The University of Lincoln has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic, fast growing universities in the UK. Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city it has built an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research.

We are seeking an inspirational leader for the Lincoln Law School. The successful post-holder will be a member of the College Management Team comprised of Heads of School, and other senior academic and professional services staff, and will report directly to the PVC/Head of College.
