Local Partnerships Manager
The purpose of this role is to develop, expand and realise these opportunities and to drive the implementation of a dynamic, local partnership strategy for the College in order to enhance our knowledge exchange, teaching and research activities.
This role will also be instrumental in developing ambitious programmes of work that align CSM/UAL strategic aims with the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy and regional development priorities.
Working within the College’s Business and Innovation team to develop and deliver a range of knowledge exchange, commercial & cultural initiatives, and funded partnerships in collaboration with staff, students and other organisations within the local boroughs of Camden and Islington and beyond as required.
Why choose us?
Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area. CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.
CSM’s relocation to King’s Cross in 2012 and the subsequent development of the site has opened up a range of new opportunities for the college, our staff and students to collaborate and work in partnership with local businesses and organisations, as well as neighbouring communities to positively contribute to the local civic and cultural life, as well as the economic development and burgeoning innovation agenda of the area.
You will have entrepreneurial flair, strong communication skills and new business development experience; including the ability to seek out opportunities with new partners as well as foster on-going, multi-layered relationships.
You will have a demonstrable track record of building and managing partnerships as well as, conceiving and securing consortia-based projects and knowledge exchange initiatives between academia and external partners; with an understanding and track record of the creative industry and regeneration funding landscape, and the motivations for engagement with arts and creative sector in this context.
In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
