The University of Greenwich has a history of education, discovery and technological innovation that have contributed to the modern world. We have an exciting future as one of the leading universities in London. The Faculty of Education and Health is looking to appoint a new Faculty Operating Officer (FOO) following promotion of the existing post holder.

The faculty is are based at the beautiful Avery Hill Campus located in the 86-acre Avery Hill Park in Eltham, south-east London, with part of the Faculty moving to the iconic Greenwich Campus in 2018.

The faculty is ambitious and on an upward trajectory, with strong academic and employment outcomes achieved by our students and the amount and quality of our research much of which was judged in the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise as world leading. We are committed to the highest quality of student experience, fostering resilient and able graduates who will contribute to the world in every field.

The role of FOOs is a key to the success of the University’s strategy. They play leading roles in managing complex faculty operations. With large numbers of on-campus students who sit alongside students and partnerships across three continents and several time zones, the strategic and operational challenges are significant. Staff teams are large (up to 300) and include specialist research units, international support operations, employability offices and technicalfacilities. The FOO directly manages some key support services and acts as the faculties’ client for services provided centrally by the University, as well as working collaboratively across the University on institution-wide projects.

If you an experienced manager, with experience across different functional areas, and with the interpersonal skills to achieve outcomes in a complex organisation, this role could be a stimulating challenge.
