Non-Executive Director - Cogent Skills
Date Posted: 21/05/2019
Closing Date: 10/06/2019
Cogent Skills is a strategic skills organisation that works closely with leading employers in the Science Industries to raise skill levels, prepare people for employment opportunities and connect them with potential employers. We are an employer-led organisation and have established excellent networks and partnerships within the sector and with government, enabling us to play an influential role in the skills agenda, developing today’s workforce and creating tomorrow’s.
We now have an opportunity for a talented FE leader to join our Board as a Non-Executive Director. We are keen to engage someone with practical experience and knowledge of effective governance in relation to the delivery of apprenticeships – who can ask the right questions of colleagues, bring their own expertise to bear in an advisory capacity and raise standards, which will lead to better outcomes for our apprentices and for employers.
It’s a role that offers considerable scope to develop your strategic leadership experience, and to build your network with senior representatives of high profile commercial organisations. It offers an ideal platform for you to apply your professional and academic expertise in a very different environment.
This is a voluntary role, with the expectation that you attend 4-8 board and sub-committee meetings during the year.

Closing date: 10th June.
