Board Members

This appointment is closed and is displayed for reference only. 


Remuneration:Unremunerated (reasonable expenses paid) 

Location:Argyll & Bute  

Closing date:20 January 2020 at midnight 


We are seeking up to four individuals to join the Board of Governors of Argyll College, University of the Highlands and Islands. We are particularly seeking members from any of the following backgrounds:

  • Experience in further and/or higher education

  • Experience in accountancy and finance

  • Experience of industry and commerce relevant to our region

  • Experience of large scale infrastructure project management

We would, however, like to hear from individuals with experience in other areas which may add to the current Board’s knowledge and expertise, and who are committed to delivering excellent educational opportunities locally.

Our Board meets quarterly and you would also be expected to sit on committees which also meet every three months. If you understand the value and importance of education and training to the future prosperity of Argyll and the islands, we would like to hear from you.  These positions are not remunerated however reasonable travel and subsistence expenses will be reimbursed.  Meetings can be attended by video conferencing and some of our current Board members live as far afield as Edinburgh.

Argyll College was formed in 1999 to deliver further and higher education in one of the most geographically fragmented areas of Scotland.  The college has grown significantly and now consists of 10 Learning Centres covering Argyll, Bute and Arran. Its educational offering is broad working with schools right up to postgraduate level as a partner in the University of the Highlands and Islands. We harness technology to reach students across the region and we have won awards for our work.

With a new Principal in post and the development of a new strategy underway, this is an exciting time to join the Board.

We are keen to receive applications from under-represented groups.

For an informal discussion on the role, please contact the current Chair, Andrew Campbell on Andrew.M.G.Campbell@uhi.ac.uk or 07935 229662.
