Universitas 21 (U21)


Universitas 21 (U21) is a leading Global network of 27 research-intensive universities that empowers its members to share excellence, collaborate across borders and nurture global knowledge exchange.

Committed to promoting the value of internationalisation and multinational collaboration, U21 facilitates the delivery of programmes, activities and initiatives, which could not be delivered through a single university or via bi-lateral agreements. By bringing people together, across borders and cultures, we enable our members to achieve more.   

Vacancies will report to the Director of Operations and will have a close working relationship with the rest of the small U21 Secretariat team, currently based on the University of Birmingham’s campus.

U21 offers the same benefits available to University staff including additional holidays at Christmas and Easter, contributions to the USS pension scheme, and access to a brand new Sports Centre and pool.
