Dear prospective applicant, 

In the top 12% of schools nationally, Crown Hills Community College blends a 70-year history of inclusive education with an innovative, forward-looking approach to providing a state education like no other to 1,500 students from inner city backgrounds.

The School now seeks to appoint an exceptional individual to work alongside the Principal, Vice Principal and five Assistant Principals, who together comprise the Senior Leadership Team. The Chief Operating Officer or Strategic Business Manager is involved in all areas of school life but takes the lead on matters relating to administration, admissions, estates, finance, health and safety, and legal and regulatory compliance. This is, therefore, an exciting opportunity to play an integral role in developing the School’s vision and for enhancing its operational and physical infrastructure.

To be successful, the appointee will possess a proven track record of providing excellent operational delivery across a comparable, diverse portfolio. We are looking for an adept manager with strong commercial acumen and experience of managing multi-disciplinary teams. Candidates will be assessed on their understanding of effective strategic leadership and their ability to work with others, including risk management.

This role will suit professionals with a high level of personal credibility and demonstrable experience in implementing a strategic vision. Outstanding communication skills and the personal authority to build strong relationships with pupils, staff and parents are essential, as is a deep commitment to the School’s aims and values. 

We welcome applications from those with both non-educational and educational backgrounds across the private, public and third sectors. 

Start date may be negotiable for the right candidate.
