HEAD OF DIGITAL INNOVATION AND PROJECTS

HEAD OF DIGITAL INNOVATION AND PROJECTS – REF 221156R1

£46,460 - £50,500 - pay award pending

Runshaw College is one of the most successful colleges in the country, renowned locally and nationally for our outstanding results, friendly and supportive culture and focus on putting the student at the heart of all that we do.

We value our staff and students highly, and invest heavily in their development, support and wellbeing.  Situated in Leyland, Lancashire, the College is near the M6, M61 and M65 and within commuting distance of Manchester, Liverpool and the Lake District.  Our main Leyland campus is home to over 6000 learners and 650 staff. 

It is an exciting time in the development of our cross-college Digital Strategy, which will include a review of numerous college processes as well as the introduction of a new Student Records System, all with the aim of improving organisational efficiency and providing the best possible service to our students. 

This new role provides the opportunity for an experienced IT project manager to join our high-performing college management team to lead the introduction and implementation of a new Student Records System at the college (such as Advanced ProSuite, Tribal EBS or other sector-leading software), as well as developing and driving forward our over-arching Digital Strategy.    

These two projects will be the primary responsibilities of the successful candidate for at least the next two years, after which further innovations will be identified. 

You will take a pro-active and hands-on approach applying appropriate project management approaches across product and project assuring all aspects of the delivery, coordinating staff and resources across all aspects of the college.

You will be educated to at least degree level or have extensive relevant experience and are likely to have a relevant professional accreditation.  

Closing date: 12 noon, Friday 27th January 2023
