Our new University Strategy sets out a commitment to ensure our graduates are recognised globally for a University of Southampton Experience that sets them apart: as curious; engaged; articulate; ethical; culturally aware; enterprising; and socially and environmentally responsible. As such, we’re investing in growing our global mobility programme to complement our success in our Turing Scheme bid.
We are seeking a remarkable individual to lead this growth of our global mobility, developing opportunities for our students and ensuring participation in the programme from across the University.
As Head of Global Mobility, you’ll be responsible for devising and overseeing a range of high-quality opportunities for inbound and outbound student mobility, in support of the International Strategic Plan. This will include preparing bids for funding from internal and external sources, and leading a small team in delivery of the operation.
About you:
