In its state-of-the-art campus, TKH hosts branches of world-class universities, each participating with programmes in their areas of strength, providing an intellectually stimulating, enriching, and global educational experience.

The Coventry University branch at TKH offers selected programmes within the areas of Engineering, Computing, and Design & Media.

Coventry University is a large, dynamic and modern University with a reputation for innovative teaching, research with impact, and partnerships with business and industry that make a global difference. Recognized as one of the UK’s leading universities, Coventry University has been awarded Gold for Outstanding Teaching and Learning in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and five stars for Teaching Excellence in the QS Survey 2017 confirming the breadth of its excellence across teaching, research and other key indicators.

The School of Computing within the Coventry University Branch of the TKH* is looking to recruit Head of School (Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing) to be part of this innovative and forward thinking partnership.

Heads of School are expected to have academic credibility and maintain their academic standing and authority through teaching, research and scholarly activities. They will be expected to develop and build a national and international profile for the School and its subjects, furthering growth whilst enhancing the quality of provision.

As Head of School, the post holder is responsible for the strategic direction, academic and discipline/subject leadership and also for the continued development and growth of the School’s portfolio and the responsibilities of the post are inherently of a management nature and therefore the post holder will be an active and engaged member of the Faculty’s leadership team.

We are looking for an inspirational leader who can take the School forward into the next phase of development in course provision and delivery. This is a great opportunity to join a new academic team in a vibrant market and we are keen to engage with innovative individuals who are passionate about the difference education can make in the world.

TKH offers competitive salaries and excellent benefits packages (this includes fully furnished accommodation, international health insurance, children’s tuition, transportation from/to work with TKH buses, and home flights).
