New City College is the dynamic group of further education colleges in East London which comprises Tower Hamlets College, Hackney Community College, Epping Forest College Redbridge College, Havering College of Further & Higher Education and Havering Sixth form College. Our 6-college merger places the group at the forefront of further education in the region. With a turnover of £105m, 20,000 students and 1900 staff it is one of the strongest and most influential further education organisations in the country.

Our college environment is second to none. We have industry standard facilities and equipment at all campuses, expert staff and partnerships with other high-profile organisations which all prepare students for progression to higher education or successful careers.

East London is dynamic, innovative and entrepreneurial. As we develop our longer term vision, we will continue to ensure that we invest in our staff and other resources to provide a distinctive offer and excellent, supportive learning environment which meets the needs of students and employers and prepares local people for the changing workforce of the area.

As the College supports a number of children and vulnerable adults, all staff are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Accordingly, all staff will be subject to an 'Enhanced' DBS (formerly CRB) check, along with a Children's Barred List check if in regulated activity. Any offers of appointment may be withdrawn if these checks prove to be unsatisfactory to the College. Self-disclosure will be required as part of the recruitment process. If you fail to make a full disclosure or provide sight of your DBS certificate then your offer of employment is likely to be withdrawn. The College's DBS policy covers the recruitment of ex-offenders which is available upon request.

New City College aims to develop a workforce that reflects the diverse community we serve and actively welcome applications from candidates from a BAME background.
