People, purpose and place sit at the heart of UWE Bristol’s Strategy 2030. We are an institution always striving to improve – from extending our impact through strategic collaborations and interdisciplinary partnerships, to refining structures, systems, processes and governance to be faster, more agile and more effective.
Bristol Law School is part of the University’s College of Business and Law. Housed in a £55 million building completed in 2017, the College combines a commitment to outstanding teaching and research with a real-world focus on collaboration with business, the professions and the community. It is proud to be at the forefront of the disciplines in which it specialises and is determined that its work promotes ethical practices and has a genuine, lasting impact on the world, as well as equipping all its students for confident and successful futures. Fundamental to the College’s future success will be working closely with other Colleges to deliver relevant teaching and research programmes.
Reporting to the newly appointed PVC & Head of College, Professor Yvonne Beach, the successful candidate will lead a School comprising of over 2,000 students and around 70 academic staff.
The Dean and Head of School is a key leadership and management role, shaping strategy for Bristol Law School and ensuring its success. Priorities include: building a collaborative culture, reflecting the wider goals of the College; maintaining growth in teaching and research activities with a focus on quality; and developing the School’s profile, ensuring it is the preferred destination for education and research in legal practice regionally.
You must be enterprising, innovative, inclusive, ambitious and collaborative. You will be able to evidence achievement as an empowering, engaging and values-led leader with emotional intelligence and a commitment to interdisciplinarity. A strategic mindset, combined with an appetite to develop relationships on behalf of the School with internal and external stakeholders, is important.
We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian, Multiple Heritage or Other Minority Ethnic candidates as we are currently under-represented in these areas within UWE Bristol however all appointments are made strictly on individual merit.
The closing date for receipt of applications is midnight on Sunday 21 May 2023.
