Thank you for enquiring about this exciting opportunity as Head of Digby Stuart College, one of the four constituent colleges of the University of Roehampton. The College and the University share a vision, sense of purpose and mission that underpin everything we do together. The College and University are committed to developing all of our students as individuals, supporting them in an inclusive community of learning and equipping them with the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need to lead a successful career and fulfilling life when they graduate, whatever path they choose to take. In addition to supporting our students, the College also fulfils a leading role in enhancing the experience of staff colleagues, and contributing to a strong sense of community across our campus, both at Digby Stuart College and across the University.
The Head of Digby Stuart College is responsible for the leadership of the College and for ensuring its continued success. Broadly, the Head of College will:
• Maintain and develop the ethos and values of the College inherited from the providing body, the Society of the Sacred Heart, an international Catholic community of women with a focus on education.
• Oversee the development of a community that meets the needs of students and staff, both residential and non-residential, of faith or none, and which enriches their experience of University life and the College and University’s academic
culture, and supports student success.
• Support and promote a collegiate environment, collaborating and co-ordinating effectively with the other Colleges and University departments
• Enhance relationships and connections between the College, the Governing Body, the local community, the University, the Society of the Sacred Heart and the Catholic Church at a national and international level.
The role is part-time (0.5 FTE) at University Grade 9. The role may be combined with an existing role at the University. For external applicants, an additional 0.5 FTE maybe available as a member of staff of the University depending on the candidate’s expertise and resourcing needs. The University would also consider offering the post-holder an honorary position within one of our Research and Knowledge Exchange Centres, which would be unpaid but facilitate collaboration with the University’s academic community.
The post-holder will normally live at or within easy reach of the College. The University will make a financial contribution to the successful candidate’s accommodation costs.
