Senior Academic Coordinator (Fixed Term)
Ref. 50042784

Salary: £59,920 p.a. (inc. L.W.A.)

Department: Vice Chancellor’s Office

Location: Central London

Fixed term for two years

Originally founded as the Royal Polytechnic Institution in 1883, the University of Westminster (UoW) has had an incredibly successful past and prides itself on its diversity, its global connections and reputation for innovation. With around 20,000 students in four main campuses – Regent, Marylebone, Cavendish and Harrow – Westminster is dedicated to ensuring that graduates are confident, independent, highly employable and free thinking, furnished with the technical and analytical skills to compete in the global knowledge economy. Students will benefit from experiencing a diverse, multicultural and vibrant learning community in the heart of London.

The University of Westminster co-founded Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) in 2002. The academic portfolio, grounded in programmes in Business Administration, Economics, Commercial Law, and Business Information Systems, has been extended to include Masters’ courses in International Business and Management, International Commercial Law and Applied Economics. WIUT as an institution has been developed on the model of a UK University and is a validated partner of the University of Westminster.  

Based at the University of Westminster but with a substantial proportion of time spent in Tashkent, and reporting to the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Global Engagement, the postholder will work with UoW and WIUT colleagues to take forward the development of the partnership. The post will be of two years’ duration, in the first instance and is full time (35 hours per week) with a start date in February 2018. The post entails no line management responsibility but involves substantial work with a wide range of stakeholders, academic and administrative staff, at UoW and WIUT. Effective coordination across Faculties (Colleges) and Professional Services teams at UoW and across the two institutions engaged in the partnership is key to the successful execution of the role, as is the ability to produce, deliver and ensure effective monitoring of partnership development and project plans.

We are looking for a committed and talented professional, with a higher degree and substantial HE experience, including experience of programme management; project management; international partnership management; quality assurance in the international context; and effective team working. You will have excellent skills in the area of interpersonal interaction, communication and intercultural awareness; and will have strong empathy to cultural difference and diversity.
