The University’s Executive work in close partnership with the Senior Leadership Group, which includes UEB members, Professional Services Directors, academic Heads of Department and the Head of Organisational Development.

The purpose of the Senior Leadership Group is to facilitate a regular exchange of strategic information between the executive and operational leadership groups in the University. The Group is responsible for developing and implementing new ways of working, leading the activities required to deliver our key priorities, and ensuring work is carried out in ways that are aligned to our organisational behaviours and values.

The group does not have collectively any approval or decision making role but members are expected to contribute their respective strategic and operational leadership in both academic and professional service areas.
