Job Details

The Dickson Poon School of Law is a vibrant law school with a long tradition of excellence. One of our strategic aims is to expand our executive education and short course offerings to a professional audience interested in developing their legal knowledge and expertise. Based within a diverse and historic university, we are in a unique position to draw on the vast breadth of expertise across King’s College London to provide interdisciplinary education to executives and leaders across a wide range of organisations and sectors. We have ambitious growth plans and are looking for an experienced professional who can lead in this area.  

We are seeking a Senior Programme Manager (SPM) to manage our small executive education programme team. Together with the Vice Dean for Executive Education and other senior professional services members, you will develop and deliver our professional education including bespoke programmes and short courses to a wide domestic and international audience. You will proactively define and improve our operations and programme delivery, ensuring a consistent, high-quality, professional experience for everyone. You will oversee and develop processes that underpin our programmes so that participants, clients, course directors and contributors have a positive and rewarding interaction, inspiring them for the next step of their journey.  

The role holder will have a key role in cultivating new opportunities, ensuring development plans align with our outstanding delivery. This is a highly collaborative role where you will work with colleagues across the law school and university to define, develop and embed best practice. The role holder will work closely with the central King’s Professional and Executive Development team. You will work across multiple projects, analyse information, make connections and use these inputs to proactively develop and organise the activities of the programme team. Some of our courses will be held on weekends and after normal working hours. The role holder may need to be available during those times. The role is primarily based at the King’s Strand Campus; however, the post holder may be required to travel to other locations on occasion. As part of the King’s hybrid working policy, all team members can work remotely for part of the week if they wish to do so. 

This post will be offered on a fixed term contract for 3 years
