Head of the School of Aviation and Security

Competitive remuneration and benefits

Buckinghamshire New University (BNU) is a modern university, with a proud 130-year history and heritage of transforming our students’ lives. Our richly diverse student body has a high proportion of students drawn from ethnic minorities and from low participation areas. We build social capital as well as skills and competences to help our students reach their full potential and succeed in their chosen careers and professions. We have a distinctive, high-quality educational offer coupled with well-developed regional, national and international partnerships.

We are now seeking to appoint the Head of the School of Aviation and Security. The University has been delivering Aviation programmes for over 20 years, with a focus on developing skills and employability capability and knowledge for its graduates who wish to enter this dynamic sector. Our policing, security and resilience courses are seeing unprecedented growth as the importance of these sectors in challenging times is underlined and becoming more widely understood. The School is continuing to grow and expand; increasing its traditional undergraduate student base whilst delivering new programmes such as our MSc in Aviation Security, as well as short and non-degree programmes; flexible academic years and the continued development of online delivery. 

You will be an established and ambitious academic leader with experience of managing a portfolio of aviation and/or security programmes, and a relevant personal academic profile. You will bring the skills and experience to deliver the School’s strategic business plan and key performance indicators in line with the University’s strategy. You will build on the quality and successes already achieved by the School and continue to lead cultural change to deliver high levels of performance and an outstanding student experience.

If you are excited by the opportunity to lead this growing and dynamic School, we would be pleased to hear from you. You can download the candidate pack at https://andersonquigley.com/candidates/ quoting reference AQ1483
