Establishing an organisational “students first” culture, you will ensure that learning, teaching, assessment and the overall student experience are of the highest possible quality. You will also ensure that the planning, development and delivery of all aspects of the curriculum is efficient, effective and sustainable, supporting the Group’s long-term financial strength.

The growth and development of Higher Education and Skills is a key strategic aim and through effective liaison and partnership work you will ensure that targeted growth in both student numbers and HE income is achieved.

In return you will receive a competitive remuneration package which includes generous annual leave entitlement and an excellent pension.
