Are you seeking an opportunity to play a major role in developing a new academy? If so, Bolder Academy is looking for a dynamic, energetic and skilled Business Manager.

Bolder Academy is a new, mixed, non-denominational academy which opened in September 2018. We have opened in temporary accommodation and then will move to a multimillion pound building in 2020.

We are looking for somebody to provide professional leadership and management of academy support staff in partnership with teaching staff, to enhance their effectiveness in order to achieve improved standards of learning and achievement in the academy. The Business Manager will have a broad, strategic role and oversee the business management of the academy – all the administrative and logistical aspects of running an academy so that these are done in the most effective and efficient way possible.

The successful applicant will have strong financial, communication skills and be a confident user of ICT packages. A good level of interpersonal skills to enable liaison with staff, parents/carers, students and any external organisations in a calm and confidential manner are essential, as is the ability to lead others.

The Academy has been set up by primary and secondary Headteachers from the London Borough of Hounslow to meet the demand for extra school places. We are already part of the community.

Extraordinary partnerships have been formed with key local businesses such as Sky, resulting in a ‘bold’ education: a traditional, highly academic curriculum combined with brilliant extra-curricular opportunities.

There is an excellent pension provided for staff (LGPS for non-teaching staff) and an Employee Assistance Programme provided for all staff with the Education Support Partnership. 

Closing date: 9am, Monday 20 May 2019

Further information and application forms, please go to the vacancies page on the website or contact the Headteacher, Heidi Swidenbank at

Bolder is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be required to undertake online safeguarding training and all positions are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Two references will be sought for every candidate that is called for interview. Bolder is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
