Cranfield Management Development Limited (CMDL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cranfield University. We already have a prestigious international portfolio but our strong presence in the Middle East has recently begun to expand with the winning of several exciting contracts, including the delivery of leadership development for the 2022 World Cup Committee.
CMDL largely supports a portfolio of customised and open enrolment executive programmes offered through Cranfield Executive Development (CED). This includes partnering and collaboration with Cranfield’s School of Management Faculty and Administrative departments.
Our consequent steep growth trajectory requires us to source a talented individual to support the management and execution of these programmes in the Middle East region, while also helping us to secure further business and maintain our growth.
Our customers are both external (delegates and their client sponsors) and internal (academic staff, associates, and other Executive Development Directors & colleagues). This role will provide robust execution of learning interventions that delight client sponsors and delegates alike. The successful applicant will also help win new business, and work with clients to identify new opportunities.
To support this work we are currently looking to recruit several credible, influential and proactive individuals who relish the opportunity to bring world-class development interventions to global clients who have a base in the Middle East.
The role offers the opportunity to work internationally across a range of sectors. Cranfield is committed to being client-focussed and putting the client at the heart of everything we do. This brings successful applicants the opportunity to work in a variety of ways with a wide range of organisations, sectors, and individuals.
To be successful in this role you will require previous experience of programme management and execution, key account management, balancing of multiple programmes and priorities, and success in winning new business through proposal writing and pitching.
It is essential that the post-holder has a deep understanding of Middle Eastern culture, is strongly literate and numerate, can think on their feet, has the resilience to work independently, and has the credibility to influence senior executives and nurture relationships.
