Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Academic Registrar will be responsible for designing and delivering an effective and agile University-wide student and academic administration from enrolment through to graduation. Their remit will span academic administrative policies, procedures and systems, and student records and data. The appointee will be tasked with building a team, and will work closely with the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education), as well as Deans, Directors, and Heads of Department to ensure high-quality service delivery and compliance across the University. The new Academic Registrar will oversee relationships with regulators and professional bodies, such as OfS, QAA, and Ofsted. They will sit on the University’s Senior Operations Team.
Candidates will bring significant technical expertise and senior leadership experience gained in a relevant function in a UK Higher Education environment. Candidates must demonstrate an aptitude for project and people management, and the ability to drive and lead change in the way systems are configured and services are delivered. They will be able to build and manage effective relationships with a range of internal stakeholders, and will be knowledgeable on sector best practice relating to academic administration, student services and data processing.
This is an exceptional opportunity to build and shape a new and critical function that will make a key contribution to the University’s operations.
