Transforming lives through excellent education

London Met is an extraordinary institution. Equity and social inclusion have always been our driving principles, and it's what makes the University so unique. Our organisation is distinctive, both in its eclectic and diverse community of students and staff, and also for its historical role in serving some of London's most deprived boroughs. Everything we do is underpinned by our philosophy that an individual should have the opportunity to transform their life through the power of education.

Equipping our students with the tools for their future is at the heart of our academic offering. We pride ourselves on providing our students with access to a wealth of opportunities and professions. Our graduates benefit personally, but also contribute their unique perspectives to society, culture, public service and the economy in all areas of London, the UK and around the world.

As Dean of Students, you will work closely with the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) and Pro Vice Chancellor Teaching and Learning to ensure high quality, modern, proactive student services and student administration to enhance the student experience at one of the UK's most diverse and inclusive universities. An experienced leader and good communicator, you will demonstrate a high level of professional credibility and create a culture of continuous improvement and student partnership working to drive forward the Student Success element of the University's Strategic Plan. With particular expertise in engagement and achievement, you will contribute to the University's Education for Social Justice Framework, Transitions Framework, and our Race Equality Charter application.

Key responsibilities include overseeing the teams that support student services, the students' union, the registry and academic quality. Ultimately, you will report to the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic on all matters linked to the support and administration of students contributing to student safety, resilience, well-being and a sense of belonging.

We are keen to hear from experienced applicants with a commitment to London Met's vision and values and senior management experience of complex service areas including at least one of the areas described above. You will be committed to team work and a cross university approach to supporting students informed by the confident use of data. 

We are looking to appoint an inspirational leader with enthusiasm, vision, initiative and sound judgement, and the ability to manage complex human situations in a compassionate, effective, pragmatic way.  Most importantly, you will have the ability to develop effective relationships both internally and externally, and a commitment to equality and inclusion and the delivery of services that meet the needs of a diverse, vibrant student body.

If you are passionate about making a positive difference then we would love to hear from you.  For further information and details of how to apply, please visit https://www.dixonwalter.co.uk/opportunities/dean-of-students-lmu/ ‎or contact Emma Wilkins at Dixon Walter on 07741 875289 or at emma@dixonwalter.co.uk.
