Job Vacancies


Director of International Programmes

Applications are invited for this senior post, tenable with effect from September 2016.

Pembroke’s International Programmes Department has become, over recent decades, a central contributor to Pembroke’s broader academic reputation and its ability to generate independent income. The College, one of Cambridge’s oldest, has developed a range of relationships with leading overseas universities. These provide opportunities for up to 700 students a year to attend the College and experience different aspects of its academic and communal life. The Department’s role is to manage these relationships and run the various academic programmes which it offers to these students both in term-time and during the vacations.

As an Official Fellow the successful candidate, working closely with senior College officers and reporting to the Bursar, will be responsible for the design, delivery and management of the Department’s programmes and for their development in ways which continue to enhance the international reputation of the College as a leading provider of study abroad opportunities. While significant experience of higher education and a market-oriented business environment would be desirable, above all the College is looking for a first-rate leader of people and projects, capable of setting and achieving challenging targets for the Department. He or she will probably have a higher university degree and as a Fellow of the College will also be able to contribute generally to the life of the College at a time of significant change in Higher Education and to the College’s commitment to excellence in all aspects of student development. The stipend and benefits offered will reflect the seniority of the appointment and will be discussed according to experience and ability for a suitably qualified candidate, but could be on the University salary spine (including USS pension) in the range equivalent to a Professor of £68k to £74k.

Further particulars and a statement of the Director of International Programmes’ responsibilities are available here. Prospective candidates wishing to discuss the position informally are encouraged to contact Dr David Jarvis: david.jarvis@pem.cam.ac.uk.

Applicants are requested to upload here a letter of application, containing details of the applicant’s career and experience, a c.v. and the names of three persons from whom references may be sought. Alternatively postal applications maybe sent to Mrs S Squire, Bursar’s Office, Pembroke College, Cambridge, CB2 1RF or care of Sue.Squire@pem.cam.ac.uk by 10 June 2016. It is anticipated that interviews will take place end-June/early July 2016.
