As part of this ambitious transformation, four new Schools are being created and all require visionary founding Heads of School with substantial academic leadership experience and the ambition to drive forward their strategic growth agendas and to deliver fundamental KPIs.

Reporting to the Dean of Faculty, these posts will play a key role in the University’s Academic Leadership Group and represent their Faculty to external and internal stakeholders. The roles will require you to have significant academic or professional experience in an area relevant to the School.  A Professorial title will be offered if successful candidates meet our criteria.
