Would you like to help make a positive contribution to your local community?

We're on the hunt for a brilliant Independent College Governor to join Loughborough College's Corporation Board and help us deliver our vision of: Broadening Horizons, Transforming Lives and Shaping Futures.

The role of the Corporation is to agree and oversee the strategic direction of the College and to drive forward our mission of transforming and enriching lives through lifelong learning, empowering the workforce of tomorrow.

You will help to shape the College to ensure that our technical and academic curricula are at the leading edge, and that the College has the resources to deliver its ambition.

We are specifically seeking to strengthen the team with a candidate who has current experience in a senior role with a leading regional, national or multinational employer, or in a similar role with a major employer representative body.

Candidates must be committed to the College’s vision and have the ability to work in a team to make collective decisions. Previous experience as a governor or trustee, or in working at a senior level in a related field, would be an advantage.

Volunteering as a Governor is a great way to contribute to your local community, meet new people and improve the lives of the local community. You will develop transferable skills whilst putting existing skills and experience to good use. A programme of training and development for governors is provided and the Board is keen to promote diversity of its membership across all protected characteristics.


At Loughborough College, we offer a diverse range of courses from Foundation to Degree level and our 9,000 students receive an exceptional learning experience, in a high-quality and expanding campus. We have set ourselves ambitious targets and the pace of change is rapid. That’s exactly what excites and inspires us about writing the next chapter for Loughborough College, and we expect it will be the same for you.

We are and have consistently invested in providing our learners and employees with an outstanding and unrivalled range of modern facilities and resources.

PLEASE NOTE: This vacancy is for an independent governor, and is not open to College staff or students.

Loughborough College has been described as a “talent factory”, recognising our national reputation for supporting students who have gone on to become England captains, Premier League footballers or medal-winning Olympians and Paralympians.

But for us, the ‘talent factory’ name transcends sport and embodies the way of thinking; a code of living and the nucleus of our College DNA that we instill in all of our learners.
