Ref: 78740-077
Permanent Position 

We are looking for an outstanding leader with the ambition and drive to develop and lead on strategic planning at the world-leading University of Warwick. As one of Warwick's most senior professionals, you will oversee our social inclusion activities; interpret and influence policy locally, nationally and internationally; and you will lead on developing our global partnership strategy. 

This will be one of the most influential roles at Warwick, enabling you to significantly influence our future. You will work closely with key colleagues across Warwick, including our Registrar and your fellow Directors, to make this happen. 

We have rapidly become one of the most successful young universities in the UK. With a dynamic and forward-thinking culture, and a reputation for combining innovation with the relentless pursuit of excellence, we are firmly established within the top ten of all UK university rankings and currently 57th in the world (QS World University Rankings 2018). 

In the Government Teaching Excellence Framework we were awarded silver status. This shows we are a university that 'consistently exceeds rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education' and achieves 'excellent outcomes for its students...with an institutional culture that facilitates, recognises and rewards excellent teaching'. 

We are proud of the links we have with our home city of Coventry, and with communities across Warwickshire and the West Midlands. We are equally proud of the impact we have on skills, social mobility, well-being and economic development. But we are ambitious enough to look beyond our immediate surroundings: we recently opened an office in London, adding to our presence in The Shard, and we are developing plans for a full Warwick campus in California. The proposed campus will be built on a greenfield site in the Placer County regional of Greater Sacramento, mirroring the birth of our original UK campus just over 50 years ago. 

Our global relevance is growing, with one-third of our alumni living overseas, and increasingly strategic partnerships in China, continental Europe and Australia. As our next Director of Strategy and Policy you will take our global partnership strategy to the next level.
