King’s College London
Permanent, Full Time
King's College London is seeking to appoint an Executive Director for Culture, a newly created role, with responsibility for leading the cultural engagement activity across the university and for delivering the new cultural strategy to 2023. The opportunity arises following the recent appointment of Deborah Bull as Vice-President and Vice-Principal (London), to whom this new role will report.
Culture is well-embedded into the life and work of the university with an ambition in the next five years to ensure that culture and cultural collaborations are even more closely aligned to the university's core priorities of research, education and service.
In the last five years, under the leadership of Deborah Bull, King's College London has considerably increased its engagement through culture and now leads the international higher education sector in its integrated approach to arts and culture and the opportunity it provides university-wide to open up new areas of research, education and service to communities in London and beyond, in support of King’s core aims.
In this new post, the Executive Director will work closely with Deborah Bull and the Culture team to refine and implement the refreshed cultural strategy at the university. They will work with Executive Deans of Faculties and their senior teams in leveraging the potential of arts and culture in education, research and service, in line with the university's Strategic Vision 2029 and in support of the student experience.
In the new Executive Director, King's is looking for an accomplished strategic leader with the proven ability to lead and motivate the high-performing Culture team. They will have extensive prior experience of leading successful change and of operating successfully within a complex organisation. Candidates for this post will need to demonstrate the ability to understand and work within the pressures of the HE environment, to influence senior stakeholders within the university and across the cultural sector, enhancing King's impact and visibility.
