Loughborough launches new University Management and Leadership programme
A new programme designed to develop ambitious graduates for leadership and management roles in higher education has been launched by Loughborough University.
The University Management and Leadership programme is open to recent Loughborough graduates from summer 2016 or later and existing employees of the University that meet the criteria.
The three-year-long scheme will see successful applicants complete a series of nine-month placements across different areas of the University’s Professional Services.
From working in Marketing and Advancement to undertaking a position in Human Resources, the programme will enable trainees to experience a variety of roles and learn what it takes to run a high-achieving university.
Richard Taylor, the University’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “This exciting programme is designed to develop individuals for roles in higher education leadership and management.
“We’re looking for ambitious individuals with an interest in working for an organisation, that aim to: educate winners, invest in our staff, grow capacity and influence, and continue to raise our standards and aspirations.”
Mark Chester, who works in the Finance Office, is a graduate employee. He said: “The University is a fantastic place to work. It is a much bigger operation than I ever imagined as a student and that means the opportunities for work and development are so varied.”
More information on the Loughborough Graduate Programme and how to apply can be found online.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 14 March.
