The University of Plymouth has a sound reputation in establishing and maintaining educational collaborations which are valuable for both partners and students.  A University ambition is to maximise its current partnerships through development of its existing partnership network, both in the UK and overseas. 

Through Academic Partnerships, the University has a strong partnership network across the UK and overseas, enabling students to achieve a University of Plymouth degree without having to study at the Plymouth campus.  Academic Partnerships is looking to enhance its administrative structure by drawing together a multi-skilled team to support these functions, meeting the aims and objectives of Academic Partnerships.

This is an exciting chance to be part of a progressive and cutting-edge University in a beautiful location, where you can really make a difference.

The post sits in the Partnerships Operations team which administers both UK and international partnerships.  You will act as a main point of contact for specific UK partner(s), ensuring there is cohesion with programme administration and quality assurance, aligned with the University’s regulations, policies and processes.

Please note that annual leave may be restricted during peak periods in the academic year.

Due to the volume of data and information you need to manage, it is essential that you have good attention to detail with high levels of accuracy.  You will also need to have excellent IT skills, including confidence in using complex databases or a student record system.

You will also need to be reliable and possess effective communication skills and having experience of dealing with organisations in partnerships would be beneficial.

Please demonstrate how you meet the essential criteria outlined in the knowledge, qualifications, training and experience elements of the job description in your supporting statement.
