Transforming lives through excellent education

London Metropolitan University is a striving and ambitious institution committed to transforming the lives of its students through excellent education.

London Met is committed to making education available to people from all walks of life, creating and advancing social justice, social mobility and access to opportunity and professions. The University’s graduates benefit personally, but also contribute to society, culture, public service and the economy in all areas of London, the UK and around the world.

It is a diverse institution with 12,000 students who represent the community in which the University is based. More than half of its students are over 25, nearly two thirds are female and there are more than 140 nationalities represented across its three campuses in Aldgate, Holloway and Moorgate.

Under the leadership of Professor John Raftery, the University has significantly improved its position, increasing its NSS scores, its graduate employment rate and the number of graduates in high skilled jobs. It has also secured a stronger financial position with potential for investment in the future. There are exciting opportunities for the University to continue to build on these developments and strengths and to shape a dynamic and contemporary future that that continues to transform the lives of its students.

The University is now seeking to appoint a Vice-Chancellor who will continue this journey, with overall responsibility for the leadership and delivery of the University’s mission and strategy, and who will be a compelling advocate and representative for the institution to a wide range of stakeholders, locally, nationally and internationally.

Genuinely committed to the University’s mission, vision and values, candidates will bring passion and energy to the role, alongside significant experience of organisational leadership within large and complex settings. An innovative and entrepreneurial leader, the successful candidate will bring a strong understanding of the UK and international Higher Education landscape and will be able to articulate insight into the emerging era for higher education providers and a vision for London Met’s position within this.

Further information, including details on how to apply, can be found at quoting reference 3470.

The deadline for applications is midday BST on Monday 2 April 2018.
