Deputy Registrar to become Executive Director of Business and People Services at Royal Holloway

February 19th, 2024

Deputy Registrar and former Director of Careers and Employability, Stephen McAuliffe will be leaving the university to join Royal Holloway as Executive Director of Business and People Services from 1 June 2024.

Stephen currently co-chairs the University Operations Board and provides cross-university leadership on strategic projects.

He’s been in the Higher Education sector for 25 years, and has worked on major estate projects, digital transformations, wider HR transformations, transnational education, student recruitment and external relations work, as well as serving on major institutional boards and with council.

He has been key in creating an integrated, informed and responsive approach to enhancing the student experience across Student Services, Careers and Employability, Sport, Campus Life and Residential Life.

“Nottingham has a special place in my heart having spent nine years here, five as Director of Careers and Employability and more recently four years as Deputy Registrar.

During my time at UoN I’ve worked with some wonderful people focused on making positive impacts on students and helping them succeed at university, as well as prepare for their future lives – and it’s been a privilege to work with so many dedicated individuals. I will certainly miss them.

Royal Holloway offers me a new challenge. Their mission, traced back to their founding, is one that really appeals, and I am looking forward to working with the Vice-Chancellor and colleagues across the university.  It’s a great institution, with a special history, and I am looking forward to both contributing a lot to the university and learning a lot from my new colleagues.”

Registrar Dr Paul Greatrix said: “Stephen has been a great colleague and I have been hugely grateful to him for all that he has achieved as Deputy Registrar over the past four years.

He has made a big contribution within the Registrar’s department and more broadly across professional services and the university during this time.

I am sure everyone will want to join me in wishing Stephen all the very best of luck in his new executive level role at Royal Holloway and in thanking him for all he has contributed to student and university life at Nottingham in his current and previous roles.”
