Appointment of the Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Arts, Design and Media

Welcome

Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

Thank you for your interest in this role.

The Faculty:

The Faculty of Arts, Design and Media (ADM) at BCU is one of the most exciting faculties of its kind in the country.  A large, thriving artistic community of over 6000 students and more than 400 staff, it brings together a multiplicity of creative disciplines from Art to Architecture, from Gemmology to Garment Design, and from Jazz to Journalism. The jewel in the crown is the astonishing new £60M Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, headed up by our Principal, Julian Lloyd-Webber – but the Faculty also contains Europe’s largest Jewellery School and the Grade I listed School of Art – while in the Parkside Building we have cutting edge equipment to support our Film and Media programmes.

Part of the AHRC’s £30m Midlands Three Cities doctoral training programme, the Faculty has four high-performing REF Units of Assessment. Staff and students are involved in active partnerships with major national organisations such as the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Shakespeare Company and Tate Liverpool, and there are well-developed TNE programmes in Thailand, Hong Kong and mainland China. All of this evidences the central role of the Faculty in developing artistic and creative practice within the city, the region, and far beyond.  It is a unique and special environment.

As Dean you will lead and manage the Faculty so that it is a thriving and sustainable part of the university.  As Pro Vice-Chancellor you will be part of the University’s Executive Group, helping to shape our strategy, and taking a particular responsibility for the cultural agendas across the city and region.

The institution:

Our university has a deserved reputation as a vibrant, ambitious and successful institution.  The investment of over £260M into the estate has created a truly astonishing environment for students and staff, in the heart of our city. Birmingham itself, with its five universities and 65,000 students is the ‘youngest city in Europe’ with under-25s accounting for nearly 40 per cent of its population. With 50 per cent of our students from a BAME background we are proud of how we represent and positively impact this wonderful city and with Sir Lenny Henry as our Chancellor, we are truly the University for Birmingham.

We offer a broad portfolio that nevertheless includes unique specialist areas of endeavour, including of course the world-class Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.  This distinctive portfolio offers significant opportunities for us to enrich the university experience for all our students. Since I arrived it has been clear to me that there is a shared commitment in the organisation to delivering an outstanding academic experience for all students and while some external indicators do not yet capture that excellence a key priority is to ensure that our academic work achieves full recognition.

Your qualities:

I am looking for a senior leader who can shape and take forward the whole Faculty – from the work of the Conservatoire to our joint campus at BIFCA in Wuhan, China.  You will understand the interconnectivity of the discipline areas, while also being able to respect their individuality.  You will be able to create headroom for the experimentation and excitement that are key elements in a creative endeavour, while also having the financial acumen to oversee the delivery of a budget of over £55M.  You will be able to continue to develop the profile and reputation of our Arts provision in the city, nationally and internationally – while never losing sight of the way in which access to Arts is of equal importance to students across the whole university.  And, as the Faculty’s staff put it: “you will have an appreciation of the Arts and the diversity of the Faculty and a genuine sense and belief that these things matter in today’s world.”

Staff in the Faculty greatly appreciate the visibility of the outgoing PVC and Dean, and you will give the Faculty this strong and visible leadership across all the sites.  You will have a vision for the Faculty, but an understanding of its rich heritage and its current strengths. You will be a key part of the university’s Executive team, and someone who understands how to work as a team-player. And you will be ambitious for the institution’s success and your own success because that success will reflect our commitment to our students.

The role will be challenging. The sector is changing rapidly. Birmingham City is ideally placed to respond to those challenges. You will help us to achieve that potential.

If you would like to contribute your expertise, creativity and energy in this wonderful institution, we would be delighted to hear from you.
