The Univer­sity of Bed­ford­shire Busi­ness School is at the fore­front of ex­pand­ing op­por­tu­nity and ac­cess in higher ed­u­ca­tion. With a strong fo­cus on the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence, we are com­mit­ted to ex­cel­lent, in­clu­sive teach­ing that pre­pares our stu­dents for pro­fes­sional em­ploy­ment and in­spires them to achieve their am­bi­tions. We de­liver across a range of busi­ness, man­age­ment and law sub­ject ar­eas and are cur­rently ex­pand­ing pro­vi­sion through new part­ner­ships and a de­vel­op­ing port­fo­lio of higher and de­gree ap­pren­tice­ships. Our teach­ing, re­search and civic en­gage­ment makes a real im­pact across busi­ness, pub­lic ser­vices and our com­mu­nity and in ac­knowl­edge­ment of this we have re­cently be­come the first Busi­ness School in the UK to be recog­nised by the EFMD for their pres­ti­gious Busi­ness School Im­pact Sys­tem (BSIS) la­bel.

Fol­low­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment by the Univer­sity in trans­form­ing the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence, we are now seek­ing a Head of De­part­ment to pro­vide strate­gic lead­er­ship for the De­part­ment of Law and Fi­nance. The De­part­ment has been suc­cess­ful in trans­form­ing both its postgrad­u­ate and un­der­grad­u­ate port­fo­lio, in en­hanc­ing the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence, in de­vel­op­ing TNE and aca­demic part­ner­ships and in demon­strat­ing im­pact across re­search, en­ter­prise and teach­ing de­liv­ery across the lo­cal, re­gional and global com­mu­ni­ties it serves. With new and en­hanced PSRB ac­cred­i­ta­tions and a strong track record of com­mu­nity en­gage­ment, the new Head of De­part­ment will pro­vide lead­er­ship to drive fur­ther progress and de­vel­op­ment.

As Head of De­part­ment you will have strate­gic re­spon­si­bil­ity for shap­ing and de­liv­er­ing an in­no­va­tive, re­search in­formed cur­ricu­lum that con­nects stu­dents to a broad range of learn­ing, em­ploy­ment and re­search op­por­tu­ni­ties. You will work with our de­liv­ery part­ners across dis­trib­uted cam­puses both in the UK and over­seas and with PSRBs and other ex­ter­nal stake­hold­ers to drive our ex­ter­nal en­gage­ment.

As a mem­ber of the Fac­ulty Ex­ec­u­tive Group, you will work closely with the Ex­ec­u­tive Dean to de­velop and im­ple­ment your port­fo­lio of ac­tiv­ity. With out­stand­ing lead­er­ship qual­i­ties and an abil­ity to mo­ti­vate and in­spire teams you will have a strong track record of aca­demic man­age­ment in the HE sec­tor, ex­pe­ri­ence of line manag­ing staff, of part­ner­ship de­vel­op­ment and ide­ally higher and de­gree ap­pren­tice­ship de­vel­op­ment and de­liv­ery. Tar­get and per­for­mance driven, you will also be a good com­mu­ni­ca­tor, col­lab­o­ra­tor and net­worker, ca­pa­ble of work­ing flex­i­bly to sup­port the School’s di­verse op­er­a­tions and mar­kets and trav­el­ling to a range of UK and in­ter­na­tional lo­ca­tions in line with the re­quire­ments of the post. As a se­nior mem­ber of staff you will also con­trib­ute to cross Univer­sity ac­tiv­i­ties.
