Richmond, The American International University in London

Salary of around £150k and benefits

With a vision to be a leading liberal arts university, Richmond offers students an unparalleled education in London, blending two of the finest education systems in the world.  We are a unique and pioneering institution, global in outlook and in practice, diverse and cosmopolitan in our cultures. A leading private not-for-profit institution, we are accredited in the United States by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and registered with the Office for Students in the UK with taught degree awarding powers.

Reporting directly to the President, we are now seeking to appoint to the new role of Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Finance and Operations to work alongside the existing Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, and with the University’s wider senior management, providing leadership to the finance department and to other professional services within the University. With an exciting relocation to Chiswick Park in summer 2022 and building on foundations of academic excellence and high-quality student support, our new DVC will deliver performance improvements to advance our operations to the benefit of our students.

Our new strategic plan provides a strategy for institutional growth and the new DVC will bring a focus on financial performance along with a drive to maximise the strengths and expertise of the variety of teams within the newly established portfolio. The role requires a formal financial qualification along with experience of financial management in a complex organisation, ideally within UK or US higher education. Above all, it is important that candidates can be an exemplar for our values.
