Are you an outstanding professional with experience of working in an alumni environment and increasing alumni engagement? Do you have the enthusiasm and drive to create a new, thriving alumni community at Anglia Ruskin University London? If so, we would like to discuss with you an exciting new opportunity to establish, launch and develop ARUL’s new Alumni Hub, with a focus on:
- establishing an alumni network, community and services for mutual benefit to ARUL alumni and students;
- supporting our alumni who have not yet progressed into a graduate role or postgraduate study to do so by providing high-quality careers training, advice and coaching;
- providing inspiration to students and potential students via recent, relatable and diverse role models from our alumni community in graduate employment and/ or postgraduate study; and
- increasing alumni engagement and building our new friend-raising activity (rather than fundraising) to make a positive impact to students’ lives.
Anglia Ruskin University, London (ARUL) is an ambitious, teaching-led provider of undergraduate and postgraduate education, primarily aimed at a widening participation student body. Based in Farringdon and East India, ARUL is a multi-building campus with over 8,000 students studying subjects related to Business, Finance, Health care and Law.
Continued growth in demand for our student-centred courses has led to the opportunity to expand our Employability Team and establish a new Alumni Hub. The Employability Team offers students and recent alumni careers guidance and employability support during and after their undergraduate and postgraduate studies. We are currently implementing an ambitious strategy to support students to gain the skills they need for graduate career success and/ or progression to postgraduate study. Our next step is to launch our Alumni Hub to promote engagement with our alumni community to develop the sense of connection they have with us into tangible graduate career support for them and graduate career inspiration, employment opportunities and relatable role models for our current students.
You will have an honours degree and ideally a master’s degree. This is a full-time permanent post.
