Post Ref :

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has a reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative higher education institutions.

Rigorous implementation of our 2015 – 2020 Strategic Plan has led to significant recognition for our NTU community, culminating in our receipt of the University of the Year Award in the Guardian Awards 2019. This prestigious accolade comes after NTU received the coveted Times Higher Education University of the Year 2017 and the influential Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year 2018. It also follows the University soaring to 12th place in the Guardian University Guide 2020 and achieving the TEF gold standard.

In shaping our next strategy, we are re-imagining what a university can be. We will be taking bold and distinctive steps to drive even greater excellence. To support this vision, and with the departure of the incumbent to a VC role, we are recruiting a new Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic Quality and Development. With complete strategic oversight and ownership of a very broad-based brief, this is an ideal role for a creative academic leader who sees the possibilities to enhance further the learning experience of over 32,000 students from the broadest range of backgrounds. We are seeking an individual who can shape a brave, new vision for the future of our teaching and learning; driving its delivery in exciting and impactful ways.  

A key part of the University Executive Team, this is a unique opportunity to contribute to the ongoing success of one of the UK’s fastest-rising universities, ensuring we maintain our place at the forefront of academic quality, development and innovation. If you have the insights, experience and ambition we are looking for, we would be keen to hear from you.
