Role Description

The University of York exists for the public good. Enquiring minds, inspirational teaching, pioneering research, global ambition, local commitment, and social purpose are the foundations which underpin that commitment at our university.

We are a high-performing university where talented students, inspiring lecturers and world-class researchers thrive. We provide exceptional learning experiences that stay with our students for the rest of their lives, enabling them to flourish within and beyond their studies. Since our foundation in 1963, York’s focus on academic excellence has resulted in a strong reputation across the globe. We were ranked 18th in the Guardian’s Best University UK Universities 2022 League Table, and in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021 we were ranked in the Top 50 in the world for Arts and Humanities and in the top 100 for Social Sciences.

The University has embarked on a major investment programme in our physical and digital infrastructure as part of our new strategy and we are now seeking to appoint an experienced leader to the role of Assistant Director of Campus Services. Reporting to the Director of Accommodation, Campus & Commercial Services, and deputising when required across the portfolio, you will have overall responsibility for the management of campus operations from concept, through delivery and into full operation. You will also lead the wider directorate’s customer relationship management function and be responsible for areas such as the  university’s sustainable transport plan.

We are keen to explore applications from candidates with a proven track record in managing customer facing operations, with particular experience in facilities services. You will have a background in strategic leadership and planning and be able to contribute towards the University’s corporate planning objectives. Above all you must be able to drive and deliver a client-centred campus operation to a standard commensurate with a world-class university.
