Executive Recruitment: Chief Executive Officer & Vice Chancellor

Chief Executive Officer & Vice Chancellor

At the University of Northampton, we do things a bit differently. We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. What matters most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world, and that’s why in 2012 we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus. This is a key differentiator for the University of Northampton which puts social impact at the heart of everything we do.

The University of Northampton is a place where innovation and being bold about what we do and how we do it is not only encouraged; it is expected. We have a sector leading track record of doing new and bold things. Our new CEO & Vice Chancellor will be expected to keep driving us to be even bolder and ambitious.
