The University of Nottingham is a world-leading comprehensive research-intensive institution with a distinctive and pioneering global platform. The University’s ethos is built on the premise that education and research transforms lives and societies around the world. This drives a commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and graduate outcomes, and to unlocking the potential of 45,000 students across campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia. At the University of Nottingham, the culture is ambitious, simultaneously creative and collaborative, and without boundaries. Looking ahead to the period 2020 and beyond, the University is in the process of developing our new 21st Century global strategy, which will undoubtedly seek to build on our commitment to place the student experience at the heart of everything we do.

We are now seeking to appoint a Deputy Registrar to lead the University’s many activities relating to the student experience, and deputise effectively and consistently for the Registrar. The Deputy Registrar will work closely with the PVC Education and Student Experience and the Faculty Operations Directors in creating an integrated, informed, responsive, and excellence-focused approach to optimising the student experience.

With overarching leadership responsibility for Student Services, Careers and Employability, Sport, Campus Life and Residential Life, the Deputy Registrar will be working with an outstanding team of senior managers to embed planned cultural change across these services, centrally and in schools and faculties, to create the co-ordinated, effective and high quality service delivery expected by our students and staff.

Candidates will bring experience of leading relevant professional services in a complex setting and will be able to evidence a track record of change management and service improvement.
