UWE Bristol

Searching for the next level? So are we...

UWE Bristol is an ambitious university at the heart of one of the UK’s most vibrant cities. We are one of the largest providers of Higher Education in the South West with over 30,000 students, 250,000 alumni and 3,800 staff. We are both globally connected and regionally embedded, with strong employer and partner connections. Our staff and students come from over 160 countries making this a diverse, dynamic and interesting place to work and study. The Guardian placed us 21st in the UK in the 2021 rankings.

As part of driving forward our Strategy 2030 and due to the changeable higher education landscape, we have reflected on our faculty and departmental structures. Following review and reassessment based on
feedback, we are ready to deliver a step change by moving to a college and school structure within the University which will support our ambition.

Our College and School model will allow us to work, think and do beyond and across subject clusters, disciplines and skills sets. To break new ground by breaking down barriers internally. Leading to better
conversations, different perspectives and more joined-up thinking. Making us one cohesive UWE Bristol community where we –

  • Ensure academic purpose sits at our core
  • Strengthen and build on where we have achieved excellence
  • Embrace new opportunities to work across and beyond existing subject clusters
  • Support students through a personalised learning journey
  • Connect with our markets, our place, our sector and the stakeholders and partners we serve
  • Invest in education and research where it drives and delivers impact
  • Play to our collective organisational strengths and embrace diversity of thought and voice
  • Energise, optimise, demystify and simplify our structures, systems, processes and governance

We are therefore looking to strengthen our leadership through the appointment of three new Pro Vice-Chancellors/ Heads of Colleges. As Pro Vice Chancellor and a member of the University’s Directorate, their visionary leadership, passion, innovation and ambitious vision will deliver on key strategic and performance objectives within the context of the University’s strategic aims and values.

With overall responsibility for the performance of the College, they will lead the College Executive Team to deliver excellence across the range of academic activities, advancing education, research and enterprise portfolios and enhancing the student and staff experience. They will be a proven leader, possessing the academic credibility and standing to lead the breadth of disciplines and activity in the College.
