Chief Executive - United Colleges Group

Location: London

Salary: c£160,000

United Colleges Group (UCG) is a successful education and skills provider with unique op-portunities for future growth and ground-breaking development. Formed from the recent merger of City of Westminster College and the College of North West London, the Group is committed to making a lasting difference to the communities it serves. We are based in the heart of London and have a combined turnover of around £50m.

Our manifold successes include being one of the strongest apprenticeship providers in the country, operating many effective partnerships with key employers regionally and nationally, and achieving high-quality delivery of a diverse, responsive curriculum. We are keen to reach ever greater heights and have ambitious plans to increase our scope and impact. These include developing a state-of-the-art new campus in a prestigious location in the capital where we will create a technology-enhanced environment for our future learners.

Following the retirement of our current CEO, we are seeking a new leader who will spearhead future growth and innovation, identifying and developing commercial enterprises in the UK and internationally. Key to the post-holder’s success will be establishing a strong external pro-file and building effective partnerships which lead to new opportunities for the Group. Alongside this, you will ensure an ongoing culture of aspiration and high quality, harnessing and developing the skills of our talented workforce and embedding a focus of continuous im-provement.

Our ideal candidate will be a visible, inspirational senior leader, with proven expertise in mov-ing an organisation forward strategically and operationally through commercial expansion, curriculum provision or other significant outcomes. You should be an impactful ambassador who will champion the Group externally, with an enterprising and entrepreneurial approach to seize opportunities and inspire staff. We are flexible about sector background as long as you have demonstrable success in a standards-driven, client-centred organisation and share our passion for delivering ongoing excellence.
