DGCollege - Board Vacancy

Dumfries and Galloway College offers a wide range of qualifications and courses at further and higher education levels across a diverse curriculum.

The Board of Management of the College is looking for people with a strong commitment to changing lives and an understanding of the value of education and training. This is an opportunity to make an important contribution to the strategic direction and governance of the College. You will be part of a Regional College Board at a time when colleges are recognised as playing a key role in the journey taken by learners from school to employment or to higher education.

In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to be part of a team leading an organisation which contributes directly to economic growth through the provision of skills training for all ages, with an increased focus on the needs of employers.

Board members would be required to attend meetings of the Board and some of its Standing Committees (around ten meetings per year, in the daytime). Board Members are not remunerated but reasonable out-of-pocket expenses arising from attendance on Board business are reimbursed.

On commencement induction and training will be available.


If you would like to informally discuss the role, please contact Brian Johnstone, Chair of the Board of Management, Tel: 07850 706881 or Ann Walsh, Secretary to the Board of Management by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Closing Date: Midnight on Fri 3rd May 2019

Interviews will be held on Thu 30th May 2019 in Dumfries Guidance Notes for Applicants and an on-line application form are available at - https://jobs.dumgal.ac.uk/jobs.html


The Board of Management encourages applications from individuals representing all aspects of the communities of Dumfries and Galloway and would therefore welcome applications from under-represented groups (for example, in terms of age, gender, disability, ethnicity, religion and belief and LGBT identity).

The essential criterion is for you to have an appropriate level of commitment, knowledge and experience to add value to the deliberations and work of the Board of Management.
