Chair of the Board of Governors

RNN Group

Location: Rotherham
Salary: Volunteer Position
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 21st February 2024
Closes: 14th March 2024
Job Ref: NSF000012

About the Role:

We are looking for an exceptional leader to build on the legacy of our outgoing Chair.  Under their leadership, the Group has taken decisive action to secure financial recovery, strengthen financial resilience and improve the quality of education across the Group. Our goal to be ‘outstanding’ is at the heart of everything that we do.  Our new Chair will help the RNN Group achieve this ambition for our students, our workforce, and the employers of the region.

You will relish a challenge, be ready to make key decisions and be able to bring both peers and stakeholders with you.  Though you may not have previous experience of the FE sector, you will be able to draw on comparable leadership experience and bring insights to this role.  Through your understanding of public sector finances, the economic realities of South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire and the role Further Education plays in changing society, you will build the profile of the Group and impact the lives of our students by strengthening and leading governance.

In return, you will find yourself rewarded by the support of a highly professional and committed Executive Leadership Team, whose skills are complemented by those of a diverse board of governors drawn from across the region. As we are currently recruiting a new Director of Governance, you will also be able to shape the Executive Team from the very start.

Able to offer your time flexibly, you will commit on average 3 days a month to your role with the Group. This is a voluntary role, and expenses will be paid in line with Group policy.  All meetings of the Board and its Committees currently take place in the early evening and some availability for daytime meetings with staff and stakeholders will also be needed.
