The Sino-British College (SBC) is currently recruiting a new Executive Dean and is looking for an exceptional candidate to take on this unique and exciting leadership opportunity. 

About SBC 

SBC is a university college in Shanghai. It was established in 2006 as a joint venture between the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) and nine members of The Northern Consortium UK (NCUK): the University of Bradford, the University of Huddersfield, the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Liverpool John Moores University, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Salford, The University of Sheffield, and Sheffield Hallam University. 

SBC exists to be an international gateway, specialising in higher education pathways to and from Shanghai and the UK for students, faculty and organisations worldwide. The College seeks to create and sustain an environment for all students, staff, and stakeholders that is underpinned by the SBC values of responsible leadership; enterprise and innovation; and cultural empathy. 

SBC is an embedded college of USST, a government-owned university operating under the direction of the Shanghai Government. SBC is operated and governed by Chinese law. However, the quality assurance and validation of British qualifications remain entirely the province of NCUK and the partner universities. 

This role represents, not only an outstanding career development prospect, but also an opportunity to represent the UK Higher Education sector and further develop this important partnership.  It’s an exciting and interesting time for the College and a unique chance for the successful candidate to drive the College forward and shape its future in line with an ambitious Five-Year Plan. 

The Opportunity 

This role presents a chance for the right candidate to test their leadership skills within a complex stakeholder environment.  They will need to drive change whilst engaging and bringing key stakeholders with them.  Political and cultural sensitivity are critical and they will need to embed partnership at the heart of this joint venture, whilst at the same time raising the academic quality and standards of SBC. 

The opportunity is offered initially on a fixed-term basis (either employed or as part of an agreed secondment). The appointment will be for an initial 5-year period, subject to successful review after 3-years. 

The successful candidate will have the privilege of leading a College which has a transformational impact on its students’ lives and has been cited by the QAA as a model example of overseas collaboration. For a highly credible and effective leader, this post potentially represents an opportunity of a lifetime. 

Closing date: 26th January 2022 (early applications are encouraged)
