About us

UCL Global Engagement (GE) helps put UCL’s knowledge to work in the world, supporting our Faculties to deliver impact for the greater good, through global partnerships.

GE comprises a high-performing team of professionals with experience in providing high quality global research and education support to academics, expertise in global partnership development and management, as well as expertise in geo-political analysis, global communications, strategic planning and operations.

We are part of the Office of the UCL Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement) – RIGE – which brings together a range of functions, services and resources for the UCL community and external partners. RIGE is dedicated to supporting people, crossing boundaries and enabling responsible impact – for the greater good, locally, nationally and internationally.

About the role

Strategic Global Initiatives Managers (SGIM) manage a suite of ongoing programmes and fixed-duration projects that seek to better enable our Faculties’ global engagement and to further improve supporting mechanisms for this across the institution.

The programmes and projects overseen by SGIMs are often cross-regional and/or cross-functional, with stakeholders drawn from across UCL’s Faculties and Professional Services departments. The SGIMs, therefore, work closely with colleagues within GE and RIGE as well as the broader UCL community.

As well as working on cross-regional programmes and projects, SGIMs also work closely alongside Senior Global Engagement Managers within GE to support major new Faculty initiatives, complex projects and to provide additional support for regional activities where needed.

SGIMs lead on developing proposals, organising consultations, designing processes, preparing business cases, convening working groups, advising Faculties on cross-regional global opportunities and ensuring that outputs from programmes and projects are implemented effectively.

SGIMs require a deep understanding of international higher education and need to develop an awareness of the specific contexts of UCL and our Faculties, looking for opportunities to make continuous improvements to the support on offer to the UCL community from Global Engagement. To that end, SGIMs pro-actively establish and nurture strong working relationships across UCL and with key external organisations.

The portfolio of programmes and projects overseen by SGIMs will change over time to reflect UCL, Faculty and GE priorities. New programmes and projects will be agreed with GE Leadership Team.

This role is eligible for hybrid working with a minimum of 40% on site presence. Wednesday are fixed team collaboration days when you'll be expected to attend the office in person.

There are two Strategic Global Initiatives Managers within GE, with one position currently vacant.

About you

The SGIM role is best suited to candidates who are highly organised, creative and effective communicators with a track record of project management in an international context.

Given the complexity and novelty of the projects that an SGIM works on, candidates will need a solid grounding in global higher education policy, practice and partnerships. Likewise, the capacity to quickly develop a working knowledge of a new area will be an advantage, as will an openness towards working on new projects.
