The Opportunity 

We are seeking a Pro Vice-Chancellor to lead our vision for UAL Online. You will provide strategic leadership of the development of digital learning as an increasingly important component of education. You will support the President & Vice-Chancellor and work collaboratively with other members of the Executive Board to develop an online portfolio of ambition and scale, providing vision, and working across the strategic partnerships, business functions, academic and student experience dimensions.

You will lead the development of an entirely new part of the University’s business in the context of UAL’s 10-year strategy: the world needs creativity. UAL Online will enable the University to transform its reach to new audiences, through new product concepts and methods, delivered to the highest quality, reinforcing the global reputation of UAL and its constituent Colleges.

As UAL Online is a new portfolio, its scale, shape and scope will evolve over time.

You will have experience working with and through the various business functions of the University, including technology, marketing, HR, finance and planning. You will understand and articulate the opportunities for online creative education, and the models and modes that will transform access to creative education and lower the barriers to entry for all kinds of learners.

Most importantly, you will enjoy working through partnerships to achieve your goals, whether these are internal or external, adding value and capacity to delivery goals and timescales. You will share our values and possess exceptional communication, collaboration and relationship-building skills, representing UAL with a wide range of stakeholders. 

Working at UAL

The world needs creativity

University of the Arts London (UAL) is a world-leading university for teaching, knowledge exchange and research in art, design, fashion, media and communication and performing arts. We are made up of six renowned colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbledon College of Arts. 

We believe that the world needs creativity. In a volatile era, we aim to find new ways to demonstrate the value of creative disciplines in our response to major forces such as the climate emergency, decolonisation and social equality and complexity. 

Vision for UAL Online

In 2022 UAL published a 10-year strategy: the world needs creativity. Our strategy sets out our ambition to offer creative education to anyone who can benefit from it, of global quality and on a global scale. Transforming UAL in terms of the accessibility of our provision by way of cost, design and mode, will require us to develop a sophisticated and scalable approach to online education. UAL is prepared to make substantial investment in our operations and strategic partnerships to deliver these goals.
