You will have an understanding of approaches to embedding employability in the curriculum. You will be proactive and collaborative and be comfortable with a data and evidence-led approach to service delivery. You will have excellent communication and influencing skills and be able to establish credibility with academic colleagues across the university.
As a university we aim to create an environment where everyone can thrive and are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We believe that we can only truly meet our objectives if we are reflective of society, so we are passionate about creating a working environment in which you are free to bring your whole self to work.
