AGCAS is please to announce that Dr Bob Gilworth has been appointed as AGCAS President-Elect for six months, leading to the commencement of a two-year terms of office as AGCAS President from 1 August 2018.

Skilled leadership 

Bob is Director of the Careers Group, University of London and has previously served on the Board of Directors as Research and Knowledge Director. His significant contribution in both roles will ensure that AGCAS benefits from continuity and skilled leadership. 

Bob commented: 

'Working with the Board, staff and the membership, I aim to provide strategic leadership which helps AGCAS and our members to survive and thrive in times of seismic change in the HE environment.

The role description says that the President 'actively champions the higher education careers profession'. I have worked in different institutions and now lead a very diverse group and a multi-institutional Careers Registration project. I have a very broad understanding of HE Careers Services and I am keen to use that to ensure that my championing of the profession covers the full range of our member services and the diversity of roles within them.' 

AGCAS President, Shelagh Green, commented: 

'I am delighted that Bob will take on the role of AGCAS President when I step down next summer. To a role which is in equal measure challenging and rewarding, Bob brings strong strategic and leadership skills coupled with sector wide experience: I know AGCAS will continue to develop a stronger voice, built on and representing the expertise of our members, during his presidency.'
