Executive Director of Student Services    
Staffordshire University 
Competitive Salary & Benefits

For the last five years, Staffordshire University has been on a transformative journey, achieving UK top 50 League Table rankings, TEF Gold standard in Teaching and Learning and recognition as the “Connected University”, of, and for, its community and region. 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. Earlier this year we launched our new strategic plan and in leading the design and delivery of the student experience our new Executive Director of Student Services will underpin its success. A member of the University Executive Board, the Executive Director will lead a large team across student development services and our library provision to ensure all services are informed by both business needs and the student voice for all students across all modes of study and across all University campuses.  We are looking for a step change in the use of digital and data analytics in the design and delivery of our services with our Executive Director driving innovation to give Staffordshire a national profile.

Candidates will bring a thorough understanding of higher education, including policy, politics, debates and the future direction of student services. You will be a senior and credible leader with a developing and influential voice in this area. In developing the service in line with our strategic ambitions you will bring a leadership style that encourages a culture of openness, transparency and empowerment throughout the service.  

This is a time of great opportunity for Staffordshire University. If you are keen to pursue a stimulating, challenging and professionally fulfilling career, we want to hear from you.  To view the candidate brochure, please click here
