If you are inspired to lead, this is the perfect chance to take centre stage as a Deputy Head of School, joining a vibrant community of scholars, researchers and practitioners in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities which has a global profile and a heritage of quality built up over 175 years.

This key role is an exciting chance to continue developing academically while supporting the Head of School in delivery of an ambitious strategic vision, which defines the future of Art and Design education at Coventry and shapes the future of its disciplines through our national and international collaborations.

As Deputy Head, you will drive forward the School’s contribution to the University’s Corporate Plan, assuming lead responsibility for the School’s day-to-day operational management and requirements. You will represent the School internally and externally and implement policies at School level. Liaising closely with the Associate Heads of School and other school staff, you will support the school’s aims, overseeing staff and resource management, and ensuring colleagues receive the training they need.

This role also offers a unique opportunity to play a lead role in the contribution the Faculty of Arts and Humanities makes to Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture. Particularly through its external partnerships with the creative, cultural (and other) industries at a national and international level.

Coventry University provides opportunities for both career and personal development, a generous holiday allowance and pension, as well as flexible working options. We will also consider assistance for those wishing to relocate to the Coventry area.
