Conservatoire for Dance and Drama vacancies in Registry and Research
We are recruiting for three roles to join the Conservatoire’s central services team located in Bloomsbury, London. The Conservatoire is a partnership of eight specialist schools: Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Central School of Ballet, LAMDA, London Contemporary Dance School, National Centre for Circus Arts, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, and RADA.
We are seeking to recruit an outstanding individual to the post of Academic Registrar, who will provide professional leadership to the Conservatoire’s quality assurance and registry function. The Academic Registrar will manage the existing arrangements for quality assurance, enhancement and registry services, but will also be expected to think creatively about how these services can best be developed to meet the needs of the Conservatoire, its schools and the nature of our programmes. The Academic Registrar is supported by two Assistant Registrars (one each for quality assurance and data). As a member, together with Chief Operating Officer & Registrar and the Director of Finance, of the Senior Management Team, the Academic Registrar will also make a major contribution to the success of the Conservatoire as a higher education institution.
