Following the retirement of the current post holder, we are seeking to appoint a new  Director of Staff & Quality Services to this highly successful College. Our ideal candidate will have a successful track record of quality and curriculum management within a further education context, with strong proven leadership and management skills.

Bridgwater & Taunton College was formed by the merger of Bridgwater College and Somerset College in June 2016, creating one of the largest colleges in the country with a turnover of £53m, 1,600 staff and 20,000 students. The College is the winner of 14 AoC Beacon Awards, a second Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2016, and TES College of the Year in 2016. The College owes much of its success to two fundamental philosophies which it is expected that anyone joining the College will share: students come first and all staff employed at the College are team players.

The successful candidate will be expected to make an important contribution to the nine strong Senior Management Team, providing strategic leadership across quality, human resources and MIS and other associated support functions. You will need to be innovative, enterprising and energetic, and enjoy very effective working relationships with colleagues, students and employers alike. You will also need excellent communication skills and high levels of stamina for this demanding and highly rewarding role.

In return, we offer a highly competitive salary depending upon experience and an exceptional opportunity to lead this high performing Area of the College, supported by

a professional and positive team who are dedicated to achieving educational excellence.
