About us and the role
Coventry University Group includes one of the UK's leading Higher Education Institutions. Visionary leadership, strong financial management and an entrepreneurial approach underpin our performance and ensure that we are developing a university that is fit for the future.
Coventry University Group has been an active partner in a number of global networks for many years and has collaborated with many international partners. As part of our ambitious growth strategy and our plans for future developments around education, research and innovation we are committed to growing our international activities further.

The post holder will also support the administration of effective relationships with government officials and will work to build relevant links internally within the University Group.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our team in the Singapore Hub and make your mark in an innovative and forward thinking organisation.
