This is an exciting time to join the University of Southampton. We have a global reputation for delivering world-class education, research and enterprise that makes a real impact on society’s biggest challenges, and our new international strategic plan sets out our global recruitment, partnership and mobility ambitions over the next decade.

The Role 

The International Partner Agreements Manager will provide specialist expertise and support to the International Office and broader Global Recruitment and Admissions Department on a variety of legal agreements. This will include the issuing and negotiation of agreements for agents, relevant international partnerships including study abroad, student exchange, agent and co-sponsorship arrangements for example, to enable the work of the international function and that of Faculties undertaking international activity. This role will also determine process flows that efficiently navigate the institution’s governance and legal structures, ensuring appropriate sign off where necessary and the use of Legal Services approved templates to support standardisation of approaches wherever possible.  

About You

You will bring substantial experience of drafting, preparing and negotiating legal agreements within an international setting, preferably within a higher education environment. You will also be able to demonstrate outstanding attention to detail, the ability to proactively work with colleagues in other work areas to achieve outcomes, and strong intercultural awareness. 

What we can offer you 

We offer some fantastic benefits including generous annual leave (plus additional closure days and bank holidays), company pension scheme, discounted private healthcare and dental, company sick pay, excellent family leave arrangements, a wide variety of on and off-campus arts and culture facilities and access to a range of staff discounts and offers at local shops, restaurants and service providers.   

We are also committed to building an inclusive and diverse culture at the University and creating an environment where people can balance successful careers with their commitments and interests outside of work. Our flexible working practices, including a hybrid working model where employees can split their working time between the office and home, support our belief that this balance brings long-lasting benefits for our institution as well as our people.

We will support your long-term future too, with access to the Universities Pension Scheme, and subsidised health and fitness facilities. Furthermore, Southampton, at the centre of the south coast, is a fantastic place in which to live, work and socialise – so regardless of what life stage you are at, you will find a dynamic and vibrant city that caters for all.  

We are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We select candidates based on merit and ability and aspire to thrive in the diversity of our workforce.  We welcome applications from all candidates with an interest in the role and those who are committed to helping us create an inclusive work environment.
