This is a busy, dynamic, and challenging post working at the heart of the College supporting the Director of Operations.

The role holder is a key member of the College Professional Services Senior Management Team and will play an integral role in leading the ongoing development and successful implementation of the College strategy and ensure the continuing success and future development of the College’s activities.
