Broaden your horizons… and theirs.

Our latest leadership opportunity gives you the space to develop your own career – as well as that of our students - in a truly stimulating and diverse organisation. This is a fantastic chance for a talented and ambitious individual to continue developing academically by leading a key activity at the university while acquiring further managerial skills along the way.

You will join a vibrant community of scholars, researchers and practitioners in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities which has a global profile and a heritage of quality built up over 175 years. And, over the last five years, we are proud to have invested over £250million in our academic capability while further developing our world-class facilities so that both our staff and our students remain in great hands.

As well as offering a broad range of exciting courses across subjects such as history, politics and international relations, our School of Humanities embraces innovation and has an enviable record of delivering outstanding student experience. It is also one of our most active schools in terms of international mobility. As Associate Head, you will represent this School internally, externally and internationally, developing our global strategy and agenda. You will network proactively and develop partnerships at a national and international level to ensure opportunities are identified and delivered.

To fulfil this role, we are looking for a dedicated individual with a PhD (or an equivalent level of professional standing alongside a postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject) and experience in a relevant subject area. A track record of academic excellence and innovation in developing a student-centred curriculum relevant to the Global Engagement portfolio is also an advantage.

In return for your skills and commitment, Coventry University provides opportunities for both career and personal development in the form of a tailored development programme. In addition, our comprehensive benefits package includes a generous holiday allowance and pension, as well as flexible working options. We will also consider assistance for those wishing to relocate to the Coventry area.

So, as we prepare for Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture, join Coventry University’s  community and enable our students to be globally connected.
