We currently have an exciting opportunity for an established academic to join UWE Bristol as Faculty Academic Director for Strategic Partnerships.

The role: Reporting to the Associate Dean for Strategic Partnerships, this post is a key leadership and management role within the Faculty of Business and Law. The role holder will have faculty-wide responsibility for a portfolio relating to academic partnerships and internationalisation, the enhancement of the international student experience and the provision and promotion of global opportunities for staff and students.

You will work closely with the Faculty Executive to develop a strategy for the portfolio and will be responsible for ensuring the successful implementation of that plan, including the delivery through the leadership of project teams.

The student experience is at the heart of everything we do and is core to the UWE 2030 strategy and the Director of Strategic Partnerships will be key to delivering an excellent student experience for all in the Faculty of Business and Law. You will therefore be expected to work with departments right across the faculty and also with relevant professional services to ensure the successful delivery of UWE-wide Student Experience strategies and policies for all of our students studying at UWE campuses and at academic partners in the UK and overseas.

About you: We are looking for an accomplished manager with proven leadership skills within a comparable higher education setting who has a substantial record of achievement as an academic and proven ability to inspire and engage teams in new and innovative pedagogies and technologies. You should also be able to demonstrate extensive experience in fostering meaningful relationships and effective partnership working with external organisations and professional bodies combined with a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues and demands facing the Higher Education sector.
