It is incredibly important that we find just the right person and so we would like to hear from our student and staff community to understand more about what you would expect our next Vice Chancellor to achieve and bring to our University.

“Your views on the culture here at Lincoln, what makes us special, and what our future should look like, would be really valuable to help inform the search for someone with the right skills, experience, and personal attributes.”

If you are interested in the opportunity, sessions on Microsoft Teams will be taking place and you can reserve a spot by emailing Sharon Smith at the university’s HR Department at [email protected].

Spaces for the sessions are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and the university is encouraging students “to get involved by contacting the email address above to request a place as soon as possible.
