University of Hull

Attractive salary 

The University of Hull is on a journey, one that is led by our commitment to delivering excellent research and a fantastic student experience. Over the last few years the higher education landscape has altered dramatically, and it is imperative as a University that we do not stand still. We are committed to evolving our approach to ensure that we meet the needs of our students, regional, national and global collaborators and partners, both now and in the future.

Part of the Faculty of Arts, Cultures and Education, our School of Arts brings together traditional and contemporary arts from across the disciplines of English, Drama, Music, Film and Digital Media. The School is a vibrant hub for learning, teaching, research and the creation of artistic outputs – with an exciting range of performance and production opportunities for students, staff and high-profile visiting artists. In a truly collaborative environment, our students learn with and from those who influence their fields of study and research, as well as continuing to perform and practise their craft on a global stage. A jewel in the crown of the School is the multi-million-pound development, Middleton Hall – a world-class arts venue incorporating a 400-seat concert hall, industry standard recording and rehearsal spaces, and much more.

With a keen focus on performance and pursuing excellence in all that we do, we are looking for a new Head of School to provide strong and ambitious leadership to help continue our growth and build on our interdependent academic offer. This is a high- profile leadership appointment that requires both academic credibility and the ability to provide leadership and vision in promoting excellence in learning and teaching as well as research and enterprise, creating an environment in which these can flourish. 

This is a time of great opportunity for the University of Hull. If you are keen to pursue a stimulating, challenging and professionally fulfilling career, we want to hear from you.
