Do you have extensive knowledge in starting and growing businesses? Could you assist in the development of international teaching programmes as we expand our offering world-wide?

WMG is a global venture and provides innovative solutions to industry, having an international reputation supporting some of the most advanced research, development and education programmes in the world. Our entrepreneurship programmes have grown rapidly in recent years and are in demand worldwide by prospective partners. In 2018 we will open our own Incubator.

We have recently launched a new Master's Degree by Research (MRes), to support students to design, develop and run an innovation driven globally orientated business. This role is to drive this and other existing University Entrepreneurship Programme to greater levels of success.

We are seeking a talented and driven individual, with excellent business transformation and consultancy skills, to increase capacity in the areas of business start-up, transformation and scale-up. Working across a wide student base, including MSc students and those on Professional and Executive development programmes, you will need to be credible and knowledgeable in your subject matter and be able to foster debate and develop concepts. The role will also involve working with SMEs to enhance student learning.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your own professional profile and work as part of an existing team. You may also have the opportunity to travel to support our overseas partners.

Applicants with experience gained within a commercial environment are strongly encouraged to apply. In return we will provide you with a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
