We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in the economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding individual to lead Newcastle University Business School (NUBS).

This is a senior leadership role within the Faculty and University. We are looking for someone with the vision and ambition to build on the School’s strong standing in research, education and engagement, to enhance cross-subject and cross-disciplinary collaboration, and develop a distinctive and future-focused portfolio of degree programmes enabling our students to achieve exceptional outcomes. Advancing the School’s global profile and networks will be important, as will supporting the School to maintain its triple accredited status and its discipline-based accreditations. 

We are looking for a leader with a strong commitment to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion, who will build on the disciplinary strengths and specialisms in the School, and foster a culture based on shared values of collegiality, inclusivity, trust, and respect. Strong candidates will have experience of leading change in an accredited environment. The successful candidate will be someone who will develop and communicate a shared vision and purpose for the School, and engage, motivate and empower colleagues to achieve co-owned collective goals. They will act as an excellent ambassador and advocate for the School both internally and externally.
