Already at the forefront of sector thinking in much of what we do we are looking to recruit a dynamic and collaborative leader who can help shape the future of the University. 

Reporting to one of our Pro Vice-Chancellors, and working closely with other senior colleagues, you will shape and implement the University’s academic strategy, ensuring our continuing success in teaching and learning, business and enterprise, global and academic partnerships and research and innovation.  The role requires a proven academic leader, in a relevant discipline, who can evidence significant achievements in strategy delivery, business planning and the setting of high standards of excellence, all achieved through your exemplary people management skills coupled with your ability to collaborate across our community.  Ambitious for our University and the distinctive character of Sheffield Hallam, you will be a passionate promoter of our values and strategy.
