An exceptional opportunity for an inspirational leader
Kirklees College is a large successful FE college, operating across seven vocational centres across Huddersfield and Dewsbury. With an income of £45million we offer a broad curriculum to over 12,000 students across full-time study, apprenticeships and part-time courses.
We are proud of our work with employers and of the way we are meeting local skills needs, creating opportunities and changing lives. We want the College to grow and flourish, based on a reputation for excellence and inclusion, serving the needs of students and employers. Significant capital investment has seen the recent opening of our iconic Pioneer Higher Skills Centre in the town.
As our new Vice Principal Finance & Resources we will expect you to work with skill, pace, and commitment, and focus on the strategic direction of the college, whilst ensuring sufficient attention to detail. We are seeking an inspirational leader who will play a key role in continuing our journey towards excellence. You will provide strategic leadership to our finances and estates, facilities and security managing key relationships and outcomes in areas such as audit and risk and take a lead on several key Board-level committees. You will be working with a progressive, committed, and supportive Board and Senior Leadership team who are ambitious for our students, communities, and employers. You will have the opportunity to take a leading role in reviewing, shaping, and implementing the next strategic phase for the college. This post provides an exciting opportunity to deliver successful, sustainable, and meaningful change and to contribute to the college being clearly recognised as a beacon of kindness, unity and excellence.
If you have a proven track record of achievement at a senior level in the education sector and are passionate about the positive economic and social role that FE at its best can play, then this could be the opportunity for you.
