HESPA Membership Development Manager (full time)

The Higher Education Strategic Planners Association (HESPA) is the representative body for those working in strategy and planning roles in UK higher education providers. Our members are higher education providers, of which we have nearly 150. We work to support relevant staff by enabling greater networking, staff training and development and advocacy opportunities. 

We are looking for a full time ambitious and energetic HESPA Membership Development Manager to listen to member needs, identify solutions and drive forward to implement projects and support streams. The role holder will have at least three years’ experience of working in the higher education sector, in any function or department, and share a basic understanding of the policy environment in which our institutional and individual members operate. This is a homeworking role, however we do have an office in Loughborough should you wish to access that and there is likely to be some travel involved to meetings and events across the UK. The post-holder reports to the Executive Director and has no staff management responsibilities.

HESPA is a Professional HE Services Ltd (PHES) organisation and offers a competitive salary between £33,314 and £46,047 (grade 7), dependent on qualifications and experience. A defined contribution pension scheme is offered with 7.5% employee and 16% employer contribution rates, together with life insurance. We offer 30 days’ holiday plus bank holidays and discretionary days’ office closure. Support for CPD and appropriate training will be given.

We are committed to equality of opportunity, to eliminating discrimination and to creating an inclusive working environment for all. We therefore encourage candidates to apply irrespective of age, disability, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, gender identity, sex, or sexual orientation.
