The appointee will be a key member of the leadership team of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, supporting the Executive Dean and senior colleagues in the planned strategic growth of the Faculty.    

The successful candidate will bring significant academic leadership in Law (or a related discipline). They will have experience in strategic planning, workforce planning, and people development, can motivate and inspire staff, and develop a professional and collaborative culture across the School, fostering a vibrant research and scholarship environment. Candidates will demonstrate excellent organisational, communication, and interpersonal skills. They will be an ambitious and outstanding academic leader, equally committed to research, teaching, and the student experience. This is an exciting opportunity to lead and grow a high-performing school and shape its strategic direction.
