The University of Northampton is one of the youngest universities in the UK, gaining full university status and research degree awarding powers in 2005. Whilst we may be a ‘new’ University, we have made our impact in the Higher Education sector. We are committed to making a difference to the world around us and doing things differently; for example, we were the first University in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012 and are dedicated to creating social impact in all that we do.
As a member of the University Leadership Team the post-holder will lead the successful delivery of the University’s ambitious estate, commercial, and facilities development plans in the context of the University’s strategy.
