Job Description

With heritage dating back to 1872, Aberystwyth University is a unique institution located on the beautiful West Wales coast.  The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 named Aberystwyth University “University of the Year for Teaching Quality” and the 2018 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) awarded the Institution Gold status.  The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) saw 95% of Aberystwyth’s research classified as “internationally recognised standard or higher”, which is testament to the importance of research activities within the University’s overall plans.

Aberystwyth Business School is home to exceptional teaching and research across a broad range of subjects including business, economics and management.  Many courses are accredited by esteemed bodies such as CIMA, ACCA, CIPFA and AMBA, which contributes to exceptionally high levels of employability for students at all levels.  There is a considerable amount of international outreach of benefit to both staff and students in terms of the study and research opportunities that it affords; this is further supported by strong relationships with regional statutory bodies including the National Assembly for Wales.

The post of Head of Aberystwyth Business School is an excellent opportunity for a talented academic leader to assume responsibility for such a dynamic and forward-thinking School.  With personal academic credibility, they will be a skilled people-manager with a compelling personal vision for the future and the ability to put that into practice.  A passion for the student experience is critical, as is the ability to spot opportunities for partnership and collaboration, both externally and within the University.  The School is part of the Faculty of Business and Physical Sciences, which offers plentiful scope to work with colleagues from other disciplines including mathematics and computer science.
