Position Description

The academic advisor role within the Educational Programs team plays a critical role in successfully implementing the scholarship program in the AMR region.


You will provide integrated academic advisement, coaching and consultation to a designated group of SABIC sponsored students; this may include students at the pre-college (i.e. Foundation Year), undergraduate, and/or graduate level. You will partner with approximately 15 universities to support your students as they follow rigorous degree plans, ensuring they graduate on time and that the educational investment made by SABIC is maximized. All of our students are originally from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and therefore require your support in matters of academic and cultural adjustment. In addition to academic advising, you will find creative ways to connect your student to SABIC (E.g. internships, seminars, conferences, events, etc.), and foster students' professional development. We are looking for outgoing and compassionate individuals who can work in a fast paced and changing environment. The successful Academic Advisor is passionate about working with international students and can juggle the multiple demands of this role. We offer the right candidate a challenging position with the opportunity to work on a global team doing work that makes an impact.
