Vacancy: Board of Governors

Katie Germer

Ravensbourne is a specialist higher education institution offering courses at pre-degree, undergraduate and postgraduate level in Design and Digital Media and is a champion of digital innovation and collaboration with industry.


A national treasure, Ravensbourne attracts students from all over the world to study in an extraordinary new building on the Greenwich Peninsula (next to the O2 arena), where we provide the specialist education, skills and opportunities needed for an outstanding creative career. Our alumni include film-makers Gareth Unwin and Simon Egan (The King’s Speech), fashion designers Stella McCartney and Bruce Oldfield, and the musician David Bowie.

We have embarked on significant consolidation and expansion and now need to add new Governors to help us through the challenges ahead. To balance our Board, we would like to hear from people with substantial senior experience in: finance and audit, further or higher education, and the creative sectors in which we operate. Governors must have a strategic outlook, impeccable integrity, high credibility and the time and desire to make a difference.

We are fortunate to operate in the most diverse city on earth. We welcome applications from suitably qualified people from all sections of the community.

These roles are unpaid, although reasonable expenses can be claimed.
