La Trobe University's success is driven by people who are committed to making a difference. They are creative and highly motivated, pursue new ideas and create knowledge. La Trobe is among the top 100 universities in the world under the age of 50 (Times Higher Education Rankings 2016), one of Australia's research leaders, and the largest provider of higher education to regional Victoria. Our teaching and research address some of the most significant issues of our time and we're passionate about driving change to benefit the communities we serve.

In this role

This role offers a rare opportunity to those who may be interested in working in the student mobility arena at the HEO 7 level.

The Senior Coordinator, La Trobe Abroad, is one of two such senior positions who work with the Manager, La Trobe Abroad and team colleagues to support the efficient and effective provision of the team's services, build strong and constructive working relationships with academic and administrative colleagues in the Colleges, Schools and other Divisions to develop new programs, promote the value of overseas study experiences, and support the delivery of The La Trobe Essentials (e.g. Global Citizenship). These relationships and the consequent collaborative work among all stakeholders will ultimately contribute to the University's achievement of its internationalisation strategies and plans.

This position has a particular focus on short overseas programs, including study tour consultation, exchange partner summer/winter programs, clinical placements and third party mobility provider programs to ensure student mobility opportunities are generated and delivered in a coordinated and synergistic manner within LTI and across the University.

The candidate

To succeed, you will possess:

  • Cultural sensitivity and cross-cultural communication skills.
  • Proven ability to represent the University internationally in a variety of cultural settings encompassing all levels of formality.
  • Familiarity with ESOS legislation and Immigration regulations as they relate to international students and education providers.

Strongly Preferred:

  • Experience with New Colombo Plan and other government initiatives
  • Experience with short overseas programs and promotion

Closing date: Monday 5th Dec 2016
