We are looking to appoint a Deputy Director to support the Director in leading and managing the work of the Roehampton Business School London in developing world-class research and excellent education for students.

We are particularly looking for applicants with substantial senior management experience and with a well-rounded understanding of current business and management education, policy and thinking, and the ability to translate that into strategic and operational planning for the Business School.

The Deputy Director will work positively with the Director and academic colleagues to coordinate and create the platform to achieve successful School and programme accreditations, NSS performance and research assessments. In particular coordinating academic staff activities or directing across the portfolio of taught Programmes will be key priorities for the person appointed. The Deputy Director will engage at a senior level with accreditation and professional bodies, organisations and academic partners and contribute to building our national and international profile.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers. We are ranked the best modern university in London in major UK league tables and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.
