Nolan Smith, Director of Resources, Finance and Transformation

Dear Candidate

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in working for the Office for Students (OfS).

The OfS is England’s new independent regulator for our world-leading higher education sector. We want to ensure that every student, whatever their background, has a fulfilling experience of higher education that enriches their lives and careers. We became operational in April this year, so this is an exciting and busy time for us, as we shape the role and practices of a brand-new regulatory body.

The Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development role will provide strategic support to me as the Director of Resources, Finance and Transformation, and more broadly to the OfS board, chief executive and staff, enabling the delivery of all OfS objectives. The role will have important management and leadership responsibility and is crucial to the effective running of this significant and new organisation.

My brief covers the effective use of all OfS resources, including our talented people. As such, having an ambitious and experienced lead for Human Resources and Organisational Development is essential to the delivery of all OfS business objectives. It is a fantastic opportunity to influence the running of a forward thinking public sector organisation as it transforms itself into a high performing regulator.

We have already started our transformation journey and if you would like to be part of this exciting opportunity, then we look forward to hearing from you. The appointment process is being supported by our advising consultants at GatenbySanderson, Paul Aristides (020 7426 3987) or Victoria Wakerley  (020 7426 3977); we would be delighted to hear from you.

Kindest regards,

Nolan Smith
Director of Resources, Finance and Transformation
