INTRODUCTION FROM THE VICE-CHANCELLOR | 5
Introduction From The Vice-Chancellor Thank you for your interest in the role of Head of Global Opportunities at Keele University. Keele has ambitious plans for its future growth and development, building upon its reputation as a research-led campus University with a broad academic base. We are large enough to have high impact and profile, but small enough to sustain our commitment to community and individuals. Whilst being rooted in its locality, the University is international in outlook and character and in the reach and impact of its education and research programmes. We are seeking to appoint a Head of Global Opportunities to lead on the development of the University’s mobility opportunities for both staff and students. This post represents an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual with strong team management skills to lead the Global Opportunities team, which sits within the Directorate of Marketing and Communications The Global Opportunities team is responsible for student exchanges under Erasmus and outside Erasmus; fee paying study abroad; short courses; and the management of Erasmus + ICM programmes. The Head of Global Opportunities will be able to grow the university’s mobility activities, including the strategic development of full year, semester and shorter term mobility schemes both on
a fee paying and exchange basis while managing our transition out of the EU.
As we look ahead to 2020 and beyond, Keele will be a University characterised by ‘aspiration and ambition’ – an aspirational destination for students and staff. The Head of Global Opportunities will play a full role in enabling this vision. If you believe that you have the experience and qualities to be part of the leadership of the University through its next period of development and growth, then I hope that you will pursue this opportunity.
Professor Trevor McMillan Vice-Chancellor

Background Keele University is a world class campus-based University committed to providing the highest quality learning and living environment in which our students and researchers can flourish.
The University makes a unique contribution to higher education in its continued commitment to encouraging interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary education and research. Keele offers distinctive educational programmes and a learning environment that enables our students to make the most of their time at university. As a result, Keele students are among the most satisfied in the country. Keele has been consistently ranked highly for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey. Keele graduates are highly prized for their flexibility of thought and the maturity of their social skills. The University has one of the best graduate employment rates in the UK, clearly evidencing that our students achieve their potential. Keele remains in the UK top ten for student employability, with 97.5% of students who graduated in 2016 finding full-time employment or further study within six months.
Keele also has high quality teaching; recently assessed as ‘Gold’ in the Teaching Excellence Framework, we have also been ranked 4th in Times Higher Education for quality of teaching staff. Keele was the first new post-war UK university of the 20th Century and exemplified the innovation and idealism of the post-war generations, offering bold alternative visions for Higher Education. The University College of North Staffordshire was founded in 1949 and received its Royal Charter as the University of Keele in 1962. There was a deliberate aim to break away from the pattern of the specialised honours degree, avoiding as far as possible the divisions between different branches of study. Whilst there have been changes, the coherence of Keele’s academic vision remains, with continued emphasis on academic breadth through a wide range of elective modules and interdisciplinary degrees, as well as continuing to offer many integrated and combined degree programmes. The most recent REF classified 97% of the University’s research as world-leading or of international importance. The innovations and discoveries of Keele academics are key contributors to wider social and global issues, and it is important to Keele that our educational delivery is research-led.
BACKGROUND | 7
Keele has connections across the globe. The University is in contact with more than 43,000 of its alumni in 139 countries. This global network includes senior diplomats and politicians, leading business people and officials in international NGOs, such as the UN. Our research is also increasingly international in its partnerships, with strong links in every continent. The University is committed to honouring its heritage of “a University within North Staffordshire for the advancement pf Knowledge, the diffusion and extension of Arts, Sciences and Learning, the provision of Liberal, Professional and Technological Education”. Our links with the region have seen significant growth in recent years, developing the New Keele Deal, unlocking £70m of investment into exploiting the potential of our extensive world-leading research and facilities. With our integrated Science and Innovation Park, we are committed to helping to tackle low productivity and grow a positive culture of innovation and research within tour region.

AN EDUCATION THAT INSPIRES | 13
An Education that Inspires Keele offers distinctive programmes and a learning environment that enables our students to make the most of their time at University.
The University is justly proud of its students and alumni, who set themselves ambitious goals as they seek to make a positive impact on the world around them. Our students voted Keele top of the NSS Survey for three consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) and our teaching has been ranked as ‘Gold’ in the Teaching Excellence Framework. We are committed to providing opportunities for all those who can demonstrate the determination to succeed at the University irrespective of their circumstances or background. We offer our students a supportive community and provide financial support when appropriate through generous bursaries and scholarships. Originally a University that offered only interdisciplinary options and an integrated Foundation Year, we have now evolved into an institution where a third of our students continue to study two or more disciplines to completion. We have maintained a thriving Foundation Year, providing pathways to inspirational education that we are proud to offer. Our programmes are innovative, inspirational and delivered by exceptional staff, with outstanding commitment to high-quality education provision and student-centred experiences.
We have extensive outreach and widening participation activity, including being lead institution of one of the 29 HEFCE-funded NCOP schemes; Higher Horizons+. Colleagues across the institution work with thousands of school-aged students, their parents and teachers, giving guidance on higher education choices and delivering aspiration-raising activities both on and off campus. The campus offers a wide range of co-curricular activities which are an important part of our broad degree offering, which extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. With 10,000 students and 2,000 staff living and working on the Keele campus, we are the size of a small town. We have a strong postgraduate community, and have a clear strategy to grow both postgraduate taught and research student numbers. Our postgraduate research numbers have grown significantly over the last 5 years.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Keele University values equality and diversity across our workforce and welcomes applications from individuals from all sectors of society. Where there is evidence of under-representation of a particular group in a specific type of role or at a certain grade the University is committed to taking appropriate action to actively encourage applications from that group. The University is keen to support all applicants during the recruitment and selection process where possible and particularly those with additional requirements. Applicants with disabilities are asked to identify in their application if they require any adjustments to the process.
