Internationalization and Partnership Development Specialist

Project Description

Iakob Gogebashvili Telavi State University (TeSAU) has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as an Internationalization and Partnership Development Specialist. TeSaU has experience working with the international community with the majority of the foreign projects that supported by EU. One of priorities for TeSaU administration, as reflected in the University’s strategic development plan, is to establish international projects that are initiated collaboratively with other universities. Over the last three years the Internationalization and Public Affairs staff (with the related academic staff) have been working on these types of project proposals, but they have not been successful as of yet. The administration has therefore identified three areas in need of additional support: Project Design and Management Skills; Marketing and Public Relations; and Partnership Development.

The PCRV will collaborate with the Head of the Internationalization and Public Affairs Office to support the university staff to improve project design and management skills through trainings, workshops, and resources. The PCRV will also identify the university’s visibility and public relations needs and assist in updating and developing social media tools and other digital platforms to enhance the university’s outreach and impact.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Georgia together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
