The opportunity

If you want to make a tangible impact on the future of creativity in the UK, this role offers an unrivalled opportunity to contribute to one of the most innovative parts of the UK’s Higher Education ecosystem.

The newly established role of Director of Strategy and Planning will play a critical part in supporting UAL through a vital phase of growth and development. Sitting within the President and Vice-Chancellor’s Office, you will lead a new Directorate of Strategy and Planning, working with two teams (one to be established) utilising your strong expertise in informed decision making, robust business planning and data infrastructure. Focusing on strategic performance and insight, risk identification, evidence-driven analysis, horizon-scanning, and a policy focus, you will have the capability to support the most innovative ways in which UAL can realise its ambitions.

About you

This is a significant senior leadership role at a pivotal and transformative point in our history. Wherever you are now, you will have the ability to work at pace in an often-ambiguous environment, anticipating risk and trends in the Higher Education and creative sectors and across the broader political environment. You will be driven, yet collaborative, as well as possess highly developed skills to influence and problem-solve. Dynamic, progressive and innovative, you will have a high capacity for self-reflection, emotional maturity and the resilience to help push through the changes UAL requires for the future, while acting as an agent of change for equity and diversity.

Starfish is acting as an employment agency advisor to UAL on this appointment process.

Closing date – Friday, 28 April 2023 at 12 noon.

Application is by submission of a full curriculum vitae (no more than three sides) and a short supporting statement (maximum two sides) that sets out why you are interested in joining the University of the Arts London as the Director of Strategy, Risk and Planning.
