We are seeking to appoint an outstanding individual to the post of Centre Manager of the Centre for English Language and Foundation Studies in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Bristol. This opportunity is for a one-year fixed term contract as cover for the existing post holder.
You will be the professional services lead in the Centre with responsibility for the provision of high-quality management and administration to support the academic work of the Centre which is experiencing significant growth in relation to both international student recruitment and its Academic Language and Literacy provision.
This is an exciting opportunity for a forward-thinking and enthusiastic manager with experience of working at a senior level in large complex organisations, preferably within the higher education sector. You should have excellent interpersonal, communication and negotiation skills and be a proven strategic thinker with a strong track record in building and maintaining co-operative relationships and working in partnership at all levels.
You will be capable of providing strong leadership during a period of significant change and will have a record of establishing innovative and practical solutions to administration and management challenges within a diverse and complex environment. You will need to have a creative and flexible approach to problem solving as the Centre is atypical in terms of many University policies and procedures.
For an informal discussion please contact Abigail Rogers the current Centre Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The closing date for applications is midnight 29 July 2018.
The interview process will take place on Tuesday 14 August 2018.
