The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world's largest law schools. With an impressive history dating back to 1876, we employ over 900 staff and have over 14,000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, along with an alumni network in excess of 100,000. We were the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and in 2012 we gained university title. In 2016, we opened our leading Business School, further enhancing our reputation as a full service legal, business and educational training specialist, operating from fourteen campuses throughout the UK, Berlin and Hong Kong.

The Nottingham Campus was launched in 2019 and is exceptionally well placed as a legal and tech hub within the Midlands, with strong links into local firms and businesses. Located in the heart of the city, adjacent to Nottingham Castle and the arena, our Nottingham Campus sits within the immediate vicinity of local law firms and businesses. The Campus is central to our core objectives; building strong connections throughout the city and creating programmes that provide students with practical skills and experience. In addition to offering a range of courses across the legal education portfolio, we also offer programmes linked to our internationally renowned Business School, providing students with the benefit of a full suite of courses, delivered in a practical, interactive and engaging way that uniquely differentiates us from other institutions.

At this exciting point in our journey, we are now seeking to appoint our new Dean of the Nottingham Campus, a truly inspirational leadership role which will see the successful appointee driving the effective delivery of the programmes and smooth running of the Campus. The Dean will oversee management and leadership of the Campus Executive Team and will be instrumental in creating a Campus plan which drives strategic growth, new programmes, successful recruitment and an exemplary student experience.

If you have demonstrable senior management experience within a legal, educational or commercial environment with evidence of success in influencing strategy, business and academic development, we would be delighted to hear from you.
