Trinity College London is a leading international exam board and independent education charity that has been providing assessments around the world since 1877. We specialise in the assessment of communicative and performance skills covering music, drama, combined arts and English language. With over 850,000 candidates a year in more than 60 countries worldwide, Trinity qualifications are specifically designed to help students progress.

Trinity now seeks to appoint a new Group Director, Quality and Standards. Reporting to the Chief Executive, the Group Director will take a strategic lead on all issues relating to each regulatory environment in which Trinity operates. Leading a team of 20 people, the postholder will have legal, compliance, validation, audit, and risk management under his or her remit. Crucially, the appointed individual will make a significant contribution to the strategic direction of the organisation, working with the senior management team to ensure that Trinity maintains its agility and continues to thrive in a competitive and highly regulated market.

This role provides operational leadership and has responsibility for the delivery of efficient and effective regulatory quality and compliance services across the entire international Trinity organisation. This will include planning and managing the design and delivery of the business processes supporting significant events in the academic compliance and regulatory cycle across all international markets in which Trinity operates. 

The job holder will develop and implement a strategy for continuous improvement in the validity and reliability of Trinity's qualifications, through data analysis and clear reporting. This role will work across Trinity's matrix to ensure compliance with the requirements of Trinity's regulators, including Ofqual, QW, CEEA and ALTE and will provide advice on compliance issues to the wider Trinity network and will be the main point of contact for our regulators.

All applications should be accompanied by a CV and a covering letter. Completed applications should be uploaded at quoting the reference 4380 by noon GMT on Sunday 17th November 2019.
