Ulster University is characterised as being the only university in Northern Ireland with campuses across the region, we are research-intensive while being committed to widening access, participation, and success.  As a regional multi-campus university, we are acknowledged for our key role in delivering a pipeline of outstandingly capable graduates and postgraduates into a wide spectrum of workplaces whilst also contributing to societal and cultural enrichment of the region.  As such, our place at the heart of Northern Ireland’s research and development ecosystem is very well established, as is the part we play in economic growth and civic enhancement.

With over 27,000 students and 2,700 staff dispersed across our three main campuses, our regional model is unique as Northern Ireland itself; deeply rooted in our region, whilst making a sustained impact on the global stage.  Building on our centres of excellence, our collaborative partnerships, and our sectoral leadership, Ulster University is making a difference every day to ensure a lasting positive impact for individuals and wider society.

Ulster University is delighted to be working in partnership with Aspen People in the recruitment of a Pro Vice-Chancellor/Executive Dean of Ulster University Business School.

This is significant opportunity for you to join our Senior Leadership Team and to contribute to driving the University forward into a new chapter.

As Pro Vice-Chancellor/Executive Dean of the Business School you will be the primary ambassador for the Faculty externally, and through an understanding of, and in partnership with, the business community you will continue to lead the development of the University’s taught provision, research, and knowledge transfer activities.

You will be the University’s agent within the Faculty, rather than the Faculty’s agent within the Senior Leadership Team supported by Associate Deans and a Director of Faculty Operations.

You will have an inclusive, determined, inspirational, authentic and BRAVE* approach to leadership, while embracing the University’s values of Integrity, Inclusion, Developing Potential, and Collaboration.
