Salary Range:

At Bolton, we have a family and collegiate feel yet we have embarked on an ambitious strategy to be the UK’s first “Teaching Intensive Research Informed (TIRI)” University. This means we provide high quality intensive teaching and individualised support to both our undergraduate and postgraduate students across all academic disciplines. This intensive teaching is underpinned by rigorous research that informs both the content and delivery of the curriculum.

Our TIRI strategy has been incredibly successful. Student satisfaction is at the absolute heart of everything we do and we’re delighted to have retained our position as the Number 1 University in Greater Manchester for student satisfaction for the sixth year in a row (National Student Survey). We’re also proud to be ranked 5th in the UK for teaching quality in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022. The University has also risen to its highest ever position of 38th out of 121 listed universities in the Guardian Good University Guide for 2023. The Faculty of Health & Wellbeing is vital to the future direction and success of the University and we enjoy an excellent and long-standing reputation among external stakeholders and collaborative partners for our high-quality and student-centred courses.

The Faculty is the University’s largest academic faculty and currently comprises approximately 3,600 students and circa 200 staff. It is home to three academic Schools (The School of Clinical & Biomedical Sciences; The School of Health & Society; and The School of Nursing & Midwifery) and each delivers an innovative portfolio of undergraduate and post-graduate courses (including apprenticeship provision). This brand-new role which reports directly to me will be absolutely pivotal in supporting the continued success and growth of our Faculty, as it builds strong partnerships and positions itself centre stage both regionally and nationally.
