Coleg Cambria is regarded as one of the most successful colleges in the UK, based on our students’ results, impactful partnerships and reputation. Located in North Wales, we work at the heart of our communities and economies, building aspiration and skills, while making a significant contribution to the region’s economic growth.

A large and diverse College with an income in excess of £60 million, we provide a broad range of education and training, from top-performing A level programmes to employer focused vocational provision, a burgeoning Higher Education offer and a state-of-the-art farm to pioneer new technologies in digital agriculture and renewable energy. The College enjoys a strong financial position and we have invested £60 million over the last six years in developing innovative, industry-standard facilities.

Our new CEO has created a unique new role, Deputy Chief Executive – People Experiences & Culture, to ensure that our staff and students are prioritised at the highest level and that a strategic focus on people is a key driver in the future of our College.

Our successful candidate will bring a strong track record in senior leadership and people management within a large, complex, values-based organisation. CIPD qualified, you should have strategic experience of human resources, organisational development and business planning, with the ability to lead on new initiatives and manage cross-organisational change.
