Lancaster University is one of the UK’s top universities, the 2018 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide’s University of the Year, ranked in the top 10 across all major UK league tables and in the top 150 internationally in the QS world rankings.
Equally impressive is our record in supporting our students and graduates to progress into positive graduate destinations. Our latest results in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide underline our ambition and achievement and place Lancaster University 3rd in the UK for graduate prospects. We are now seeking to appoint a dynamic and forward-thinking Director of Employability to lead our Careers and Employability Service and build on this excellent position. The principal teams of the Service for Faculty Engagement, Employer Engagement and Student Engagement work with key stakeholders, including students, graduates, academic curriculum managers and professional service colleagues and graduate employers, to provide a high quality, connected and relevant range of careers and employability services.
Within an increasingly complex external environment, this post provides a unique opportunity for you to play a leading role in shaping the future of careers and employability provision at Lancaster University. As a member of the Divisional Student Based Services Leadership Team, you will be able to exploit the synergies between careers and employability services with other areas of support for students and work in partnership with dedicated and professional colleagues to lead the delivery of a wide range of student services.
Reporting to the Director of Students, Education and Academic Services and working closely with the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), the Provost and senior teams in the Faculties you will ensure the delivery of the University Employability Strategy across the University. This provides an exciting opportunity to make a difference within a sector leading and ambitious organisation.
This full time post is being offered on an interim basis for 12 months in the first instance.
We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
