Assistant Principal MIS, IT & Innovation
Do you want to an exciting, dynamic and rewarding career and make a real difference?
Sunderland College is one of the largest colleges in the North East. Having successfully merged with Hartlepool Sixth-Form College, we have further exciting plans for community-based growth and have been selected by Northumberland College, subject to process as its merger partner. We are rated by Ofsted as Good with very stable finances and are on a student-focused, employer-led journey to be Outstanding.
To support our progress, we need an innovative and dynamic strategic leader to shape and develop how we best use our MIS and IT resources to generate business intelligence to support the very best decision making, to drive efficient curriculum planning and optimise funding and to continue to innovate and support our teachers and students to achieve 'Excellence'. This is a new role and will be an important member of our Senior Leadership Team.
The successful candidate will be a proven MIS and IT leader, an expert in FE funding who can demonstrate innovative approaches to simplify and transform existing systems and merge new ILR's. This appointee will use IT and MIS creatively to drive forward our business across a multi-campus college, stretching over a large geographical area. We are not looking for a 'data cruncher' but seek an energetic leader of a large team, who really does see the bigger picture
