Business leaders invited to become governors at Hartpury College

Hartpury College is looking for members of the business community to join its governing boards at an exciting chapter in the education centre's history.

Renowned for its excellence in sport, equine and land-based studies, the college has governor vacancies available for motivated individuals with excellent leadership skills.

It has recently applied to transfer to a Higher Education Corporation (HEC) and university title, which if successful will allow it to offer two educational brands - Hartpury College and Hartpury University - both of which will have boards of governors.

Principal Russell Marchant (pictured) said: "This is an exciting time for Hartpury and we have several governor vacancies for motivated individuals to join our governing boards.

"If you want to make a positive difference, are passionate about education and transforming lives, want to be part of a unique journey and become involved in the wider interests of the college then we would be like to hear from you.

"You will be strategically aware, have sound judgement and excellent leadership skills.

"We are particularly interested, although not solely, in persons with strong business acumen linked to an accountancy qualification and recent experience at senior management level in secondary or further education particularly with A-levels."

While being a governor at Hartpury College is a voluntary role, reasonable out-of-pocket expenses and childcare will be paid.

With more than 25 years' experience in delivering Higher Education, Hartpury is a TEF gold institution and is only the second Further Education Corporation (FEC) to obtain Taught Degree Awarding Powers.

If you would like to join a dynamic and progressive board, contact Rob Lee on 01452 702159 or email robert.lee@hartpury.ac.uk.
