Business Partner

Fixed-term until 01/02/19 (Maternity Cover)

The Business Partner team is an essential link between a cluster of central service teams (Marketing, Communications, Admissions and UK Recruitment and Development and Alumni Relations) and the University's academic faculties.

Business Partners provide a critical function in understanding, interpreting and conveying business objectives across key stakeholder groups and offering advice and guidance accordingly. This work supports the planning and delivery of the University’s recruitment, reputation and retention activities, ensuring opportunities are capitalised upon and effectiveness maximised.

This role will take responsibility for supporting one of our four academic faculties. You will need to be collaborative and agile in your approach, able to build relationships quickly across key stakeholder groups. You will devote much of your time to understanding the needs, priorities and concerns of your faculty, then working with colleagues in central service teams to translate this into service improvements and effective marketing, recruitment and communications outputs, helping to promote the University's strengths and ambitions.

You will have significant experience in building strong working relationships and influencing senior stakeholders, as well as a strong track record of project managing diverse teams across functional boundaries and resolving complex issues. Experience of working in marketing, recruitment or communications is desirable.

You will be expected to work with a wide range of stakeholders in the faculty as well as colleagues across central service teams. You will develop an in-depth knowledge of your area; build respectful and trusting relationships; identify creative solutions to issues as they arise; share information to add value to business as usual; and help to refine and design programmes of profile raising and recruitment activity.
