Become a College Governor

The Corporation is looking to appoint dynamic and forward thinking governors who would like to make a contribution in the local community, and bring a fresh perspective to governance.

During the next academic year the Corporation will be seeking a new governor who is a high level strategic thinker and/or who has financial experience.

Governors would be especially keen to hear from candidates who are female and /or of an ethnic minority background, in senior management positions (or equivalent).

The College is a large and complex organisation, with 600 staff, and over 12,000 students, with a turnover of £38m+.

The Corporation has the overall responsibility for the strategic direction, development and financial health of the College and helps to create an environment that supports students and staff in their endeavours.

The Corporation consists of 14 governors who are drawn from a wide range of business, industrial and professional backgrounds at various management levels, including three members of College staff and two student members.

Members attend monthly Corporation/committee meetings and give their time without payment. Appropriate training and support is available to new members.

For further information about becoming a governor please contact the Clerk to the Corporation on 01752 305300 or e-mail info@cityplym.ac.uk.
