The Governors invite applications for the post of Bursar and Clerk to the Governors on the retirement of the current Bursar at the end of December 2019.

Mayfield School is a leading Catholic independent boarding and day School for some 400 girls aged 11-18, situated in the East Sussex countryside, less than 50 miles from London and 40 minutes from Gatwick.  Described by the Independent Schools Inspectorate as "outstanding" and by Country Life as "one of the finest schools in the land", this is a unique opportunity to join a forward-thinking leadership team where you will enjoy being part of a strong community and dynamic School.

You will be a highly-motivated individual, innovative and business minded. As a critical member of the School’s Senior Management Team with responsibility for the financial, operational and business aspects of the School, you will have strong financial acumen although an accounting qualification is not essential. Being of the Catholic faith is not a requirement although you will be expected to have strong empathy with the core values of this warm and welcoming community. 

The successful applicant will be a strong communicator, a strategic and commercial thinker with a proven track record of financial and project management and effective leadership of teams.  The Governors will welcome applicants from both educational and non-educational backgrounds. 

The post is available from December 2019, and it is hoped that a meaningful period of handover will be possible for the successful candidate.
