We are seeking experienced senior leaders to join the University in a number of leadership appointments.

Introduction from Vice-Chancellor Professor Ebrahim Adia:

I was very proud to take on the role of Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wolverhampton in October of this year.

The origins of the University go back nearly 200 years when it was established as a Tradesmen’s and Mechanic’s Institute in 1827. These origins continue to influence the mission of the University, its character, courses, research, knowledge exchange and role as an anchor institution.

We are a University proudly rooted in our local and regional community – a University which offers opportunity to all regardless of background and with the ability to benefit. 

Our students judge their experience at the University as very good, for example, in this year’s National Student Survey, the University ranked 29th in the country for student positivity.

More significantly, 89% of our graduates are employed or in education 15 months after graduation and 77% work in the West Midlands region. This is social mobility in action and shows the tremendous impact the University makes to the local and regional economy and community.

We are now planning for our future and our continued role as a significant engine of economic growth to the local economy through the development of our new University Strategy and look forward to appointing two new Heads of School.

We are looking for strong, visible leaders who can help to translate the new University Strategy into reality by developing and leading a high performing team that delivers exceptional outcomes.  You will inspire and excite those around you promoting a transparent and transformational working and learning environment that enables staff and students to achieve their full potential.

We are looking for leaders that are fully aligned to the values of the University and genuinely committed to providing opportunity and social mobility. You will hold a collaborative mind-set, understanding that the success of the University is built on partnership and collaboration with our staff, students and external stakeholders, and an experience of delivering on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
