Executive Dean of Social Sciences
Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has a reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative higher education institutions.

Rigorous implementation of our 2015 – 2020 Strategic Plan has led to significant recognition for our NTU community, culminating in our receipt of the University of the Year Award in the Guardian Awards 2019. This prestigious accolade comes after NTU received the coveted Times Higher Education University of the Year 2017 and the influential Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year 2018. It also follows the University soaring to 12th place in the Guardian University Guide 2020 and achieving the TEF gold standard.

In shaping our next strategy, we are re-imagining what a university can be. We will be taking bold and distinctive steps to drive even greater excellence. To support this vision, we are now seeking to recruit an exceptional new Executive Dean of Social Sciences. The School is broad, and spans a range of disciplines, including Politics, International Relations and Sociology; Criminology and Criminal Justice; Psychology; Social Work, Care and Community; the Nottingham Institute of Education and the Institute of Health and Allied Professions. By connecting these disciplines in impactful and innovative ways we seek to engender a vibrant and inclusive learning and teaching environment grounded in scholarship, research, and professional practice. Through well-developed partnerships and a sustained focus on external engagement, our staff and students shape civic, cultural and social life.

A superb strategic leader, with exceptional credentials in their field, our new Executive Dean will bring the clarity and creativity of vision and proven track record of delivery to ensure our future success. Reporting directly to a Deputy Vice-Chancellor and forming a key part of the University Leadership and University Executive Teams, they will also contribute to the ongoing development of one of the UK’s fastest-rising universities; ensuring we maintain our place at the forefront of academic excellence and innovation. If you have the insights, experience and ambition we are looking for, we would be keen to hear from you.
