Cambridge Judge Business School leverages the power of academia for real world impact to transform individuals, organisations and society. Since 1990, Cambridge Judge has forged a reputation as a centre of rigorous thinking and high-impact transformative education, situated within one of the world's most prestigious research universities, and in the heart of the Cambridge Cluster, the most successful technology entrepreneurship cluster in Europe.
The Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation (CCSI) at Cambridge Judge Business School brings students and the social, corporate and public sectors together to disseminate research findings and turn ideas into action. The Centre aims to be a hub for global thought leadership and practice in making social change.
The Master of Studies (MSt) in Social Innovation is a part-time graduate programme delivered over two years. It includes online delivery and four residentials of a week each in Cambridge. The programme provides an overview and understanding of social innovation and approaches to address social, cultural, economic, and environmental challenges and opportunities. It is aimed at middle and senior level leaders in NGOs, public bodies and the private sector. Each cohort (recruited annually) is expected to have around 35 students, and be international in scope.
The role holder is the first point of contact for candidates to the programme from the point that they express an interest in the course until they submit an application. They are expected to work closely with the MSt Business Development and Programme Manager and to coordinate two areas which are essential for the success of the programme: student recruitment (marketing the programme to potential candidates and organising events) and online programme delivery support (maintaining the VLE and facilitating online teaching).
The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level or equivalent and be an exceptional administrator with great attention to detail and the ability to work flexibly and on own initiative. Experience of actioning marketing plans, ideally for student recruitment purposes in higher education and planning and delivering online and face-to-face events is essential. Excellent communication and relationship management skills, experience of project management and using virtual learning environment, as well as supporting students at a distance, are desirable. Applicants will have proofreading and copy-editing skills, the ability to prioritise own workload to meet multiple deadlines and will be a proactive team player.
