The Governors of The King's School, Gloucester seek to appoint a full time Bursar from Easter 2019, following the retirement of Ms Jacqui Millar after seven years of outstanding service to the School. The King's School is strongly positioned in a vibrant educational region. The School recently celebrated its 475th anniversary, the School roll (605 pupils aged 3-18) is at a historic high, a new Head was appointed in September 2017 and a 5 year Strategic Development Plan outlines the priorities for the School from 2018 - 2023. The new Bursar will therefore join a thriving School community and Senior Management Team at a very exciting time in the School's history.
The Bursar reports to the Headmaster for all day-to-day matters, and is accountable to the Governing Body, via the Chair of Governors, for the effective conduct of financial affairs, sound business management and administration, and the material state of the premises.
The successful candidate will be someone who is confident, has the ability to work under pressure, has the highest level of integrity and confidentiality and can meet deadlines in a very busy School office.
