Hereford College of Arts is a vibrant arts college with a specialist focus on art, media, design, popular music and performing arts. The curriculum includes undergraduate and postgraduate degrees alongside a range of further education programmes and a wide-ranging short course programme. Our mission is to empower creativity and enrich our world through transformative arts education and our board plays a vital role in our dynamic community of students, staff, fellows, partners and alumni. We are proud of our reputation and track record but have ambitious plans to develop and grow our distinctiveness, and the corporation recently committed to a new five year strategy. Hereford city and the wider region are also full of ambition with new cultural initiatives and enterprises, and an innovative engineering university in development, which offer many opportunities for collaboration.
We have a strong and active board but with some governors reaching the ends of their terms of service in the near future we are seeking to recruit new members. We are particularly interested in people with a proven track in further or higher education or with significant business experience.

You’ll need to be committed to education, the arts and the college’s ethos: to collaborate with partners and promote Hereford College of Arts in the community and wider afield, both regionally and nationally.

There are six Board meetings and at least three Committee meetings annually (most but not all of the main board members are also committee members).

This is a voluntary appointment; reasonable travel, subsistence and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

For more information, please e-mail Linda Watkins, Clerk to the Governors or telephone 01432 379351.

The College is an Equal Opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. All posts are subject to DBS checks.

37 hours per week
Up to £25,000 per annum (depending on experience and qualifications)

We are seeking to appoint an HE Operations and Strategy Implementation Manager to support the effective implementation of HCA’s new strategy, as well as improve the administration of our growing portfolio of HE courses. We are looking for someone who can help devise and introduce new systems to respond to strategic priorities, and model and support changes in practice and culture.

You will work closely with members of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), Course Leaders, and Registry and gain an insight into many aspects of college leadership and management.

We have recently started implementing an ambitious new strategy that impacts on every area of the college but need your help with the compilation and close tracking of action plans and reports to SLT, the college board and our regulators. However, the remit of the role is broad and you’ll also need to be happy delivering more straightforward administrative tasks to ensure the smooth operational running of our HE courses.

For further information and an application pack please e-mail Jobs or contact reception on 01432 273359.

Closing date for applications: Noon on Friday 29th March 2019

Interviews will be held on: Thursday 11th April 2019
