Are you ready to inspire and lead our college?
Salary c.£125,000 + LGPS/TPS Pension + contribution to relocation expenses

Boston College is a medium-sized GFE college that is thriving and building a national reputation for excellence. Our academic, vocational and financial performance consistently shows the work that we do with our students and employers is of the highest quality around. Indeed, only a few weeks ago, Ofsted inspected our Residential facilities and provision and recognised us as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.
Our current Principal & CEO is leaving to take the helm at another college, and we aim to recruit a highly enthusiastic and skilled successor to continue and expand on the many excellent workstreams and projects that the whole team at Boston College has set in motion.

Our work in Boston and the surrounding area is critical to the Post-16 skills agenda and we are relied on by many to provide the skills that our local economy needs. We serve a diverse population and a wide range of employers, large and small, in key sectors such as Agri-tech and food manufacturing and engineering and we have invested heavily in our brand-new world-class Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology Centre. This is the first of over £10 million of capital investment to modernise our campus. Our work is highly valued and respected by our many stakeholders, and we are renowned for our innovative and adaptive skills-solutions.

The successful applicant will have the support of a highly committed and capable Board of Corporation and will inherit an enthusiastic and skilled Executive and Senior Leadership and Management Team who are committed to working together to continue our journey of excellence.

We require a passionate and driven professional to lead this college who has the experience to deliver educational excellence together with the wider strategic knowledge necessary to sustain our progressive growth and stability. You may already be a Principal in another college or an aspirational Deputy, Vice or Assistant Principal who has the capacity to make this final jump to lead a college in your own right. If you think that this might be you then please take your application further by having an initial discussion with our retained Recruitment Consultants at Protocol.
