With a culturally diverse campus life and extensive international exchange and research programs, UTS prepares graduates for the workplaces of today and tomorrow
The university is currently seeking a Rankings Program Manager to manage our international rankings and ratings program as a critical component of the University’s research, external engagement and internationalisation strategies. Based within the University’s Planning and Quality Unit, the manager will develop, communicate and manage the program of activity that supports the University’s participation in a number of rankings and ratings.
About the role
As an effective program manager, communicator and influencer, you will develop and manage an integrated program of activity across all faculties and central units. Your data management and analysis skills will be critical as you coordinate and work closely with colleagues who contribute to the data-intensive elements of the rankings program.
Day to day you will be responsible for ensuring that the university’s complex program of activity is delivered, including the delivery of multiple simultaneous projects and activities, and that all team members are clear on their high priority tasks and are supported to achieve them.

You will be accustomed to anticipating and responding to changing external and internal requirements to ensure your team’s activities remain aligned to the university’s strategy.
