New College Stamford is looking to appoint 2 new independent Corporation Members with finance and audit experience to enhance the expertise of the Board of Governors.  The Board of Governors determines the educational character of the College and has responsibility for monitoring its performance.  It plays a vital role in the oversight of the College as a £15m business, with responsibility for:

*  overall strategic leadership

*  sustainability and solvency

*  the annual budget and risk management

Corporation Members are responsible for making strategic decisions and holding the College’s Senior Leadership Team to account.  A member’s term of office is determined on an individual basis and up to a maximum of 6 years on a voluntary basis.


How many times a year does the Corporation Board meet and what are the typical meeting times?  Currently 6 meetings per academic year from 5.30-7.30pm.

When do the vacancies ideally need to be filled by?  Ideally up to and including September 2018 for the start of the new academic year.

Are there any other requests/requirements that aren’t included above?  Corporation Members usually also serve on one of the Board’s committees, which meet between 3 and 5 times per annum, dependent on the committee.  We are seeking one new governor (ideally a fully qualified accountant) to sit on our Finance & Resources sub-committee (5 meetings per year), and one new governor to Chair our Audit Committee (3 meetings per year).

If you have an interest in the provision of post-16 education in the Stamford and local area, we would be very happy to hear from you.  Further information can be found on our website: www.stamford.ac.uk

Please reply in the first instance to Ralph Devereux, Clerk to the Corporation at office.mpe@btconnect.com and c.c. Denise Pitt, Assistant Clerk to the Corporation at denise.pitt@stamford.ac.uk
