As the Dean, you’ll have a broad responsibility to drive and support our 2020 strategic aims: building our academic reputation, providing an exceptional student experience, working closely with industry and growing the School’s income.
You’ll set out your own vision and strategy for the school and provide the leadership to help us attract, retain and motivate the best possible academic staff, instilling the right behaviours and inspiring outstanding performance. You’ll look to drive the growth of our research, public engagement and enterprise and make sure this is matched by a suitably high profile.
