Anderson Quigley is proud to be working with the University of Sheffield on the appointment of the Interim Director, English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC)

The University of Sheffield is in the process of moving to a new Schools structure, reducing from 42 academic departments to 21 schools. As part of this transition, a decision has been taken for the ELTC to move from its current home within Student and Academic Services to the Faculty of Arts. The ELTC is one of the largest centres of its type in the UK, with c.150 core staff and an annual turnover of over £9 million.

Given the level of internal change underway, set against an increasingly challenging and unpredictable international recruitment market, we are looking for a highly experienced individual with extensive experience of change management, strong commercial acumen, and a track record of service delivery. As the successful candidate you will play a central role in developing and delivering the high quality, agile, and impactful English language teaching provision that will support the universities ambitions for the coming years.

You will be politically astute, with the ability to engage with senior colleagues and the academic community. You will have strong influencing and negotiating skills together with a detailed understanding of the higher education landscape and the challenges facing the sector.

Reporting to the Deputy Chief Operating Officer you will have overall responsibility for the day to day running of the ELTC as well as leading the centre through its change journey. The post is offered on an initial 9-month basis with a possible extension for another 9 months.
