Job Description

About the role

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 the 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.

The work of a Member of the Corporation Board (Governor) in setting Nottingham College’s strategic direction and providing leadership is central to the College’s success. By becoming a Governor, you will be joining a high performing board and successful college. This is your opportunity to steer provision that benefits the students, the local community and employers directly. Being a Governor at Nottingham College is hugely rewarding and is an opportunity to make a real difference to the communities we serve.

Who we are looking for

To support their ambition, Nottingham College are looking to appoint several new Governors to their Corporation Board – the governing body of the College. They 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 their leadership through the appraisal of reports, plans and strategies. Based on the plans for Nottingham College, we welcome interest from those with substantial leadership experience from the following sectors:

  • Education (leadership/curriculum/apprenticeships/skills)
  • Digital Innovation
  • Finance

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

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 which can be discussed with you on appointment.
