About College of West Anglia

The College of West Anglia is one of the largest colleges in the Eastern region. Currently there are around 750 full-time and part-time staff and a student cohort of approximately 10,000. The College turnover was £28 million in 2019/20.

The College has completed a number of major building projects at all three campuses, investing over £50m over the last decade, the most recent being a £7.5m new build / refurbishment at the Wisbech campus and a £6.5m new build University Centre building at King’s Lynn campus. The College has been very successful at attracting capital funding grants and now has some of the best facilities in the sector. 

About the role

Our experienced Chair of the Finance & General Purposes Committee has completed their maximum term of office. We would like to attract a qualified accountant who will bring high-level financial acumen and the confidence to support and challenge the College’s financial management. This person will lead the Finance Committee for which you will need the relevant scale of experience and credibility to be chair of this highly competent team.

We are keen to bring diversity to our Board; we have a large Eastern European population in our learner community and strongly encourage people from that community, and others, to explore becoming a College Governor. Experience within education is not as important as the scale and level of your career experience within your particular field.
