The University of Birmingham is a global top 100 University, in the heart of an ambitious city. The University encourages and empowers people to turn ingenuity into reality and make important things happen.

The University has developed a new food and retail brand, “Food Fellows”, which promotes an excellent food and beverage offering, tailored to our students, staff and visitors, delivered via a blend of inhouse, household favourites and independent operators. To support this offering we are developing a Food and Retail Hub; a space where students, staff and campus visitors can socialise whilst sampling different world cuisines, all with sustainability and authenticity at the heart, and purchase a range of attractive goods and services.

The University is searching for a senior leader with experience in managing large scale food, beverage and retail operations with a background in hospitality, retail or leisure.  The Associate Director – Food and Retail will lead a large team in the delivery of the “Food Fellows” brand. The postholder will also work with the University’s commercial partners to deliver a vibrant retail offering, that is attractive to a diverse customer base. You will drive the commercial and financial aspirations of the University, whilst also delivering brand excellence.
