Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

This is an exciting opportunity to join our federation of three schools delivering a seamless education to 9-18 year olds throughout Seaton Valley in south-east Northumberland.

We are seeking a highly motivated Business Manager to join our Senior Leadership Team. You will support the Executive Headteacher and Governing Body by contributing to the strategic direction of the federation and leading a range of business support services that ensure the effective day-to-day running of the schools.

You will personally have a key role in ensuring financial efficiency and sustainability of our schools in a challenging funding climate therefore it is essential that you have substantial experience of preparing, accounting for and monitoring large budgets and developing financial systems and financial reporting. Educated to degree level in a relevant discipline, you will ideally be a part-qualified accountant.

Significant experience of managing and developing multi-disciplinary teams, ideally across multiple sites, is needed. Your track record of contributing at a strategic level to school or service improvement will also show your ability to work in partnership with a range of stakeholders to achieve desired outcomes and impact. Although it is important that you can think strategically, you will also need to adopt a hands-on approach to deal with the diverse demands of school life and have highly developed communication skills to build effective relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.

If you have a passion for education then this is a fantastic opportunity to make a significant contribution to the federation and become an integral part of our future success. Our candidate information pack will tell you much more about this opportunity.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 12 noon on Monday 27 March 2017 by email to svfjobs@svlp.org.uk. It is expected that shortlisting will take place on Tuesday 28 March and the assessment process for shortlisted candidates will take place on Tuesday 4 April.
