The opportunity

The first designated University of Sanctuary in Wales, Cardiff Metropolitan University has a longstanding commitment to fostering peace-building and intercultural understanding through education, cultural diplomacy and civic activity.

As a result of the Russian aggression in Ukraine, the University has initiated its Support for Ukraine Project. The Project is underpinned by a fund of £400,000 set aside by the University to be used flexibly to support Ukrainian individuals, groups/teams and higher education institutions to continue to learn, teach, research and develop during this difficult period.

This post will coordinate delivery of the Support for Ukraine Project activities with our Ukrainian partner institutions, in particular H.S Sovoroda Kharkhiv National Pedagogical University (Skovoroda University); and with individual staff and students, and groups/teams seeking educational, research and/or sporting sanctuary at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

The role focuses on two main areas within the Support for Ukraine Project:

  • liaison work with partner and twin institutions in Ukraine to support their activity during the conflict;
  • facilitating the continued learning and development of Ukrainian staff, students and sportspeople who are seeking sanctuary at Cardiff Metropolitan University, in those cases where this has been agreed with the Vice-Chancellor.

What we are looking for

Our ideal candidate will have a good understanding of issues facing Ukrainians due to current geopolitical conflict, in UK and in Ukraine, plus effective knowledge of UK and Welsh Higher Education contexts.

You will have excellent written and spoken communication skills in English; ability to tailor communications to diverse audiences; ability to break down and convey complex information.

You will possess the skills to manage complex projects across multiple internal and external functions and stakeholders, as well as the ability to identify, develop and improve systems, processes & procedures.
