An outstanding opportunity for an individual with vision and drive to lead a dynamic team in a large, vibrant and welcoming college.

Sparsholt College Hampshire delivers a broad education offer across two locations and University Centre Sparsholt. While maintaining the reputation of Sparsholt College as one of the leading land-based FE and HE colleges in the country, the college has doubled student enrolments with the turnaround of GFE and sixth form provision at Andover College, building a diverse, innovative and successful college community with more than 6,500 students and a c£29 million annual turnover.

In advance of the retirement of our current Principal next year, we are seeking to recruit a high calibre and inspiring individual no later than July 2020 to lead the college, University Centre and our subsidiary companies into our next phase.

Reporting to the Board of Governors, this role will appeal to an ambitious Principal seeking large-scale challenge, or an exceptional Deputy/Vice Principal who has the proven track record and skills necessary to succeed in this role. You should have strong commercial acumen, experience of curriculum development and delivery and outstanding communication skills. A background in land-based education is desirable but not essential.

The benefits package includes a competitive salary, 30 days holiday entitlement plus bank holidays and college closure days, private medical insurance and eligibility to join a defined benefit pension scheme. In addition, a family house on the Sparsholt countryside campus is provided for the better performance of duties.
