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.  It aims to ensure that every student, whatever their background, has a fulfilling experience of higher education that enriches their lives and careers.

The Director of Data, Foresight and Analysis, and the Director of External Relations and Communications are senior leadership roles within the OfS, forming two of six directors reporting into the Chief Executive.  This strategic leadership team will collectively and individually be required to demonstrate strong leadership capability.

In the first year the strategic leadership team will collectively, with the Chair and Chief Executive, be responsible for clarifying and delivering the organisational strategy, developing a new organisational culture, and enabling the delivery of the operational objectives.

The Head of Legal Services will provide strategic support to the OfS Board, the Chief Executive and staff, helping to set corporate priorities, legal strategies and objectives, and supporting all regulatory decisions.  This role offers a rare opportunity to deliver tangible results for a new high-profile regulator.

If you bring these skills and experiences and 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 Jude Watters (07594 250060); we would be delighted to hear from you.

Kindest regards


Nicola Dandridge
Chief Executive Officer
