Plumstead Manor is a thriving and rapidly improved school recently judged Good by Ofsted (May 2018). We are dedicated to providing a world-class education to the young people and families of Royal Greenwich, and hold a strong commitment to promoting excellence, justice and success for all our young people.
Our goal is to inspire and nurture young people of all abilities and backgrounds to develop a love of learning which will sustain them throughout their lives. It is this which will successfully see them into further education and the fulfilling career of their choice. We believe that high quality teaching, in a safe and friendly environment, is the key to unlocking the potential of all our young people have, so that they can go on to change the world for the better.
We are looking to appoint an Operations Manager to be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school including cover, timetable, duty rotas, rooming, bookings from external partners, as well as project management relating to partnerships and curriculum provision across the school.
You will work closely with the DHT Curriculum to create and review the timetable.
You will also manage a team of cover supervisors, providing ongoing support and training and monitoring their performance.
You should ideally be qualified to Level 3 (BTEC and A level). Good organisational and planning skills are essential to be able to manage a heavy workload. You will also need the ability to successfully revise priorities within a planned programme of work and to be able to respond sensitively to enquiries, complaints and requests from a variety of sources. The ability to line manage staff and to work in partnership with other members of the team is also important. Five years successful experience in an administrative role, together with an understanding of the statutory and other requirements involved in school administration is essential.
We can offer you good career development, and the opportunity to join a friendly and successful team.
