The University of Dundee has a clear mission – to transform lives, locally and globally, by the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. It does this through world-class teaching, pioneering research, and work that has social, cultural and economic impact.
With an annual turnover of over £250m, 17,000 students and over 3,000 staff, the University of Dundee sits at the heart of city that is in the midst of transformational change – highlighted by the opening in 2018 of V&A Dundee and the forthcoming arrival of the Eden Project – making it one of the best places in the UK to live, work and study.
The University of Dundee’s new University Strategy to 2027 focuses on Dundee’s standing as a triple intensive university seeking to bring excellence to all that it does - with research, education and engagement equally weighted.
Your priorities will include:
The new Director of Strategic Change & Delivery will embrace the University of Dundee’s values, sense of place, and commitment to building an inclusive culture, working with the leadership team and the University community.
The successful candidate will head the University’s unprecedented plans for change and the associated delivery team and strategic planning function, ensuring a seamless approach to the implementation of the University’s new strategy and the monitoring of its delivery. This will include a significant programme of strategic change projects and the alignment and integration of strategy with the rolling five-year annual planning and budgeting process.
Who we’re looking for:
Candidates will have an outstanding track record of leading and delivering positive, transformational, strategic change in a large and complex organisation, ideally within a higher education or similar environment. They will have sophisticated and highly-attuned skills of tact, diplomacy and communication as well as the ability to manage and influence senior stakeholders across internal organisational boundaries and with external bodies.
We are one of the UK’s leading universities – internationally recognised for our expertise across a range of disciplines and research breakthroughs in multiple areas, including science, medicine and engineering, amongst many others.

We also have campuses at Ninewells Hospital and in Kirkcaldy which are easily accessible via local transport links.
The diversity of our staff and students helps to make the University of Dundee a UK university of choice for undergraduate, postgraduate and distance learning.
