Changing lives Creating futures
Principal and Chief Executive
Attractive remuneration package
At Croydon College we strive for excellence in all we do and we have ambitious plans for our future.
We’re one of the most successful providers of Further and Higher Education courses in the South East. We were recognised by Ofsted as Good with outstanding features in 2014, have a positive Quality Assurance Agency rating and we continue to improve and set high expectations of our students and staff. With sound finances, we provide courses across a wide range of subject areas and levels to meet the needs of a diverse student population. Our core values are Creativity, Respect, Aspiration, Integrity, Empowerment, Responsibility and Accountability.
This is an exciting time for us and we are seeking a new Principal and Chief Executive, who can build on our success to date and ensure that our college continues to evolve to meet the challenges of a dynamic sector, following the announcement of our current Principal’s retirement. Though requiring an empathy and understanding of the College’s mission and purpose, it is not essential that our new Chief Executive comes from the further education sector.
Located in the heart of Croydon town centre, where there is significant regeneration taking place, and with strong links with the local authority and local businesses, this is an opportunity for an individual with an outstanding track record of leadership and management. You will bring the strategic skills to set out a bold vision for sustainability and future growth. Your commercial leadership skills will enable you to think creatively about new business opportunities and develop further the culture of robust and innovative thinking. Adept at managing external relationships in what is a highly complex external stakeholder map, whilst providing strong and inspirational leadership internally, will require a candidate of integrity, intellect, impeccable judgement and charisma. Above all you must bring a commitment to the learning community of Croydon, ensuring they continue to receive a high quality education experience to the benefit of all.
