Are you a skilled and knowledgeable senior leader in UK apprenticeships looking for a new challenge with a great provider?

University College of Estate Management (UCEM) is long-standing and leading provider of supported online education, especially apprenticeships. We exist to provide accessible, relevant and cost-effective education which enhances careers, increases professionalism and leads to a better Built Environment; we are also very passionate about sustainability. Operating from the UK and Hong Kong we have a global reach, and at any one time over 3,500 students are studying online with us.

Our apprenticeships provision is strong and healthy, and the team is incredibly committed and passionate about apprenticeship work, and employer and student satisfaction. We need you to lead and manage the team to ensure the effective planning, development, promotion and delivery of this high-quality apprenticeship provision. You will be expected to make sure we meet industry/employer needs and requirements, and that we motivate and engage apprentices to achieve and progress beyond their expectations. As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, you will align our apprenticeship provision to support the achievement of UCEM's core purpose and institutional objectives.

You must be able to handle the size and requirements of this role and whilst both demanding and pressured, it will be rewarding to see the impact your team makes on students and their careers. Needless to say we want you to have the relevant skills, knowledge and experience, and because the list of requirements is long, we urge you to take a look at our job specification at

At UCEM we expect employees to demonstrate our values: Passion, Integrity, Excellence and Support. Student satisfaction and success are our main drivers and our people consistently report high levels of employee satisfaction; your contribution will be valued, should you join us.
