This post provides an outstanding opportunity to join a Senior Management Team in a College that enjoys a fantastic reputation in the sector.

With the HE landscape set to change dramatically in the short to medium term the successful candidate will need to navigate the College successfully through the changes. 

The College has a number of partnerships and franchise arrangements with several Universities.
