At Edinburgh Napier University, we understand that it is because of our diversity that our community becomes smarter thinkers, better decision makers and braver innovators.

Our Wellbeing and Inclusion team provides high quality, professional services to support potential and current students from their initial enquiry to Edinburgh Napier University through to graduation.

Furthermore, your experience at management level in a Further or Higher Education establishment will allow you to lead, evaluate and enhance the University’s Disability Inclusion service, act as line manager for the Disability Inclusion team and lead the on-going development of service delivery across our campuses and online.

What we will need from you:
