These highly demanding positions require a significant amount of patience, flexibility, assertiveness, diplomacy, self-initiative, as well as substantial experience living abroad and an ability to excel under challenging conditions while efficiently accomplishing tasks in a fast-paced environment.

• Bachelor’s Degree required
• Master’s Degree preferred in relevant fields such as Higher Education, International Education or Student Development
• 1-2 years of demonstrated student service experience or higher education experience in a residence life or student affairs capacity, which includes experience living with or working with high school or undergraduate students (in residence life, student affairs, camp counselor, or related role)
