  • Bathurst location, ideal for tree change/return home
  • New role to help shape the future of a progressive academic institution
  • Senior leadership role, focussed on innovation and transformation

Charles Sturt University (CSU) is in a strong position to adapt to the fast-evolving educational landscape; being relatively new it is not bogged down in the shackles of tradition; it has a geographical footprint openly and proactively supported by government; and its faculties support learning and advancement in some of the fastest growing and important areas of business and community. What better time to make a tree change and join the forward thinking leadership team to play a pivotal role in its continuous evolution.

As Director of Market Strategy and Partnering you (and your team) will be tasked with driving the design and development of innovative market driven strategies, covering products, channels, partners and audiences. This will involve extensive research and market analysis both domestically and increasingly overseas. This will then drive programs of product and channel innovation and development that you will champion through the leadership of cross functional teams.

Whilst much of the collaboration needed to deliver successful outcomes will be internal, there is also a substantial requirement to identify and foster relationships with external third parties to enable the strategic growth this role is responsible for.

This is a high profile appointment within CSU and as such demands high calibre experience allied to a rare combination of interpersonal skills. First and foremost you will be able to demonstrate a strong track record of delivering innovative and commercially successful propositions from within a service based environment - though not necessarily education. You are a natural leader of people and take delight in their personal development as much as your own. You are a big picture thinker but are totally comfortable rolling up your sleeves when needed to, as your focus is on outcomes and results. Last but not least you know how to influence and inspire a diverse group of stakeholders even when their priorities may differ from your own.

In return we offer a fantastic culture fully underpinned by our values: insightful; inclusive; impactful; inspiring - values that could be written exclusively for a successful marketer. Quality of life and cost of living will be a considerable step up from the metro life you may currently enjoy/endure. But most of all you will get to make a difference - a real difference.
