Professional, Managerial and Support Services Talent Trends report 2021/22

Managers, professionals and administrators at higher education institutions play a key role in shaping and delivering their vision while keeping everything running smoothly, efficiently and cost-effectively. From HR, Marketing and IT to Finance and Property, they provide vital support and are the heartbeat of many universities. However, competition from the private sector and other institutions and organisations locally, regionally and internationally is increasingly fierce. It’s becoming more challenging for higher education institutions to attract the best professional, managerial and support talent. With more recruitment channels and places to look for jobs, the market is also increasingly complex.
