We are seeking a Global Engagement Coordinator reporting to the Associate Dean (Global Engagement) on activities related to the implementation of the Faculty's international strategy.

As the Global Engagement Coordinator you will provide high-level support for the work of the Associate Dean (Global Engagement), and be responsible for key aspects of the management of the Faculty's international partnerships and collaborations.

You will work with key internal staff, both academic and professional, to develop and implement systems, policies and initiatives that maximise opportunities for both staff and student engagement, and to ensure these international opportunities are translated to operational practice.

You will also manage a range of internal and external relationships and liaise extensively with these partners to represent the Faculty's interests.
