Club Manager 

Salary scale:  Grade 3, Scale Point 15-17 £19,125 - £19,819 pa FTE 

Hours: 28 per week (term time) - Fixed Term Contract for 1 year  

STEP Academy Trust is a growing, multi academy group across London and East Sussex, committed to improving the life chances of children.  The Governors are seeking to recruit a professional, energetic and committed Club Manager to run a high quality before school and after school provision.  Based at David Livingstone Academy, you will be responsible for managing a team of play workers to ensure the smooth running of the out of school club.  The position requires a hands-on approach, combined with a flexible attitude.

David Livingstone Academy, part of STEP Academy Trust, seeks staff who believe in the Trust’s Values of:  

Passion — Working in education, we have the ability to profoundly change children’s lives; the stakes are incredibly high. Our aim should always be to provide for the pupils of our Academies what we would want for our own children.  

Urgency — The amount of time children spend in education is finite. We have a responsibility to ensure every moment a child is in a STEP Academy must be spent productively. Once wasted, it is gone forever and cannot be given back.  

Positivity — Staff have a responsibility to be positive and supportive of each other. Negativity leads to low expectations and a culture where excuses are tolerated.  

Aspiration — Embodied in the Trust motto, “Striving Together for Excellence in Partnership,” all members of staff aim for excellence in their individual professional roles.  

Commitment — Staff are prepared to go the extra mile to provide the best possible education for their pupils. The interests of children are always placed ahead of those of staff.
