Manchester Metropolitan University has developed a new vision and a clear strategy. Its ambition is simple: to be the best modern university in the sector, where students and staff alike are equipped with every resource to excel, and play a full and rewarding role in strengthening Manchester’s enviable reputation as a global university city. With a prominent position at the centre of the Northern Powerhouse, a refreshed academic strategy, a strong financial platform, an award-winning estate, and ambitious investment plans, few universities could be better placed to succeed.
In delivering this success, the University requires commitment and innovation underpinned by first-rate governance. As a result, the University is seeking to appoint two exceptional new Board Members with the potential to take on senior positions, including the role of Chair of the Board. Individuals will therefore bring the requisite intellectual capacity, commercial acumen and strategic expertise to act as critical friends and to support the institution in a non- executive capacity to drive forward its ambitions.
Proven experience of operating as a non-executive for an organisation of comparable complexity will be essential; as will the ability to engage with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders in order to be highly effective ambassadors for the institution. This is an exciting opportunity to leverage the regional, national and international profile of a truly progressive University during a period of unprecedented change for the UK higher education sector.
