We are one of the largest business schools in the UK with resources to invest to distinguish us as a major international force in global business and management research and education.  NBS research has already seen a step change since our strong performance in REF 2014, confirmed by EQUIS accreditation in 2017.  We now have one of the most vibrant research environments in the UK with three world-leading research centres, and five major research groups and with a number of internationally renowned researchers joining us recently, we aim to further accelerate our research with a major programme of investment.  
NTU is also ranked 16th overall by the Guardian and has received unprecedented national recognition, winning the THE University of the Year (2017) and Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year (2018), The Guardian’s University of Year 2019 as well as TEF Gold Rating.  
The Department of Management is the largest of NBS’ five Departments, with more 70 academic members of staff who engage in education and research that combine academic excellence with positive impact on business and society.  The Department is currently comprised of 8 Professors, 6 Associate Professors, 12 Principal Lecturers, 36 Senior Lecturers, and 8 Academic Mentors, with plans to expand over the next 5 years.  The department covers the subject areas of Strategy, Business Ethics and Sustainability, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, International Business, Analytics, Operations and Supply Chain Management.  

Due to the planned retirement of the current Head of Department, we are seeking to appoint a strong academic leader as the Head of Department to provide strategic and operational leadership and to enhance the provision and reputation of our research, teaching and engagement with external organisations internationally.  Reporting to the Dean of NBS, you will be part of the NBS executive team and make a major contribution to the future development of school.
