Mathematics Mastery is a non-profit organisation, dedicated to transforming mathematics education in the UK. Based on international evidence and practice, our school improvement programme aims to enhance pupils’ understanding, enjoyment, resilience and attainment in mathematics. 

Mathematics Mastery was originally established as an Ark UK Programme in 2011 and has grown steadily over the last six years. We now work with over 4,500 teachers from 475 schools, and nearly 140,000 pupils are taught maths lessons designed and developed by us. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and confident senior leader to join our team at a time of organisational growth leading to independence. We are looking for a strategic thinker who has proven ability of translating an organisation’s vision into an effective operating model, as well as leading and implementing change in a sustainable manner.

You will be experienced in leading high performing teams and overseeing the operations function of either a charity or limited company – including human resources, IT, finance and governance.

The right candidate must have the skills and impetus to drive continual improvement to the conditions which allow our team to operate effectively.

A personal interest in maths is not essential, but an understanding and appreciation of its educational importance is. You will be passionate about driving change, supporting teachers and improving the life chances of young people.
