We are looking for an inspiring leader with the ability to create an environment where others are empowered to make their best contribution – for our staff and our students.

As Academic Registrar and Secretary to the Board, you will play two key roles within the institution.

As Academic Registrar you will provide strategic leadership to a range of professional services supporting the student journey that includes Recruitment and Admissions, Quality Assurance and Enhancement, Student Records and Returns, Student Support Services and Academic Programme Support.

You will be excited by the opportunity to lead in setting a student-centred strategic direction for a complex set of student and academic facing services. You will have excellent knowledge and understanding of the HE sector context and ideally the Conservatoire sector. You will have a determination to continually improve services to meet the changing needs of our applicants, students, graduates and staff and support the delivery of strategic outcomes.

Through your membership of the Senior Management Team, you will play a senior leadership role across the whole institution and act as an advocate for policy and aligned services that support student voice, student progression and student outcomes.

As Secretary to the Board you will work with the Chair of the Board to ensure compliance with all relevant legislation and corporate governance requirements, ensuring that the Board of Governors receive appropriate, timely and high-quality information in a manner that allows them to monitor and scrutinise the Conservatoire’s activities and to challenge performance when required.


Closing Date for applications: 5pm on Friday 4th June 2021.
