We are seeking a committed and professional individual with a strong track record delivering complex projects and programmes, to support the development of Queen Mary’s activities in Latin America.

This exciting new opportunity will allow the postholder to play a critical role a key area of expansion for Queen Mary. The Partnership Manager will be responsible for building activity through initiating and managing the full range of collaborative activities including – in the first instance – organising international committees, coordinating high-level visits, and ensuring that appropriate resources and processes are in place to facilitate the smooth-running of existing and new relationships in Latin America.

A collaborative and collegiate approach is essential to the success of the role, with the postholder expected to be comfortable working with a diverse array of internal and external stakeholders, managing a busy workload, and complex network of stakeholders.
