Liaison Manager

Oxford Brookes University

This role is part of the drive by Oxford Brookes Business School (OBBS) to increase our global footprint, broadening access to an OBBS education worldwide, and further enhancing our reputation as a truly international University. Our aim is to diversify the range of global opportunities through which international students are able to enrol on our programmes, both at OBBS and with partner institutions in other countries.

Working closely with the Head of UK and International Partnerships, you will be the key figure for the management of our institutional global partnerships.
