An exciting new opportunity has arisen as Chief Operating Officer for a growing Multi-Academy Trust in Bournemouth.

The newly created role requires an inspirational leader is committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes and opportunities for the children within the MAT. The successful applicant will be experienced in Education, Finance and Accounting, and be able to support and contribute at Board level.

Ocean Learning Trust was formed in July 2015, when three church schools and one community school collaborated. It is imperative the Trust grows to ensure its long-term sustainability, and the CEO is seeking to appoint a COO to work in conjunction with him to ensure a long and successful future for the Trust. With other potential schools already in the pipeline to join the Trust, the newly created role of COO has huge scope and potential to develop further over the coming months/years as the Trust grows.
