The TEC Partnership (made up of the Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education, Scarborough and Skegness College’s, the14-16 Academy and Modal Logistics) is a successful and ambitious educational organisation offering excellent education at all levels to our learners.

We have a forecast turnover of over £42 million this year. Our main campus is at Grimsby together with other locations throughout Lincolnshire and in North Yorkshire and a growing network of National Employability Training Centres. We were judged to be “Outstanding” in 2017 and continue to build on this accolade aiming to be the leading Further and Higher Education provider in the country, in addition to our growing services to industry. We operate within a diverse and supportive Group structure and take great pride in our innovation and search for new opportunities in education, training and development.

Our current Director will shortly be moving to a new role outside the Partnership and we are now seeking a new Director of Finance to join us.

This exciting opportunity will suit an individual with a strategic perspective together with the intellectual and technical capacity to undertake the diverse needs of this role, which will also include responsibility for Purchasing, Management Information Services, Refectory Services, Legal and Risk Management. You will also actively explore new opportunities for funding and diversifying our income streams and play a key role in our investment and commercial strategies.

We are looking for a qualified accountant with a successful track record in setting business direction and converting long term objectives into action. You will thrive in a fast paced and challenging environment and demonstrate proven ability to lead and advise colleagues on all financial matters. It is likely that your career to date includes significant experience of leading a broad resources function within a large and complex organisation. Further Education experience would be a distinct advantage but this should not deter outstanding candidates who are able to quickly get to grips with the sector.

If you wish to have an informal telephone discussion with our Chief Executive, Gill Alton on this role please email goodhewp@grimsby.ac.uk to arrange a convenient time.

A formal assessment day for invited candidates will be held on Friday 5 April.
