The Governors and Headmaster invite applications from highly motivated, well qualified and experienced leaders for the position of Bursar. Davenies is a school that plans carefully and knows where it is going. This is an exciting opportunity to play a pivotal role in the continued success of this leading independent school, working as part of a successful senior leadership team and leading and developing a high-performing support team.
The Bursar is responsible for the delivery and efficiency of all support services at Davenies, as well as making a leading contribution to the school’s strategic direction and fulfilling the role of Clerk to the Governors. Areas of responsibility include finance, HR, estates, facilities, procurement, risk management and the generation of non-fee income.
Candidates from inside and outside the schools’ sector are welcome and will be able to demonstrate successful leadership at a senior level. Whilst a formal accountancy qualification is not essential, a good understanding of business finance is important, as is a working knowledge of charity and employment legislation, health and safety and compliance in its broadest sense.
An excellent package is on offer as well as the satisfaction that comes from using your existing skills and developing new ones where they will be really appreciated.
