Malvern St James is a leading boarding and day school for girls between the ages of 4 and 18.    The School is located in the heart of Malvern in Worcestershire, only two hours from London and one hour from Birmingham and has excellent transport links, with Great Malvern station situated just opposite the main School building. The MSJ bus service covers five counties to pick up and return girls each day. 

We are now seeking a Director of Operations and Compliance of the highest calibre to help us implement our ambitious vision and strategy.

You will be a member of the Senior Leadership Team.  You and your team will develop and drive the infrastructure, operations and compliance strategy required to support the School by the effective management and delivery of all non-financial support services to all parts of the School. You will ensure that facilities, administration and infrastructure projects are delivered in an efficient and cost-effective manner, meeting regulatory requirements and providing a high quality of service to all members of the community.

To succeed you will have proven experience of leading and managing matters relating to compliance, including HR, and of managing complex organisational matters.  You will demonstrate the ability to lead and develop a diverse team.

You may be an existing Bursar looking for a challenge in a larger organisation, or someone with facilities or compliance experience looking for promotion.  However, you must be able to plan and deliver projects and programmes, prioritise tasks, and allocate finite resources. Compliance Inspector status will be an advantage.

You will be a decision-taker who can communicate effectively to internal and external stakeholders. You will be highly IT literate with a proven capability to contribute strategically to the wider development of an organisation whilst retaining a strong grasp of operational detail.

Closing date: 22 March 2019 4.00pm
