The Hull York Medical School, the joint medical school of the University of Hull and the University of York, is seeking to appoint a new Chief Operating Officer (COO). The School operates across the University of Hull and York campuses and the NHS. This is an exciting time for the School; the undergraduate medical programme was recently expanded by 70% (first expanded cohort of students 19/20 will continue to expand until academic year 23/24).

The Hull York Medical School is seeking a highly talented operations manager to lead the operations of the School. This includes overseeing the implementation of expansion and a new School strategy, which is currently under development. Due to the joint nature of the School, the COO has relationships with the senior leadership teams at both universities and within the NHS.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who aligns to our values:

  • Everyone Counts: We promote a culture of diversity, respect and aspiration, and empower everyone to realise their potential.
  • Pursuing Excellence: We combine a pioneering approach with innovative methods to drive excellence in all we do.
  • Socially Responsible: We are dedicated to public service and to improving lives within our communities.
  • Collaborative: We work in partnership, recognising the strengths of others.

The University of York is managing this recruitment on behalf of the University of Hull and the University of York. The appointee will be a member of University of York staff, but will have responsibilities across the partnership and will require to be present on the Hull campus as frequently as on the York campus.
