Careers Guidance and Employability Manager

Full-time Permanent 36 hours per week

Grade 9 SCP 23 -26 £34,737 - £37,462


Ashton Sixth Form College seeks to appoint an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate Careers Guidance and Employability Manager to lead and manage its already strong and well-established careers guidance and employability team. A wonderful opportunity has arisen due to promotion of the current post holder.   You will be joining us at an exciting time as the college ‘re-sets’ itself following two years of significant disruption. A newly structured SLT coincides with the beginning of a new three-year strategic phase, and this will provide a unique opportunity for the new post holder to contribute to shaping the college’s Careers and Employability Strategy.  We have much to build upon; the college has an excellent reputation, a strong track record of outcomes for students, an aspirational and supportive ethos, a hugely dedicated and talented staff, and of course, Ofsted ‘outstanding’ status. However, the challenge of the role is to strengthen the already well established and successful careers guidance and employability provision, evaluating the current provision and contributing to an improvement strategy that impacts all departments and students across college.


This role will appeal to someone who has a drive, passion and commitment to deliver outstanding support and a commitment to providing the best possible education for our students.  The role will involve working with senior leaders to plan and implement all careers and progression-related activities. The successful post holder will lead and manage the team involved in CEIAG, employability, work placements and Realising Aspirations to continuously improve standards for students.


If you feel you share our values, have the vision and drive for excellence and want to be part of a dedicated team, committed to ensuring that students fulfil their potential, then we would love to hear from you.
