Careers Lead

Abbeyfield SchoolNorthamptonshire

This is an exciting opportunity to make a significant difference to the next stage of our journey as a Careers Lead.

Abbeyfield School is looking for an ambitious, experienced, committed and energetic professional who shares our vision and values and can support the aims and ethos of the school and Creative Education Trust.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with colleagues to make a significant difference to the next stage of our journey.  There is a real commitment to professional development within the school and the Trust making this is an ideal post for a colleague looking to develop a career within the school environment.

We, like all schools in the Trust pursue a rigorous and continuous programme of educational improvement, alongside an aim to provide pupils with a rich programme of co-curricular activities. Abbeyfield offers a varied diet of curriculum and enrichment opportunities and students benefit from Trust organised events such as the key concept launch days, debate and essay writing competitions and our annual days of Shakespeare performance and the Day of Sport. We are often the host school for these events to allow students to work in a professional theatre space. We are keen to expand further on the opportunities we provide for students to develop their creativity, resilience and independence.

We are passionate about students and staff having the opportunity to influence the future of the school. ‘Ambitious to Achieve’ was proposed by a Year 12 student and our new school values are the outcome of a student and staff vote.

We believe Abbeyfield is a very special place to work and we are excited about the future. If you are passionate about what we are trying to achieve then I look forward to receiving your application.

This role is offered at 10 hours per week, term time only. There may be the opportunity for the successful candidate to apply for additional hours at another local secondary school under the Creative Education Trust.
