Job Description

If you are an outstanding individual who has first class relationship management skills and a track record in managing and developing partnerships to drive maximum value, this role is for you, offering the opportunity to be party of an ambitious and motivated team working to develop a globally renowned programme in a world famous institution. For the successful applicant it represents a career defining opportunity to make a significant impact for the LSE.

 

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, recognised a global leader and one of the top two Summer School programmes in the world
  • The University of London Programmes, with c.17,000 students across nearly 40 countries studying LSE designed degrees around the globe
  • An ambitious programme of campus based and online open enrolment executive courses, the primary channel for delivering LSE’s world class research to a business audience.

 

The programmes represent valuable revenue sources for the School, generating critical funds to invest in teaching and research activity. All our programmes operate in increasingly competitive markets.

 

This exciting role is a key player in the Unit, working within a target driven environment with responsibility for:

  • Delivering first-class relationship management to our existing University of London Programmes Teaching Centres, which maximise their potential
  • Establishing a framework which ensures the LSE provides a consistent and appropriate level of support to enable Teaching Centres to achieve their goals
  • Ensuring the LSE focusses our support and resources on the partnerships which deliver, or have the greatest potential to deliver, the largest impact for the School.

 

This role is focussed on developing our relationships with existing partners delivering the LSE’s University of London Programmes. You will need to be able to demonstrate the vision, business development and influencing skills to inspire existing partners to raise their level of ambition for their involvement in LSE programmes and commit their own resources in delivering this.

 

Our partners are spread across the world, and where possible we use technology to communicate with them. However, the nature of the role means the post holder must be prepared to undertake international travel from time to time.

 

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

 

The closing date for receipt of applications is Sunday 27th January 2019 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.
