Director of Marketing and Communications

Brac University

Competitive Salary and Benefits

An exciting opportunity to make a substantial difference.

Under new leadership Brac University is seeking to move well beyond being one of the leading universities in Bangladesh and position itself as one of Asia’s leading international universities. To support this aim we are seeking a dynamic and experienced individual with the ability to reposition the University brand on the international stage. If you are a strategic marketeer with the skills and experience to make this happen we look forward to hearing from you? If you have discounted Bangladesh in the past, then think again. One of the fastest growing economies in the world Bangladesh is consistently outperforming its long-term growth targets. A rapidly diversifying economy is being powered by a large and talented younger generation, keen to make the most of emerging opportunities. Universities like Brac are playing an integral role in facilitating the transition to a knowledge-based economy. If you relish the challenge of building the university’s communication processes with a large range of domestic and international stakeholders you will thrive in this role.

Although only eighteen years old, Brac University has quickly established itself as Bangladesh’s leading private university. We now seek to become a high performing international university by undertaking impactful research, delivering teaching excellence and being a leader in student experience. We are proud of our association with BRAC, the world’s largest NGO and share its commitment to upholding human values and supporting sustainable development.  You will enable the University to clearly communicate its strategic direction on an international stage.  You will also have built a high performing marketing and communications team that delivers state of the art digital and physical communication platforms.

You will be recognized as a strong marketing and communications professional with plenty of energy and a proven track record of successfully positioning major brands across the entire marketing mix. Understanding of the HE sector will be beneficial although not essential. Demonstration of strategic capabilities and tangible evidence of achieving meaningful results at a senior level will be necessary. Furthermore, evidence of understanding the needs of a diverse stakeholder group and being able to respond appropriately is required.

Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work with a diverse group of international colleagues and external stakeholders is essential. Experience of undertaking previous international assignments would be beneficial.  

Interested parties are invited to download a copy of the candidate prospectus and follow the application process. Korn Ferry International will be supporting the University to select the ideal candidate.  Please send  your CV to  Pankaj.Goswami@kornferry.com.
