About you

As Head of School, you will be responsible to the Head of College for the highly effective operation and development of your School, ensuring that this aligns with the University Strategy. You will be an accomplished communicator who can lead, inspire, and motivate colleagues across the School, and, crucially, you must be capable of leading change and delivering against the strategic priorities of the University.
