Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) is looking for an enthusiastic, pro-active, and thoughtful Senior Policy Advisor Management Support and Control: Organisational Strategy and Development. It might be you?

Job description

As Policy Advisor Management Support and Control, you will work for the SBE Board on topics in the field of Organisational Strategy and Development and support mainly the Managing Director and the Dean of SBE. In recent years, the organizational structure of SBE changed into a matrix structure. Furthermore, various institutes were integrated into SBE, such as the Maastricht School of Governance, Maastricht Sustainability Institute, and most recent the Maastricht School of Management. This has consequences for both the size of the School and organisation of strategic and day-to-day processes. At this moment, the post-integration processes of the integrated institutions with different organizational backgrounds, profiles and brands need to be further developed as part of the matrix structure.

You will work closely with the Managing Director and the Dean on the further design of these integration processes with involvement of all stakeholders. Furthermore, you will be working on the development of appropriate and fine-tuned management processes and cycles that optimally fit SBE’s matrix structure. Annually recurring tasks will consist of the preparation of policy texts accompanying SBE’s budget application and the annual report. Next to that, the content-wise preparation of spring and autumn meetings of the SBE Board with the Executive Board and the SBE Departments respectively will be supported by you and you will advise the Board in the preparation of strategy-oriented meetings such as the IAB (International Advisory Board) and DEB (Dutch Deans Economics and Business. Your home base will be the Policy Development and Quality Assurance Office, in which you will collaborate with other driven policy advisors in different fields, secretaries and information officers.
