An incredible opportunity to shape our future

A world-class university at the heart of an extraordinary city, we are home to a truly global and diverse community of over 29,000 students and 8,000 staff and are renowned for the excellence, impact and distinctiveness of our research-led learning and teaching. Our experience in bringing together academic research and industrial expertise is helping to solve the world’s biggest problems, as evidenced by our new and pioneering collaborations with ITM Power to advance the hydrogen sector, and Sheffield Nuclear AMRCs collaboration with Rolls Royce to deploy more low carbon energy and ensure greater energy independence.

Our Professional Services team has a vital role in supporting our exciting academic mission and you can therefore play an essential part in our future when you join us as Executive Director of Corporate Services. As a member of the University Executive Board, you will oversee the coordination of eight key Professional Service departments, inspiring a culture of innovation and continuous improvement across a diverse portfolio. Working closely with academic colleagues you will play a critical role in helping shape the future of our institution. Leading a customer focused approach to service improvement and major project delivery during an unprecedented period of change for the Higher Education sector, you will help foster an ambitious, inclusive, collaborative community, underpinned by our ‘One University’ ethos.

With a significant track record of leading change in a large or complex organisation, you will possess the intellectual capacity, emotional intelligence and influencing skills to engage effectively with a broad range of diverse audiences. A relevant management qualification, underpinned by sustained experience of delivering success in one (and ideally more) of the service areas covered by this post will be essential; as will a good understanding of the challenges faced by the Higher Education sector (or the ability to quickly develop such an understanding). Above all, a commitment to the mission, values and ethos of the University, and the communities it serves, will be vital.

This is your chance to make a far-reaching impact on the continuing success of the University and enhance the life outcomes of our students. 

Closing date: Friday 7th January 2022 at 5pm.
