School Business Manager

Salary: SCP 44-47 £39,177 - £41,967

Start date: as soon as possible

Closing date: Monday 12th February 2018 

We are pleased to offer this exciting opportunity for an organised and highly motivated School Business Manager to take a lead on our support services. The appointed candidate will become a key member of our focused and ever improving school with an overall responsibility for ensuring our support services operate efficiently and effectively. 

We are looking for an ‘all-rounder’ who has confidence and experience in strategic planning, budget management, financial planning and monitoring as well as premises management. Previous line management experience is essential as the successful candidate will line manage the administrative, finance and catering managers and teams. You will also have responsibility for Health and Safety, HR and marketing. 

As a LEAD Academy, the successful candidate will receive strong levels of support from a well-established existing team, across all areas of the position including HR, Finance, Procurement and Health & Safety. Previous experience working within a school, or similar environment, would be preferable but is not essential. Similarly, a CSBM qualification or equivalent experience would be desirable but is also not essential.

Noel-Baker School converted to academy status as part of L.E.A.D Academy Trust on 1st February 2017. The school is now part of an Academy Trust, which was recently named by Ofsted's Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, as a "high performer" and was listed among the seven strong performing multi-academy trusts in the HMCI October commentary report; stating that it should be used as an example to others.

The new direction of the academy was further enforced by the school successfully appointing a new substantive Headteacher for September. This is an exciting and challenging time for Noel-Baker’s future development and the academy is on a journey of securing improvement and raising standards across all areas. The appointed candidate will benefit from joining a highly experienced, knowledgeable and passionate senior leadership team who offer excellent CPD alongside an array of opportunities to expand on your existing skills set.

The school has also been extensively transformed through the ‘building schools for the future’ programme with a new £34 million school that completed in September 2012 offering state of the art teaching and learning facilities.

Noel Baker has high aspirations for the future and this will be an exciting and challenging journey working alongside the new Headteacher. If you possess these qualities and share the Headteacher’s vision and excitement for the new opportunities this school offers, then we will be delighted to hear from you.

School visits are welcome and encouraged.
