Job Description

The Lanarkshire Colleges aim to be Scotland’s leading providers of College education and training, delivering a comprehensive, innovative curriculum that meets the needs of our students and the local economy.

The Region’s ambition is to ensure students are well prepared by providing future-oriented, high-quality learning for careers, life and success, and to support the people, businesses, economy and sustainable development of our communities and Scotland. As society continues to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, the colleges will continue their collaborative approach to working with each other and the Scottish Funding Council (SFC).

We are looking for people with a strong commitment to changing lives and an understanding of the value of education. You will be part of a dynamic and influential board during a period of considerable change and unparalleled opportunity for Lanarkshire and its learners.

To meet current and anticipated recruitment needs, we are seeking applications from individuals who have the ability to contribute to a dynamic board, which deals with a variety of complex and interesting issues and promotes the highest standards of governance.  To complement our existing strengths, we are particularly keen to receive applications from individuals with a wide variety of professional backgrounds including human resources, finance, audit, risk management, estates development, supply chain management and legal experience. 

We wish our Board to be representative of the communities we serve and you should have proven experience in, or knowledge of, our region.  We are also keen to hear from individuals with proven experience of education, industry and commerce, and the SME sector.

Applications are also encouraged from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, individuals from ethnic minority backgrounds, and people aged under 50.

Board Members do not receive a salary, but reasonable expenses are met.  Board meetings are normally held in the evenings 3/4 times per year; however, board members are expected to commit to membership of the board’s committees which can be held during the college day to promote engagement with the wider college community.

A PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) check will be required as a condition of appointment and all non-executive appointments to the Board are subject to ratification by Scottish Ministers on recommendation from the Chair of the Board. Members of the Lanarkshire Board also have a specific legal role and defined responsibilities as a Charity Trustee under the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005.

Further information on the role of board members and the work of The Lanarkshire Board is available on the Board’s webpage at Lanarkshire Board Recruitment | New College Lanarkshire (

To arrange a confidential discussion on the role of a Board Member, please contact Diane McGill, Secretary to the Board at

Closing Date: 9.00am on Thursday 15th June 2023.  Please note that Interviews will be held on the 21st and 22nd June 2023.
