Assistant Director, Careers Advising – ICBS 2017 022

Imperial College Business School

South Kensington Campus

Salary range £53,800 - £61,740 per annum (All appointments will normally be made at the bottom of the salary range).

This is an exciting opportunity to lead a world class business school careers consulting team as part of Imperial College Business School’s (ICBS) journey to advance from a top UK business school to a top global business school. 

The Careers & Professional Development Service (CPDS) focuses on two main activities:

  • Building and developing sustainable on-going relationships with employers that wish to hire our students and/or that our students aspire to work for
  • Preparing our students so they can be competitive in the selection processes run by these employers, and can be effective and successful employees when they graduated from ICBS. 

The Head of Careers Advising will define and implement the strategy for delivery of student careers programmes, online and in person, that align with the market employment trends. 

This role will work closely with faculty and programme staff to define the career and professional development offering across MSc and MBA programmes, designing an offering that will help our students find jobs that are right for them and then go on to succeed in their job.  The post holder will be responsible for leading on how we deliver our service and then oversee the operational side of delivery e.g. resource and budget planning, workshop allocation, management of external associates, etc.  

The post holder will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of all student and alumni career programming, including general careers material (e.g. CV, cover letter prep, networking skills, etc.) and sector-specific programming, covering the principal sectors of Management Consulting, Finance, Technology, FMCG/Healthcare, Climate Change, Energy & Sustainability and Social Impact. 

This post supports 1400 Masters and MBA students on campus, 600+ MBA students studying fully online from 50+ countries and 13,000 alumni, split across four annual start dates (September, October, January, April).

The successful applicant will oversee the development and delivery of world-class careers advising.  Experience in careers coaching within human resources, training/learning & development and/or recruitment would be valuable.   An understanding of world-class business education is an advantage.  Evidence of having successfully shaped and led high-performance teams, change and innovation across different organisations and/or sectors is also required.  World-class written and oral communication skills, especially the ability to develop and deliver inspiring presentations to groups of several hundred students, participants or alumni as well as one to one are essential.
