Board Member and Governor – Nottingham College

Board Member and Governor – Nottingham College

Role: Board Member and Governor
Location: Nottingham
Remuneration: Unpaid, voluntary with reasonable expenses
Time expectation: A minimum of four hours per month

Nottingham College is one of the largest colleges in the UK with 34,000 students, 1,300 dedicated employees and ten campuses across Nottingham. We want to ensure that our focus is always on developing employment opportunities for our students through creative and inspirational teaching.  We plan to do this through overhauling our curriculum offer to make sure the qualifications we deliver are most appropriate for the aspirations of our students. We’ll also be heavily investing in our digital and IT infrastructure as well as continuing to review the quality of our estate.

To support our ambition we are looking to appoint several new Board Members (Governors) to our Corporation Board – the governing body of our College.  We are specifically looking for talented people who can add value to the discussions which take place at the Board and its committees through providing support and challenge to our leadership. You’ll be part of a Board which does this through the appraisal of reports, plans and strategies.  Based on our plans for Nottingham College we welcome interest from those with substantial leadership experience from the following sectors:

– Education (leadership, regulation and/or awarding)

– Estates and capital development

– Digital transformation and project management

Whilst having non-executive/board-level experience is desirable, what’s more important to us is your ability to work as part of our Board and provide the scrutiny required in an organisation of this size from a place of experience.  As a Member of our Corporation Board, you will become an integral part of the governance and oversight at the College.

Ideally, you should live or work locally to Nottingham as your attendance will be required at the meetings of the Corporation Board, which meets ten times per year. All Members are expected to join a committee of the Board and we can discuss this with you on appointment.

Closing Date: Monday 10th December 2018
