Summary

Leicester Services Partnership formed from the joint venture partnership between the University of Leicester and its Students' Union and was the first of its kind in the UK amongst the Higher Education institutes to unify and deliver all catering, retail and bars operations across the campus and offering something entirely new for customers, starting with the launch of the retail brand ‘Here for U’. ‘Here for U’ is the visual brand of the equal partnership venture created to unify operations and deliver a consistent customer service experience as well as provide inspirational spaces to eat, drink, relax, reflect, learn and socialise here at the University of Leicester. This partnership and brand identity will signal change; offering a fresh new start to all those operating within in it and therefore benefiting the customer by offering exciting, vibrant and current food options and trends, improve the efficiency across the board by streamlining operations and attract new and retain customers through a variety of offers and discounts as well as an enticing loyalty scheme.

Job Description

The current CEO has taken the Partnership through the formation stage and the Board are now looking to recruit a new CEO to take the Partnership on a challenging, but exciting transformation into profit. The University of Leicester is currently undertaking a Capital Project to transform their Estate which in turn will alter the requirements for catering offerings on and around Campus.

To lead the Partnership through this transformation you will be innovative in your approach to business, with experience of the Higher Education sector as well as a commercial operation, preferably in the hospitality sector and/or the youth market. You will be engaging and have an inspirational leadership style to lead the organisation through a huge change programme.
