I would describe Borders College as family-friendly, flexible, collaborative and resourceful. What I enjoy the most is being surrounded by some genuinely lovely people who are all working towards the same goal, which is to create the very best experience for everyone in the college community.

Dale Clancy – Promoted Lecturer, STEM

Borders College is full of characters! The staff and students create this amazing culture; you make connections with these people and other organisations in the region which other workplaces are unable to offer. It is a demanding job, but the support network makes this a great place to work.

Pitra McNeill​ – Quality Improvement Manager

The campus at Galashiels had impressed me greatly, it’s been a breath of fresh air to see so many people happy at work and feeling valued.

Everything I needed to do my job was available to me from the first day, I work in a small team and we’re having a big impact. This is very motivational and rewarding.
