There are now two equivalent Director of College Administration roles available at UAL. One will be based at the College of Central St Martins and will be based at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges.
Working closely with the Pro Vice-Chancellor/Head of College, the Director of College Administration is responsible for the provision of high level strategic and policy advice, for the effective and efficient use of resources, and the overseeing of operations in the College in relation to the College’s strategic and academic priorities.
Strategic thinking and strong operational delivery ability will certainly be important as you lead professional services here at Central Saint Martins. But what will really make the difference is your way with people. From the collaborative relationships you forge with senior staff, to the inspirational approach you take to leading and developing people, you’ll be recognised for your organisational abilities, enthusiasm and expertise.
Joining our Executive Group and Senior Management Team, you too will need to embrace change and thrive on the challenge to deliver improvements. The ability to strategically and operationally refine services and evolve practices while responding at pace to all manner of day-to-day matters is what makes this role so stimulating.
