The University of Nottingham is a world-leading comprehensive research-intensive institution with a distinctive and pioneering global platform.

This drives a commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and graduate outcomes, and to unlocking the potential of 45,000 students across campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia. At the University of Nottingham the culture is ambitious, creative and collaborative, and without boundaries.

We are now seeking to appoint a Director of Planning, Performance and Strategic Change to lead the development of strategic planning, performance improvement and strategy formulation across the University.

The Director will deliver a fundamental step change in the directorate’s performance and impact, enhancing cross-University collaborative working (including collaboration with the campuses in China and Malaysia), improving management decision-making, maximising performance and optimising the University’s overall position.

The Director will work closely and collaboratively with the Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, reporting to the Registrar. The role will engage, collaborate and work in partnership with academic and Professional Services colleagues across the University.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of leading and developing planning, performance processes and strategic change initiatives in a relevant environment. Candidates will bring strong analytical skills along with significant team leadership experience and the ability to influence and engage at the most senior levels.
