About the Role
The International Operations Manager is a broad, all-encompassing role. The purpose of this post is to support the University’s ability to recruit international students by managing operations of the global student recruitment agent network and to develop new and enhance existing networks and partnerships within established frameworks to raise the profile of the University around the world.
The primary focus of the strategy will be on the growing and managing a portfolio of partnerships with higher education institutions (HEIs) across the region to recruit fee-paying students to Cranfield. This will be achieved by maintaining a database of all formal and informal partnerships across the university; learning from successful partnerships and identifying new opportunities to exploit these insights. Our academic staff play a key role in developing relationships with their counterparts and therefore, you will work also closely with colleagues to co-ordinate such initiatives in the region.
You will also manage the activities of regionally based contractors; develop strong relationships with our global marketing agencies.
You will proactively develop and manage a wide range of key internal and external relationships, devising and delivering partnership activities, including managing complex inward and outward visits for senior colleagues, VIPs, agents, and international student visitors.
To be successful in this post you will be able to demonstrate you have prior experience in international student recruitment and that you know how to service our marketing partners globally. You will work with International Development Managers to attract high quality global marketing partners to grow the network to recruit students from a range of markets. You will contribute to the University’s innovative and effective internationalisation strategy, raising its international brand and profile and be a key member of the team responsible for the achievement of the University’s targets for international student recruitment.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, you will have excellent communication skills and will be comfortable identifying, researching, and building relationships across a range of stakeholders including agents, Government organisations, partners, alumni and sponsorship bodies. You will be experienced in higher education international student recruitment, and you should be used to working to meet tight deadlines in a pressurised customer focussed environment.
