International Alumni Engagement Officer

Can you help grow and build an engagement programme for a diverse alumni community across the world? Can you develop the relationships necessary to maintain and grow an active international alumni network, delivering value both to individuals and the University?

The University of Leeds maintains contact with more than 260,000 alumni. A quarter of them live and work outside the UK.

You will provide a lead on our engagement of international alumni to support the University’s international strategic objectives, creating and implementing a plan to maximise the role they can play as advocates, influencers and supporters. 

You will possess outstanding interpersonal skills and the ability to create external and international relationships at all levels, particularly with individuals in senior and influential positions, and across the University. Our alumni community is geographically and cultural diverse and you will possess the international and cultural understanding to ensure that our alumni engagement activity is locally relevant, effective, and provides value to alumni themselves in different countries.

You will be able to think strategically but you’ll also be committed to getting actively involved in the delivery of events and other activity on the ground. You will be expected to undertake travel for approximately 6-7 weeks across the year, but you will be as adept at building up connections on the Leeds campus as you are with alumni internationally.
