The independent higher education sector is an exciting and dynamic space in which to work, with an entrepreneurial streak driving real innovations in how the business of learning is done. Career progression can be rapid, with talented individuals benefitting from a collaborative and hands-on approach which gives them the opportunity to learn widely across varied roles.
It is also a sector comprising predominantly SMEs, with a lean workforce helping to keep overheads low and institutions nimble. Departments and teams are often smaller than you would find in a traditional university, and independent providers cannot always compete on salary with much larger institutions when recruiting for some professionals in high demand.
Finding the right talent for those roles critical to helping an institution pursue its mission in the changing UK HE landscape has never been more important, so IHE will be making the recruitment, retention and professional development of staff one of its strategic priorities, and we will engage members and partners in the task of transforming our offer in this area.
