Coventry University is a global education group that empowers our students, people, and communities to transform their lives and the world around. We are a large, diverse, and enterprising institution that strives to develop high-quality education while addressing real world challenges and social and economic needs through our innovation, research, and enterprise.

We are proud of our origins and home in the industrial city of Coventry, which serves as a reminder that our offer must reflect the needs and aspirations of our students, learners, and employers. Due to substantial growth, we are no longer constrained by the geography of our name, delivering high-quality education in London and Scarborough in the UK, Wrocław in Poland, as well as through our ever-growing network global hubs and partnerships around the world.

Innovation is one of our core values: we embrace change to navigate the ever-changing dynamics of education. In establishing the next phase of the Group’s development, we are reshaping our current Faculty structure, creating three Colleges. The new College of Engineering, Environment, and Science will consist of five schools: Mechanical Engineering; Energy, Construction, and Environment; Life Sciences; Computing, Mathematics and Data Science; and Future Transport Engineering – joining together to create a new 9000-student College.

We are seeking an exceptional Academic Dean and Head of College who shares our values and beliefs to join us and bring the strategic vision for the diversity of disciplines across the new College to life.

With an excellent history of providing high-quality education driven by clear teaching and learning metrics, candidates will have proven leadership skills and experience in delivering substantial change. Blending a commercial mindset with an inclusive approach to leadership, candidates will have an unwavering commitment to delivering an outstanding student experience, student attainment, and industry-leading graduate outcomes.
