The Summer School, Executive and International (SSEI) Programmes Unit is a highly successful and commercially driven team that delivers LSE’s open enrolment short courses and distance learning degree programmes:
The LSE Summer School is recognised as a global leader, and is one of the top two Summer School programmes in the world measured by student enrolments, attracting over 6,000 participants annually who study on the LSE campus over an intensive 12 week period. 2018 will also be the programmes 30th anniversary, making it one of the most well-established summer schools in the world. Celebrating this milestone will be a significant part of the role during its first year.
The University of London International Programme (UoLIP) was the originator of distance learning more than a century ago. In excess of 20,000 students across nearly 40 countries are currently studying LSE designed degrees either through distance learning or accredited organisations. The programme is steeped in history, boasting numerous notable alumni including Nobel Prize winners and a number of world leaders.
The Unit is also responsible for executive education and postgraduate level courses teaching social science research methods.
The Events and Student Experience Manager is a member of the newly formed Communications and Student Experience team, reporting to the Head of Communications and Student Experience.
We are looking for a motivated and outgoing person with previous student experience and/or events/conference experience who is organised, creative and an excellent communicator. Previous experience of organising and managing large scale events for 1,000+ people is highly desirable. This is a commercially driven role where excellent organisation skills and the ability to negotiate and manage a budget are a key success factor. The successful candidate will be able to operate seamlessly behind the scenes to deliver a high quality social and personal development experience to students whilst, in turn, being confident in dealing with student queries on a face-to-face basis. Experience of the higher education sector is desirable but not essential.
We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.
