Following its Area Based Review and a public consultation, Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT) and New College Telford (NCT) are proposed to officially merge on 1 August 2017 and be rebranded as Telford College.

The merger of the two colleges will create a single college offering one of the widest choices of academic, professional and technical education and training opportunities in Shropshire, providing significant benefits to students, employers and the local communities.

It is an exciting time to be joining the senior team at Telford College. Following the appointment of the new Principal and CEO we have created an impactful new structure of Senior Leadership Posts to develop an outstanding college.

We are currently seeking a results-focused Director of Data and Performance to strategically oversee the college’s management information and data recording systems to ensure timely and efficient reporting, returns and funding applications. You will positively impact the college’s success through ensuring the highest level of information is provided across key remits, while initiating and implementing enhancements to systems and processes. You will lead, inspire and develop a successful team while providing impactful advice to the Principal and CEO and the Senior Leadership Team on funding streams, data reporting and performance improvement.

Our successful candidate will have robust experience of leading on data systems within a further education setting, with a sound understanding of funding methodologies and audit requirements. The ability to lead and embed system development and performance improvement is of paramount performance, as are strong communication and interpersonal skills. Ability to think strategically and develop a successful team should be combined with a hands-on, pragmatic approach.

This role represents an excellent opportunity not only to play a pivotal role in transforming our college but also to develop your own career aspirations.
