CELFS offers students opportunities to develop their academic language and literacy in order to thrive in their new academic context. As a centre, we strive to work according to the principles of development, reflexivity, autonomy, collaboration, transparency and transferability in everything we do. CELFS is located within the Faculty of Arts and works with students of all backgrounds at all levels across a growing range of disciplines.
The Deputy Director and Head of IFP will join CELFS’ Senior Management Team at an exciting time as the University renews its commitment to its in-house IFP and sets ambitious targets for growth and progression. As well as contributing to the overall strategic management of the Centre and deputising for the Director where appropriate, the successful candidate will lead on driving both the administrative and educational transformation of our International Foundation Programme, delivering a high-quality experience for both students and staff. Relationship building will be the key to successful delivery of this role, which involves working collaboratively with all Faculties, as well as at colleagues from our External Relations Division and our recruitment and marketing partners. This position is offered on an open ended basis subject to a two year review.
We are looking for someone who has significant experience of leading a team of teaching professionals in the Higher Education sector and who can demonstrate impact of innovative practice relevant to the role. This is very much a hybrid role that will require both strong credentials in teaching and learning and also the ability to make the most of strategic opportunities in a competitive business environment.
The selection process will include a formal & an informal interview and a presentation.
Interviews are likely to be held w/c 29 April

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
