A vibrant community of academics, students and professionals, the University of York is a world-leading institution with a reputation for excellent interdisciplinary research and outstanding teaching and learning. York has a unique heritage, distinctive profile and welcoming culture. Every aspect of life at the University is informed by our founding principles of excellence, equality and opportunity.
With over 17,000 students, 4,000 staff, and a turnover of £367 million, the University makes significant contributions to society and culture through its research, impact and engagement, and addresses some of the key challenges of our time. The University is making significant investments to enhance student life and education, research and its translation, and the fabric and estate of the institution. The future will demand continued investment in all of these areas, alongside a bold agenda for a new strategic plan in the context of considerable uncertainties in the sector.
We are now seeking our next Vice-Chancellor and President and inviting candidates who will bring strategic vision and flair, along with an alignment to the founding principles and ethos of the University of York. The University and its Council share the aspiration that York should become a beacon for inclusivity and diversity; it is essential that the next Vice-Chancellor and President shares this ambition and these values. Leadership skills must combine with an open and values-based approach to engaging with the University community. Candidates will need to demonstrate experience of challenging the status quo, inspiring colleagues in the process of making choices, identifying resources and pursuing ambitious goals.
We particularly welcome applications from female candidates, and candidates from minority ethnic backgrounds, who are under-represented at senior management level in the institution.
