This is a fantastic opportunity to continue your leadership journey in a well led, collaborative and supportive environment.  Little Ilford is a friendly, inclusive and oversubscribed school in Newham making a big difference to the lives of our diverse student community. In 2016 we moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building. We have a strong reputation and high expectations of both students and staff and consider this to be an exciting place to work and develop, where creativity and innovation are nurtured. We really know our students, and focus on them as individuals.  Pastoral systems are strong and we value a curriculum offer and activities that educate the whole child.

As a school we are absolutely committed to ensuring that all staff have access to comprehensive professional development and have developed an exciting and impactful programme designed to offer training that makes a real difference.  We value a good home/work balance and do what we can to support our staff in this respect.

We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and high calibre Business Manager to join our energetic and dynamic Senior Leadership Team. You will strategically plan and manage the school’s budget, oversee the school’s finance, HR,  Health & Safety, ICT and other administrative systems, and lead our excellent support team.

We will support and develop you to become an outstanding leader and provide working partnership opportunities with other schools.  We are an aspirational, reflective and creative learning community where all adults are learners who take risks in order to achieve excellent results for our students.  


We look forward to receiving your application.
