Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

Working within the School Liaison & Partnership Team, this post will take a lead role in development, implementation and delivery of the established schools and colleges programme. The innovative programme of activity encourages progression in learning, raises aspirations for under-represented learners in Higher Education and contributes to success in UK undergraduate student recruitment.

Their creative and problem-solving approach will stand them in good stead for this busy and fulfilling role.

In return for your talents, we offer a competitive salary and benefits and the opportunity to work as part of a vibrant Marketing and Communications department.

This position is offered on a fixed-term basis until 10 August 2022, to cover the maternity leave of an established member of staff.
