    We require an experienced and skilled ELT practitioner to manage and develop short courses and summer programmes as part of our Global Opportunities team.


    The Global Opportunities team is part of the International Recruitment, Partnerships and Mobility team in the External Relations Directorate and manages the University's portfolio of international student mobility partners and programmes; bespoke short courses for students and staff of partner universities overseas; and open access summer schools for students from around the world. These programmes aim to build new international relationships and enhance existing relationships with key University partners across the globe and support University strategy.

    The team is growing in-line with the University's ambitious new strategy to rapidly expand its potential to generate new income streams and develop substantive global partnerships aligned to the emergent new University Strategy. The IRPM team is therefore tasked with increasing the visibility of the University of York to global audiences, including partner international universities, international academic networks and other international research and teaching partnerships.

You will take responsibility for all aspects of short programme development and delivery. This will include business development, course design and the recruitment and management of teams of tutors and visiting lecturers.

    You will also be part of the business development and marketing team responsible for building sustainable international relationships with partner universities, helping to create a long-term business plan based on market intelligence.
