Business minded, industry engaged, research applied, technologically savvy and digitally leading, Staffordshire University provides an outstanding education for our students, preparing them for the jobs of the future, some of which do not yet exist.

The pace of change in UK higher education is the greatest it has ever been. An increasingly competitive market makes higher education a challenging environment, yet despite the pressures of this dynamic landscape we see opportunities. By 2030, we will lead the sector in hyper personalised learning and be the UK’s foremost digital higher education institution. The appointment of our Executive Director of Digital and Technical Services is critical to this ambition. A member of the University Executive Board and reporting to the Pro Vice-Chancellor Digital Transformation, our Executive Director will work across the University community to drive the Digital and Technical Services business plan, leading a large team, identifying and delivering through partnership working, key strategic projects supporting the delivery of our Strategic Plan and digital ambitions.  

Candidates will bring a depth of relevant leadership experience and a thorough understanding of digital and technical operations and how these can be maximised in a university like ours. With digital in our DNA, we need our new Executive Director to play a key role in how we evolve our technology and maximising the positive impact that these areas can have on our academic, professional services and student community.
