The Durham University Business School and Role Purpose

Durham University Business School, one of the longest established business schools in the UK, is a multi-disciplinary School characterised by academic excellence, internationally-rated research and superb student support services. The School's diversity and international standing is reflected in the student intake (with over 110 nationalities); accreditation by AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS; and high positions in the UK and European Business School rankings. Further information on the School can be found at

The strength of a School's career provision has direct impact on the School's ability to select high quality students. In addition, student satisfaction with the careers service and the quality and progression of career outcomes are significant contributors to the international MBA and Masters programme rankings methodology; these rankings are also an important input to student choice of Business School and, in combination with other rankings determine the overall ranked position of a Business School.

The Business School seeks to appoint an experienced Career Consultant. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a significant contribution to our students at a key time of development and growth of some new programmes of learning. You will be joining a vibrant and supportive team who operate across a global footprint, with a multitude of partners across the globe. As a team we want to be at the cutting edge of the profession, so being innovative and adaptable is an essential part of the role.

As a Career Consultant you will deliver an innovative and effective career and professional development service targeted to meet the varying needs and expectations of Masters/MBA students and alumni from a diverse range of cultures and societies. They will work closely with the Learning and Teaching teams and module leaders and collaborate with External Engagement and International and Alumni teams to ensure career and skills development is an integral part of the student experience which supports the School's Strategic Framework as well as the rankings and accreditation outcomes. The School's career team will provide a wide range of tailored support, workshops, events, projects and resources and present a wide variety of global employment opportunities to assist the specific needs of the international Masters\MBA students and alumni to achieve their career goals.

We are looking for someone who wants to make a difference, has the drive to achieve results and take things to the next level. You should be 100% a team player and want to contribute to wider team goals as well forming effective cross team working relationships across the School and the wider university. As an individual you will be a people person, have personal presence, be a strong communicator who can develop relationships and rapport quickly. You will need an interest in industry, have a global awareness and use this knowledge to provide the expert advice our student and alumnus need.
