We are seeking to appoint an exceptional academic leader as Dean of our Faculty of Business Computing and Digital Industries. The Faculty makes up one of the University’s three academic units and encompasses the Schools of Business, Computing and Digital Industries. The role is an integral part of the University’s academic leadership team and reports directly to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
As Dean, you will oversee the development and delivery of the University’s vision and strategic plan at Faculty level and its translation into appropriate policies and operational plans. You will represent the University and Faculty externally to enhance the reputation and contribute to the University’s development activities.
You will also be responsible for building the depth and quality of the academic disciplines within the Faculty, building the standing and reputation regionally, nationally and internationally, whilst developing a high-performing team focused on the achievement of the University’s Strategic Plan.
The ideal candidate will have the vision and imagination to exploit the opportunities this multidisciplinary environment offers in relation to curriculum development, innovations in learning and teaching, and research and knowledge exchange activity. This will require a clear strategic thinker with strong influencing skills and an outstanding track record of developing academic provision and delivering change.
