Vice Principal: Finance & Resources

Vice Principal: Finance & Resources

Located in Shropshire, Telford College provides a diverse range of academic, technical and vocational education and training for 16–18-year-olds, adults and apprentices within the region. We have been on an incredible journey of improvement, innovation and expansion which has recently culminated in the college achieving a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating following our first full inspection as a merged college, as well as having our financial stability listing upgraded to ‘Outstanding’.

These achievements place Telford College in a fantastic position to keep expanding and evolving and we continue to invest heavily in our university-standard facilities to provide fantastic resources, all backed up by the latest hi-tech learning platforms. We have a number of exciting projects, including our exciting plans for a new digital and maths hub in Telford’s town centre which will help to upskill the workforce and make the borough more appealing to inward investors.

As a result of an internal promotion within the leadership team, we are now seeking a Vice Principal Finance and Resources to provide strategic and senior leadership to the business support functions of the college. We are looking for a leader with moral purpose, who puts students first and has an unwavering commitment to pursue achievement for all. This really is a fantastic opportunity to drive a truly inclusive student-focused agenda.

We are seeking a visible leader to work with Governors and the Executive Leadership Team in developing and delivering the college’s strategic ambitions and priorities as well as working collaboratively with other senior colleagues in the development of new business models and new business opportunities. While FE experience is not essential, the successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate experience of working in a highly complex environment, and experience of working to similarly challenging funding regimes or the ability to quickly learn and adapt.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a current or aspiring leader, to work with a committed leadership team to drive forward plans for the next stages of our journey at Telford College.
