FutureLearn is a leading social learning platform formed in December 2012 by The Open University and is now the largest online learning platform in Europe with over eight million people signed up worldwide. FutureLearn uses design, technology and partnerships to create enjoyable, credible and flexible online courses and postgraduate degrees that improve working lives. It partners with a quarter of the world’s top universities, as well as organisations such as Accenture, the British Council, CIPD, Raspberry Pi and the New York Institute of Finance.

Our vision is a global community, where everyone learns together and enjoys access to the education they need to transform their lives. Our award-winning platform helps by provoking conversation around the course material, so that learners and educators learn as much from each other as from the material itself.

We are continuing our expansion as we make this journey from offering short online courses, through micro credentials to full online degrees, and working with employers and governments to reduce skills gaps. The pace of this change is reflected in extremely rapid growth of our revenues.


The purpose of this role is to work closely with FutureLearn’s key partners in delivering a set of commercially successful qualifications and short courses, built to high standards and in innovative ways, on the FutureLearn platform. You will also be expected to provide consultancy support to partners in the advancement of their broader digital strategies.

The core aim of the role is to ensure FutureLearn remains a trusted and effective partner in helping each university deliver marketable programmes to global audiences, delivered to a high standard, and in support of the wider digital transformation of the university.

You will be a critical member of the partnerships team, with a strong working knowledge of digital trends and developments in the higher education sector. You will work with senior managers and digital teams at higher education institutions to advise on the selection, promotion and delivery of programmes and qualifications, either blended or fully online.

You will collaborate with internal teams to deliver the full suite of products and services available to partners.

You will also provide support to the wider activities of the Partnerships team.
