Applications are invited to the role of Senior Partnership Manager (East Asia) in UCL’s Global Engagement Office (GEO). This is an exciting time to be part of GEO – under the leadership of the Vice Provost (International), Dr Dame Nicola Brewer, GEO is at the heart of delivering the University’s Global Engagement Strategy (GES), which launched in 2015. The GES sets out a global vision for UCL with the GEO working at its core across UCL Faculties to increase the University’s global impact, particularly through development of ‘partnerships of equivalence’.

The post holder will proactively lead the management and development of ‘partnerships of equivalence’ for UCL in East Asia; be a source of expertise on this region; and promote the services GEO can offer to the academic community facilitating their regional partnerships. The post holder will also lead on strengthening networks and support for academics collaborating in this region. The post is based in London but there will be some overseas travel.

This role is likely to appeal to someone with a strong interest in the internationalisation of higher education and who is excited to take on a challenging and rewarding post. The successful candidate will marshal a dedicated budget to play a major role in directing and advancing UCL’s strategy in the region. They will thrive on working in a fast-paced team in a rapidly changing external environment. To help achieve this, the role benefits from excellent administrative support.

This post is a maternity cover post available for 12 months.

A good undergraduate degree is required. This role also requires an individual who has a broad knowledge of issues relating to the internationalisation of higher education and experience of developing successful international partnerships. They will need to have experience of working independently and proactively to set up and manage complex projects or programmes. Excellent interpersonal skills, both written and oral are essential.

Experience of working in East Asia is desirable, but not essential – applications will be considered from candidates with transferable skills and the ability to upskill quickly in the role on relevant regional knowledge.
