The School Business Manager will provide professional leadership and management to the support services of the school and will enhance the effectiveness, success and improved efficiency of systems and resources, thereby ensuring a higher standard of learning and resulting in improved standards of achievement.

The SBM will promote the highest standards of business in the ethos of the administrative function of the school and ensure the most effective use of resources in support of the school’s learning objectives.

The successful candidate will be a valued member of the Senior Leadership Team and will interact with a wide variety of stakeholders including staff, governors, parents, pupils and contractors.

This role is key to the success of the school and we seek a SBM who has a positive attitude, who cares about making a difference to the outcomes of our children and contributing to the wider school community. The successful candidate will need to be a team player who is able to multi task effectively, motivate others and demonstrate a commitment to achieving high standards.

Additionally, central to the role is the identification of new funding streams and activities which will generate additional income for the school.

The successful candidate will work within an experienced leadership team and be afforded autonomy to lead and drive forward change.

Due to the current restrictions in schools we are not arranging school visits. The Headteacher would be happy to have a phone conversation if you have any questions. Please email cspanton@williampatten.hackney.sch.uk to arrange a time to speak to the Headteacher.
