We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven Head of Disability Services to lead our vibrant Disability Service and Access Centre. The purpose of Disability Services is to support student retention, achievement and satisfaction by providing a range of services to support students with disabilities. Student Support Services support students who are experiencing life and wellbeing challenges and enables those students to develop skills that will enable them to manage those challenges and allow them to participate fully in academic life and meet their full potential. Disability Services encompasses disability services, dyslexia services and an access centre.

The post of Head of Disability Services is responsible for contributing to the strategic planning, day to day delivery, management and development of the Service and for providing expertise and advice to the University on a range of disabilities.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London. Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post-1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of southwest London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.

To find out more information about the role and what we’re looking for, visit the Working at Roehampton section of our website where you will find full details, how to apply, as well as further information about the benefits of working for us. 

The closing date for completed applications is: Sunday 17 June

It is expected that interviews will be held on: Tuesday 26 June

The University is an equal opportunities and ‘disability confident’ employer.
