Coventry University Online

GBP 45,378 - GBP 54,021 per annum

Eligible for access to discretionary bonus scheme of up to 10%

Full-time, Permanent       

Coventry University has seen huge global successes in recent years: Gold winner in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017, The Complete University Guides' UK Top New University 2018, Times Higher Education University of the Year for Student Experience 2019, and now the 15th best University in The Guardian University Guide 2020.

It doesn't stop here. Coventry University has taken its next big step, this time into the digital world of online distance learning. Working with UK-based Future Learn, which has over eight million learners worldwide on its collaborative learning platform, the University is developing world-leading degree programmes, accessible to thousands of new distance learners across the globe.

This post is an exciting opportunity for an experienced distance learning specialist to join an innovative and growing start-up company, dedicated to developing and delivering cutting-edge online degree courses.

You will have demonstrable experience of leading teams in the production of online content at scale and in the use of educational technologies. Your experience may come from a range of backgrounds including editorial, instructional or learning design, and multimedia production.

Performing cross-functionally at all levels within the Online business, you will work to support the development and delivery of industry-leading marketing and course content. Liaising closely with Senior Project Managers, a significant part of your role will be to ensure ambitious publishing plans are delivered to schedule on the platform and that all content is accurate. You will build and maintain excellent working relationships with our third party learning platform provider, and be responsible for acting as a key communication conduit between organisations. 

The stimulating projects that you support will be accessible to an audience of hundreds of thousands across the world and will have a high degree of visibility within the Coventry University Group and wider Higher Education sector.

Please apply online via the application form. CVs will not be accepted.
