This is an exciting opportunity to join an outstanding school in a newly created Leadership post.
Whilst the postholder will manage two distinct specialities there are a number of core skills and qualities that the successful candidate must possess which are transferrable across the whole job remit. The successful candidate will have excellent organisational and people management skills as they lead and manage two key operational teams, and key contracts, within the school. The successful candidate must be a professional with excellent administrative and financial skills as the ability to manage budgets, write reports, bids and tenders is critical to this role across both specialities, as well as ensuring value for money. The successful candidate must be able to deliver key objectives using the skills and experience of our teams.
An appreciation of best practice, rules and legislation across both specialities is desirable although we welcome applications from premises specialists and/or ICT specialists. There must be a willingness to learn.
Reporting directly to the Headteacher, this role operates in the strategic and operational spheres of work and therefore the successful candidate must have a ‘can do’ attitude with the ability to balance the needs of the bigger picture whilst thriving on the detail at the operational level. A clear understanding of cost and value of money is important.
You must be proactive in your approach to work; planning, anticipating, communicating and reporting are skills that are required for the successful operation of this role.
You will be a committed team player with the ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders. The successful candidate will be confident in problem solving whilst providing excellent customer service to all our stakeholders. Saint Gregory’s has an established and successful team who pride themselves on providing our school community with exemplary pastoral and academic care and we are seeking a colleague who can exemplify this to the highest standards.
The successful candidate must demonstrate:
A clear understanding, and experience, of health and safety management
Experience of being a specialist in ICT or premises with recent and relevant work experience in either of these fields
A high degree of professionalism
The ability to work unsupervised, use initiative and make appropriate decisions
The ability to lead others and to hold them to account
Excellent administrative skills including report writing, assessing and evaluating information and planning and preparation
In return, the successful candidate can expect:
Outstanding professional support to help you develop your career
A vibrant and dynamic student body that deserves the very best in teaching and support
A rewarding and dynamic job role making a real, lasting and positive impact on our school community
Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
