Arden University’s ambition is to make Higher Education more accessible, engaging and beneficial to people everywhere. Securing taught degree-awarding powers and university status has reiterated Arden's position as a progressive organisation with plans to disrupt the HE sector through innovation. With around 6,500 online students, over 50% of whom are overseas, and new campuses in the UK and abroad set to open, Arden University is growing.

Arden University wishes to appoint a Head of External Regulation and Compliance who is cognisant of the legal and regulatory requirements within which an independent UK university operates and can demonstrate extensive relevant experience within a regulatory environment.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and experienced administrator with the proven ability to manage staff, to negotiate and influence across an organisation, and to build effective relationships with key internal and external stakeholders. Experience of working with HEFCE, HESA, ESFA and/or QAA will be advantageous. A commitment to achieving the highest possible quality of learning opportunities and academic standards for students in higher education is essential.
