This is an exciting opportunity to join the Global Engagement team under the academic leadership of the Vice Provost (Research, Innovation and Global Engagement). UCL Global Engagement (GE) helps put UCL’s knowledge to work in the world, supporting Faculties to deliver impact for the greater good, through global partnerships for change.
About the role
Global Engagement Managers (GEMs) play a vital role within GE, providing high quality support to Senior Global Engagement Managers (SGEMs) and Strategic Global Initiatives Managers (SGIMs) within the team. GEMs ensure that GE projects and programmes overseen by SGEMs and SGIMs are delivered to high standards, managing the general operations of these activities. Relationship building and partnership management is a core function of GE. In this capacity, GEMs work directly with external partner organisations, acting as an important regular contact point and ensuring that the relationship is managed effectively, tactfully and responsively. GEMs work with counterparts at the partner to support the implementation of existing and new activities. GEMs also provide practical assistance and insights to SGEMs and SGIMs to help develop new activities. GEMs also provide first line operational advice and practical support directly to Faculties in order to facilitate their global engagement. GEMs work closely with SGEMs in particular to develop their regional knowledge and understanding of the various contexts in which UCL engages internationally. GEMs also support the day-to-day- activities of GE through detailed desk based research, accurate record keeping and through their high quality management of meetings, events, visits and projects. Please note that we have 4 vacancies to recruit for. If you have any questions regarding the role, please contact Conor Rickford on .
You will have some experience of developing international partnerships, ideally within the higher education, research, innovation, governmental or policy areas. These sectors may be the most immediately relevant to the role but candidates with transferable skills from other sectors are encouraged to apply. You may already have practical experience and awareness of internationalisation of higher education and be looking to deepen this. Conversely, you may be interested in developing your experiences and knowledge in this area for the first time. You will have a track record of supporting numerous complex projects simultaneously, keeping them on track independently while still working as part of a team. Your written work, interpersonal and analytical skills will be of a high standard already but the role will allow you significant opportunities to refine these. You will be comfortable operating in a highly international environment, working across cultures and communicating with the broadest possible range of internal and external stakeholders.
